I'd like to see Mel Gibson's as I'm interested to know just how much he spends on mind-altering drugs.
A rogue website has leaked what's claimed to be the detailed financial records of US celebs, politicians and other public figures. The site has published the alleged financial lowdown on US first lady Michelle Obama, blowhard Donald Trump, Arnold Schwarzenegger and both Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, among many others. Vice …
Actually, here in the US, the news was going on about another case of VIP types having their credit reports published.
It seems that one service that is used for annual credit report for end users was abused by nefarious parties for the purpose of violating their privacy.
OK, I'm using officialspeak for saying bad guys did bad things, what a shocker!
And lousy security let them do it.
For those interested in getting *my* credit report, let me save you the trouble. It reads "SHOOT ON SIGHT".
Costs .NE. Worth
It's unnecessarily expensive, due to mindless waste and inefficiency. "Aluminium no, do it again in Carbon Fibre. The fan base love a large price tag. Stuff the seats with crumpled cash-as-padding just to add to the price.
The LFA lacks an iPod socket and cup holders. Other that that it's perfect. Except that it's a Toyota (a rubbish badge, even when spelled "Lexus").
Your Opinion May Vary.
But not many. That guy that was publishing people's stolen (or otherwise inappropriately used) nude photos on his website, for the purposes of exposing them to friends and family, and referring them to a 'legal firm' who could have them taken down for a fee. He springs to mind.
Oh, and Clarkson when he said "You can't do anything with these details anyway" :)

Let's see: Solid, well engineered, still quite cool, get in it, turn it on and go, Lexus (Toyota)
Bonkers crazy, will probably kill you on the first corner, if it started this morning ferrari or lambo?
I'll go for the Lexus. A ferrari or Lambo is a toy for the track and marks you out as having a midlife crisis.
I don't 'need' credit as I have always lived within my income and now, as owner of a house and two mid-size 'motel' style hotels and a company with 35 employees, I continue to pay cash.
For reasons forced upon me by an inheritance, I had to open an account with HSBC. One of the conditions of the account was that they can copy my information to credit bureaus.
This, in normal circumstances, would have caused me to get somewhat excited but since I reside overseas and had a minimum amount in the account I was less concerned and much of the information was accurate only for my stop over in the UK..
But this mandatory loss of privacy has a silver lining.
In the years subsequent to opening my account, HSBC service has declined and the on-line 'customer service' only offers 'service' in name. So I acquired the personal information of senior HSBC management, and a few other do nothings employed there, by accessing credit information.
I can assure you, such people receiving an SMS message from an angry customer quickly elevates attention, and service, to address the problem!
In many countries this data appears on screens in many businesses and police authorities. This is worst in the USA.
