– The FBI and the US Secret Service are investigating after what appeared to be Michelle Obama’s credit report – including her social security number, phone numbers and bank, mortgage and credit card details – we’re posted on the internet along with those of celebrities and politicians.
Financial information purporting to relate to more than a dozen high-profile figures – including politicians Sarah Palin and Arnold Schwarzenegger, singers Beyoncé and Britney Spears, actors Mel Gibson and property tycoon Donald Trump – was published on a website believed to originate in Russia.
FBI agents said the people who published the details may have used information to obtain money from victims and warned those targeted to put fraud alerts on their bank accounts.
The details include the social security number, address and credit report of FBI director Robert Mueller, 30 pages relating to Los Angeles police chief Charlie Beck and information on US Vice-President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
A message posted with Mrs Obama’s details said: “Blame your husband, we still love you, Michelle.”
The so-called secret files also purportedly disclosed details such as the actor Ashton Kutcher’s American Express bill and how much Kim Kardashian pays for her car lease.
There was doubt over the authenticity of some records. A phone number listed for Mr Biden was a business in Delaware.
The website, exposed.su, had an address originally assigned to Soviet Union in 1990. It had been viewed by more than 200,00 people by Wednesday.
A Twitter account linked to it included a message in Russian that, loosely translated, said: “Hello world, we are exposed. Our goal is to show you all that this is only one of a few tricks up our sleeve.”
Police sources told the website TMZ that cyber criminals were using the credit information. They said the FBI had been aware of it for some time.
The latest example of cyber theft came as a US intelligence chief warned that the country faced mounting danger from attacks on infrastructure and digital espionage.
Director do National Intelligence James Clapper said in an annual report to Congress that unsophisticated attacks could penetrate poorly protected computer networks for power grids or similar systems.
The threat of a large-scale digital assault that could cripple a regional power network was genuine but remained a remote possibility, the report said – Nick Allen


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
