TMZ reported earlier this year that sources revealed the FBI is conducting a large scale investigation into a ring of hackers, and that authorities believe about 50 celebrities may be victims of the hacking ring.
The agents also believed that all 50 celebs trace back to one person, who is possibly the mastermind behind the hacking ring.
The FBI recemtly told the media they have an identity of the person believed to be the main person behind the ring.
FBI spokeswoman Ari Dekofsky has confirmed that the agency is investigating the person or group responsible for hacking celebrities' cell phones.
Due to it being an ongoing investigation, we are not at liberty to confirm specific victims or a number of victims, Dekofsky has said.
