The hackers responsible for exposing multiple celebrities” financial information fancy themselves heroic outlaws … because they secretly idolize Dexter, the vigilante serial killer from the Showtime show.
The first clue … there”s a quote from “Dexter” at the top of the hackers” website — “If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve.” The quote is from the Season 2 finale episode entitled “The British Invasion.”
But there”s another more secret message … if you search the website”s source code … you”ll discover a link to a hidden YouTube video that doesn”t appear anywhere on the hackers” page. The video contains the “Dexter” end credits theme music.
Then there”s the obvious parallels between Dexter”s “code” — only killing murderers — and the hackers” self-righteous vigilantism.
Among the celebs hacked … Kim Kardashian, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Donald Trump, Al Gore, and Hulk Hogan. It”s still unclear how the hackers selected their victims.
Also worth noting … the hackers list their motto on their Twitter account in Russian, which translates to “F**k the police.”
