Following the hacking of at least twelve of Hollywood’s biggest names, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned the likes of Mel Gibson, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and Hillary Clinton to forewarn their banks and other institutions of what is going on to further safeguard their finances.
TMZ reports that sources close to those affected by the hacking, which range from actors and reality stars to political figures, have been warned by the FBI to lock down their finances before the hacker can take anything more.
The hacker posted the financial and personal information of roughly twelve high-profile names on a Russian web address, USA Today reports.
Beyonce, Vice President Joe Biden, Paris Hilton and Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck were also affected by the hacking.
President Obama’s credit history and address were revealed, while Beyonce’s social security number and mortgage were posted.
“Most of it appears to be public information -- clippings from city budgets, real estate information," Bruce Borihanh said. "We're seeing if they accessed any private sites,” LAPD spokesman Officer Borihanh informed.
The information was posted on exposed.su and shows a gothic photograph of a child with her finger to her lips along with the quote, "If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve.”
