Also among the hacked: Jay-Z, Mel Gibson, Paris Hilton, Eric Holder, and Joe Biden. But apparently Biden and Clinton weren't hacked too badly. Click for the full list.

The full story goes on to state that the hackers didn't get much on Hilary Clinton or Joe Biden. They must have forgot that Hillary and Joe are criminals themselves...kinda hard to dig up information on corrupt democrat thug politicians.

The scary thing to think about, that since this article was posted, many average joes have had their financial security compromised, whether it is having their credit cards stolen or social security numbers used by identity thrives. Its one of the many downsides of living in a digital society.
