One of the biggest and most far reaching celebrity hacks has recently been perpetrated, MTO News has learned.
The entertainment law firm of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, was the victim of a cyberattack and the professional cyber thieves reportedly stole the private information of dozens of celebrities, including: Lady Gaga, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Bruce Springsteen, Mary J. Blige, Ella Mai, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Cam Newton, Bette Midler, Jessica Simpson, Priyanka Chopra, Idina Menzel, HBO’s “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” and Run DMC.
In addition to the hacking, the cybercriminals are now threatening to release the stolen data to the public, if the law firm doesn't pay them.
The trove of data allegedly stolen from the New York-based firm is a total of 756 gigabytes of data. The information about the celebrities reportedly includes contracts, nondisclosure agreements, phone numbers and email addresses, and “personal correspondence."
In other words - they have ALL the celebrity's dirty laundry.
Representatives for Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks are not responding to media requests for comment.
