Hacker Ring Appears to Make Good On Promise to Expose Celebritiesfrom threat level: A ring of hackers that boasted it would pry into celebrities’ phones and e-mail accounts appears to have delivered on that promise. Reported hacks of actresses Scarlett Johannson and Mila Kunis led to racy photos posted on the web. The FBI is reportedly investigating the alleged hack involving Johansson, as well as intrusions into the phone, Twitter and e-mail accounts of some 50 other celebrities, including Vanessa Hudgens and Jessica Alba. A group calling itself Hollywood Leaks, self-identified as an offshoot of Anonymous, boasted last month in a YouTube video that it would be targeting celebrities and the “Jew-controlled media” over the next weeks.
