Report: Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher among celebs targeted in hacking scheme
The three women, along with bold-faced names like Joe Biden, Robert Mueller, Eric Holder, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, Paris Hilton, Ashton Kutcher and Mel Gibson, have had their personal financial information exposed online by an unidentified website.
According to TMZ, the information that has been pilfered and posted include social security numbers, mortgage amounts, credit card information, car loans and other major numbers and codes that completely compromise their financial security.
Although the as-yet-unnamed site was able to get a good amount of information on most of the high-profile celebs and political figures, it reportedly had the most difficult time getting information on Clinton and Biden.
The LAPD and the FBI are both already on the case, TMZ reports.
In December, computer hacker Christopher Chaney plead guilty to nine felony counts, including wiretapping and unauthorized access to a computer, after hacking into the personal online accounts of celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Hudgens and Mila Kunis.
Instead of financial information, however, Chaney, 35, leaked nude photos of Johannsson, 28, and the other stars. He was sentenced to 10 years in jail for his crimes.
"I deeply apologize," he said in a statement to CNN in November 2011. "I know what I did was probably one of the worst invasions of privacy someone could experience."
