"Exposed.su" is a website where hackers are allegedly posting personal and financial information about celebrities and government officials. The information includes social security numbers, addresses, phone numbers and links to credit reports for at least seventeen high-profile individuals. According to a March 12 AP report, the list of names includes First lady Michelle Obama, Jay Z, Mel Gibson, Beyonce, Britney Spears and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Other names include Donald Trump, Chief Charlie Beck of the Los Angeles Police Department and FBI Director Robert Mueller.
The website's internet suffix was associated with the Soviet Union from 1990 to 1991. The site may have been taken offline for now, but has a dark opening page with a photo of a girl holding her finger up to her lips and the following statement,
"If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve."
An accompanying Twitter account had an anti-police message that was poorly translated from Russian to English.
The FBI and the Secret Service are investigating the site and the Los Angeles Police Department intends to find out how information about the Chief ended up there.
News about Exposed.su first appeared in a March 11 article in RT where the site was described as a hacker's page for posting the leaks. The site claims the leaks are the personal finance records of US politicians and celebrities.
The information is an odd collection of bits and pieces that range from years-old car leasing information for Ashton Kutcher to Jay Z's HSBC current mortgage account balance and a credit line. Some individuals had their home addresses and phone numbers listed. A call to one of the phone numbers listed for Beyonce Knowles led to a business management firm that works for high level entertainers and "select high net worth individuals."
The major concern right now is that social security numbers and other information could lead to identity theft.
