What do Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Ashton Kutcher have in common with political figures like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and celebutantes Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton? All of those famous names were victims of a devastating hack today, when reams of personal details — we're talking social security records, phone numbers, and financial dealings — were uploaded online. TMZ reports that the LAPD and the FBI are investigating, and it's awfully personal for both entities, seeing as how LAPD chief Charlie Beck and FBI director Robert Mueller were two more of the hacking victims. Yikes. Better change your phone number, Joe Biden.
