IS YOUR CREDIT REPORT SAFE FROM HACKERS? POLITICIANS INCLUDING MICHELLE OBAMA, FBI DIRECTOR, LAPD CHIEF OF POLICE, KARDASHIAN, SCHWARZENEGGER, TIGER WOODS, BRITNEY, PARIS HILTON, DONALD TRUMP AND OTHERS EXPOSED (Updated)

Update 01: 3/13/13 CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUND ...

It appears that some are suggesting that this is a government inside job in order to produce more public awareness of cyber-crime and to allow the intelligence and law enforcement agencies to promote their agendas with Congress -- leading to a tightening of Internet security precautions rather than demanding that the three major credit reporting agencies tighten-up their procedures. It appears that these reports were accessed from a legitimate account using information (correct social security numbers, addresses, identifiers) previously obtained by persons unknown.   

Original Blog Post ...

It appears that a hacker has managed to obtain credit reports on Joe Biden, FBI Director Robert Mueller, Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck, former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin, Actors Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher, Jay Z, Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Hulk Hogan, Businessman Donald Trump, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Gore, Kanye West, Kris Jenner, Stacia Hylton (U.S. Marshals Director), Mitt Romney, and Tiger Woods which were prominently displayed for all to see on a website purportedly in Russia using the TLD (Top Level Domain) .SU.

What does this say about the security of Experian, Equifax and TransUnion, who will apparently sell your credit information to anyone they determine may have a legitimate need for such information? Can they even safeguard against shell companies who might establish accounts for the sole purpose of identity theft.

While the FBI, Secret Service and other agencies investigate this distressing matter, the damage has been done. If these reports are legitimate, and I have no reason to believe they are not, the social security numbers and some personal information has already been tossed into the wild. Prominent people, usually having more complex finances than most of us mere mortals, now have to change their social security numbers, bank account and credit card numbers and spend an unnecessary amount of time, effort and money cleaning up this obvious violation of their personal trust.

What the site looks like …

Bottom line …

You would expect that the credit repositories would have special safeguards to prevent high-profit reports from being accessed by unauthorized personnel. I am waiting to see if the reports were obtained using a real hack attack against the repository’s computers or simply order through a bogus third-party with poor system controls.

It is not easy to protect your credit reports – even with those so-called credit-locking services. So beware and scrutinize your credit card bills when they arrive.
