Ya know... They should just go ahead and release all the information

| No Comments

I can not think of a nicer group of people to embarrass.  From the London Daily Mail:

Massive cyber heist rocks high society jeweller Graff: Russian gang demand multi-million ransom or they'll release private details of rich and famous - after leaking files on David Beckham, Oprah and Donald Trump

    • Russian hackers have taken personal details of world leaders, actors and tycoons
    • Victims believed to include Donald Trump, David Beckham and Sir Philip Green
    • Thought to be demanding millions in ransom money to stop further releases of sensitive information
    • Gang named Conti is behind data theft from the exclusive jewellery firm Graff

Hackers have plundered the personal details of world leaders, Hollywood A-listers and billionaire tycoons in a massive 'virtual heist' on exclusive jewellery firm Graff, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The cyber criminals have already leaked 69,000 confidential documents on to the so-called 'dark web', including files relating to Donald Trump, Oprah Winfrey, David Beckham and Sir Philip Green.

And they are thought to be demanding tens of millions of pounds in ransom money to stop the release of further sensitive information.

And why this could be embarrasing?

...and could prove embarrassing for customers who may, for example, have bought gifts for secret lovers or taken jewellery as bribes.

Hell - go for it.  Release everything.  Let them twist in the wind a little bit. Let the public see that these entitled people are just as able to commit foibles as the most "lowly" of us. They are only elevated because we think them to be elevated.  Money and/or ability in a specific field does not convey wisdom or class.
