Tiger Woods has joined an elite group of A-listers, including former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, whose private financial data has appeared on a hacker website, according to a Wednesday edition of the New York Daily News.
Woods, whose American Express card reportedly showed a balance of $14,826 earlier this month and who enjoyed a “good” credit rating, was apparently the victim of the same shady site that has published information about Romney, first lady Michelle Obama, Beyonce, Hillary Clinton, and wrestler Hulk Hogan, among a growing roster of high-profile public figures.
The unknown hacker or hackers go after celebrities’ financial data and post them on a site with an Internet address that ends with a suffix from the former Soviet Union, according to the News. The information includes social security numbers, credit card data, and other financial information.
The Daily News reviewed the website and concluded that the hackers employed Woods’ SSN and other private information to gain access to his credit card data via ScoreSense.com. The FBI, Secret Service, and Los Angeles Police Department are investigating, according to multiple reports.
