The Department of Homeland Security is investigating a hack that exposed Leslie Jones’ personal information and posted explicit photos on her website.
“The investigation is currently ongoing,” the agency told TIME in a statement. “In order to protect the integrity of the case, no further details are available at this time.”
Hackers on Wednesday posted photos of the Ghostbusters star’s driver’s license and passport to her website, along with a photo of the gorilla Harambe and photos of Jones naked.
Jones’ website was taken down after the attack.
The comedian has been the target of frequent online attacks this summer, and briefly quit Twitter last month after trolls sent her a barrage of messages full of racist imagery and abusive language. Other celebrities, including Ghostbusters director Paul Feig, Katy Perry and Questlove came to her defense on Wednesday.
