Hackers post ‘private data’ of Michelle Obama, FBI head
WASHINGTON—Suspected hackers have posted online what they say are personal data and credit files of US first lady Michelle Obama, FBI chief Robert Mueller and celebrities including Beyonce and Jay-Z.
The website posted what appeared to be reports from the leading credit rating agencies with personal financial information and social security numbers of Obama and the others.
Among those whose data was posted were Obama, Mueller, US Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Eric Holder, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and celebrities including Britney Spears, Mel Gibson and Ashton Kutcher.
The White House declined to comment, and credit rating agencies involved — Transunion, Equifax, Experian — did not immediately comment.
