The FBI is currently investigating the hack of comedian Leslie Jones‘ website and other accounts. Yesterday afternoon, hackers broke into Jones’ personal website and iCloud account, retrieved intimate photos of hers and posted to her Tumblr, along with her driver’s license, passport, her phone number and Twitter password. Although, Jones’ team took her Tumblr down as fast as they could, her personal photos already surfaced elsewhere.
Although the investigation is still in the early stages, TMZ says the authorities are “developing a strategy” for finding the person or group of people responsible for yesterday’s attack.
We will update as the story develops.
