Add Tiger Woods to the list of celebrities and public figures whose personal information has been published online by a computer hacker or hackers, according to reports Wednesday.
Woods joins a list of hacking victims that includes the likes of Michelle Obama, Mitt Romney, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Al Gore, Kanye West, Mel Gibson, Donald Trump and pro wrestler Hulk Hogan. Such information includes social security numbers, credit card bills and other personal financial information.
The information was made public on a website with an address suffix for the former Soviet Union. It was linked to a now-deactivated Twitter account in Russia.
The New York Daily News reviewed the site and reported it revealed Woods has an American Express balance of $14,826 and good credit standing.
Hogan was revealed on Tuesday to be one of the victims.
"We are aware of the problem and are taking all the necessary steps necessary to work with appropriate law enforcement agencies to bring whoever may have done this to the light of day," Hogan's lawyer David Houston told the Daily News.
