Celebrity Hackers

We're Behind Swatting Pranks, Too

The hackers who've exposed the financial secrets of dozens of celebs are now taking credit for the recent string of high-profile swatting pranks in Hollywood ... including the one that just hit Diddy's house.

The hackers updated their website today, taking credit for the Diddy prank as well as the prank targeting Paris Hilton last month.

Sources close to the hacker investigation tell us, the hackers are also privately taking credit for every swatting prank that took place since authorities closed in on the original alleged swatting mastermind (a 12-year-old boy from California).

In addition to Diddy and Paris, we're told the hackers are bragging about swatting Kim Kardashian, Tom Cruise, Chris Brown ... and even the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

As we reported, the FBI has been investigating the hackers from the beginning. So far, no arrests have been made.

Honestly, if the hackers are all doing this overseas, like we all think they have, and aren't even American citizens... exactly what the hell can the FBI do about it?

I'm curious now, what do they gain by doing this? I don't see how this does anything, because we already know these people are rich as hell. Are they trying to get a movie made like the Bling Ring? If they could make a movie about a board game like battleship, I guess it's possible they could make one about a couple idiots playing internet Robin Hood.

They should be focusing on more important issues, like exposing the Montsano legislation that was recently passed.

With their smarts, they could have great jobs, but they choose this route?!?!? They need to be stopped.
