Celebrity Hackers

Tons of Collateral Damage

Celebs like Kim Kardashian, Hillary Clinton, Mel Gibson, Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Kanye West aren't the only ones screwed by the hacking scandal -- TMZ has learned, their business teams have been PARALYZED by the massive security breach.

Several of the hacked celebrities -- who don't want to be named -- tell us, the phone numbers published online by the hackers have been blowing up all weekend.

Here's the rub ... the numbers don't belong to the celebs -- they're numbers of the celebs' lawyers, accountants, and business managers.

We're told fans have been calling the numbers nonstop, hoping to get through to the stars ... and it's become a gigantic pain in the ass -- in some cases more than 500 calls a day to a single number.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... authorities are working frantically to remove all of the info from the Internet ... a task that's next to impossible.

I guess all of there accounts have to be redone. This is identity theft to the max--they are going to all need new social security numbers. But they aren't the first people this has happened to nor will it be the last.

Why care so much about this case. Google just received a $7,000,000 fine for its Google Earth hacking. Might as well fined them nothing.

Common people do not matter.

So what! I've had my identity stolen. Know people that have been hacked also. I'm pretty sure they can easily fix their little problem. Us regular folk have to go through the real problems with that.
