Celebrities like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, and Elton John had their personal details stolen recently due to hackers.
The website for Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, a top law firm favoured by A-list stars, is currently down and the hackers claim to have accumulated a staggering 756GB of data including contracts and personal email addresses.
In a press statement confirming the attack, the New York law firm wrote, “We can confirm that we’ve been victimised by a cyber-attack. We have notified our clients and our staff. We have hired the world’s experts who specialise in this area, and we are working around the clock to address these matters.”
The cybercriminals allegedly sent a screenshot of Madonna’s contract they have retrieved and are now demanding payment in exchange for the details. The exact sum they’re demanding is currently unknown.
Unfortunately, the cyber hackers are not bluffing as they have posted a screenshot showing multiple folders, including Nicki Minaj, Andre 300, and Mariah Carey.
