The hack of Leslie Jones’ website, which included the leaking of personal information and even nude photos, is now the subject of an investigation by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The hackers released a variety of Jones’ personal details and photos, from scans of her passport and driver’s license to selfies with celebrities like Kim Kardashian.
Jones’ website, JustLeslie.com, has since been taken down.
In a statement to Mashable, a spokesperson for DHS said, “The investigation is currently ongoing. In order to protect the integrity of the case, no further details are available at this time.”

Jones was the target of racist attacks via Twitter earlier this summer spurred on by alt-right activists criticizing Jones over her role in Ghostbusters which eventually prompted Jones to quit the social media platform for a time.
Just a short time later, though, Jones returned to Twitter after discussions with Twitter reps about the abuse. Her prolific tweeting of the opening days of the Olympics even led to NBC inviting her to Rio to see the games in person.
This new round of attacks on Jones has prompted fellow comedians and celebrities, including Ghostbusters director Paul Fieg, to lash out at trolls in support of the actress.
Jones herself has not issued a public statement on the incident and has not posted to her Twitter account since just before the hack.
