Russian hacker website with US celebrity credit reports disappears

LOS ANGELES

Hackers had published what were said to be stolen credit reports for rapper Kanye West, first lady Michelle Obama and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck among others last week. Twenty-nine reports were published.

Earlier this week the site published "our final message" saying the content was for "entertainment and laughs." The message signed off with "from Russia with love."

Russian Internet executives were investigating the site. If the site's contact information was falsified, they said last week, that would allow them to shut the site down.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
