The FBI and Los Angeles law enforcement officials are investigating how a Russian website obtained the confidential financial records of celebrities and public officials, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The website, originating in the Soviet Union, published the social security numbers and credit reports of celebrities including Jay Z, Beyonce, Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher, Kim Kardashian and others.
Some of the information would be available in public records if an individual files for divorce or child support. The FBI is attempting to figure out how the website obtained the credit report of FBI Director Robert Mueller, Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck, and other public officials.
The website was updated today with personal information on former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and singer Britney Spears.
The website included references to cop killer Christopher Dorner, who committed suicide after killing 4 people during a violent rampage last month.
The website contained the message “#YouCantCornerTheDorner” and an image of a woman protesting police corruption, according to the AJC.
