Celebrities and officials hacked; Michael Vick threatened

Brief news from elsewhere:

Jay-Z and Beyonce: Among those whose financial data was leaked. (Charles Krupa/AP)

What do Kim Kardashian, FBI Director Robert Mueller, Ashton Kutcher, Beyonce and Sarah Palin have in common? Their private financial information — or what purports to be their private information —  was leaked online by what appear to be Russian hackers, the AP reports. Authorities are investigating. Also: Data on Hillary Clinton, Jay-Z, Joe Biden, Mel Gibson, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and the Los Angeles police chief. (On the bright side for Paris Hilton, it seems she is now considered A-list again, at least by Russian hackers.) Now appears that Michelle Obama may be in the mix too.

Also: Michael Vick has cancelled book-signing appearances after getting threats of violence. (The Early Lead; Philadelphia magazine)
