Bill Gates is the latest celebrity to have had his personal information published on a website that has exposed the social security numbers, addresses and personal financial information of a number of people in the public eye.

 

As with the leak earlier this week of personal data belonging to - amongst others - the likes of Kim Kardashian, Michelle Obama, and Beyoncé, it appears that the private information has been sourced from a trio of credit reporting companies - Experian, Equifax and TransUnion.

Although the FBI are said to be investigating who is behind the "Secret Files" website, it is currently still accessible.

And whoever is behind the mystery website has been busy continuing to update it - with personal information of more public figures including Mitt Romney, Tiger Woods, and R Kelly as well as the founder of Microsoft.

 

What still isn't clear is just how unauthorised parties managed to fraudulently access the records of well-known figures without authorisation.

One theory is that those behind the website were able to gather information on the internet about the celebrities, and then use that data to successfully impersonate their targets and access the credit histories.

No doubt, in time, we'll find out. But how many more celebrities will find themselves doxed in the meantime?

A Biological Masterpiece, But Subject to Many Ills
The human foot is a biological masterpiece. Its strong, flexible, and functional design enables it to do its job well and without complaint?if you take care of it and don't take it for granted.
healthThe foot can be compared to a finely tuned race car, or a space shuttle, vehicles whose function dictates their design and structure. And like them, the human foot is complex, containing within its relatively small size 26 bones (the two feet contain a quarter of all the bones in the body), 33 joints, and a network of more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, to say nothing of blood vessels and nerves.
