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.
