by at . Comments

A group of hackers obtained and exposed the personal financial information (SSNs, credit reports, account numbers) of Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Kim Kardashian, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Mel Gibson and others in an astonishingly brazen and successful breach of cyber-security this week.

The perpetrators were apparently inspired by Dexter Morgan himself.

The top of their website reads, "If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve," spoken by Michael C. Hall's character in the Dexter Season 2 finale:

The website's source code also includes a link to a hidden YouTube video that doesn't appear anywhere on the actual page - if you copy and paste it, the link takes you to the Dexter end credits music.

He is pretty awesome as far as self-righteous vigilantes go ... but the similarities end there. Dexter has no real interest in other people's money ... or notoriety, or calling attention to himself. At all.

Dexter Quotes

I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask... not just me. People think it's fun to pretend you're a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I'm not. Brother, friend, boyfriend - All part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let's see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.

Dexter Morgan

There are no secrets in life, just hidden truths that lie beneath the surface.
