*The hacking of Leslie Jones has reached the halls of Homeland Security, according to TMZ.
The department’s cyber-crimes unit has reportedly joined the FBI’s investigation into how someone was able to hack into the “Saturday Night Live” comedian’s website, iCloud and cell phone.
The culprits posted nude photos of the comedian on her website, along with her passport, driver’s license and other sensitive info.
We’ve learned the case has now been transferred to Homeland Security for 2 reasons — it has the most sophisticated cyber-crime unit in the country, and Leslie has history with the Dept.
One source tells TMZ Leslie had some sort of problem with catfishing in the past, and Homeland Security investigated the case. There’s some evidence a group from Japan may have been the culprit in the current case.
