Website Targets Celebrities and Politicians
Good morning America reports what could be a massive hacking scandal. Financial information from some very famous people has been posted online.
The list of possible victims runs from Michelle Obama and Joe Biden to Kim Kardashian, but is the information real?
On Monday- a website - the name of which ABC News is not disclosing - posted what hackers claim to be the social security numbers, credit card and personal banking information of a rapidly expanding list of stars and Washington officials.
The site's so-called "secret files" claim to reveal everything from how much Kim Kardashian pays for her car lease to Ashton Kutcher's American Express bill.
Overnight ABC News continued to reach out to those listed. So far none have commented and now some experts believe the entire site could be a fraud designed to embarrass celebrities.
This morning ABC News tried one phone number listed for the vice president. It turned out to be a Delaware feed store.
In addition to the First Lady, the website also targets FBI Director Robert Mueller and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. This morning, the Department of Justice tells ABC News it is now investigating.
The site which appears to originate in Russia, shows over 100 thousand views since Monday. Now investigators are hoping they can hunt down and shut down those behind it.
