LOS ANGELES (AP) — An FBI spokeswoman in Los Angeles says agents are investigating a series of computer hacking attacks on celebrities.

The FBI's Laura Eimiller said Wednesday that dozens of celebrities had been targeted by hackers, who stole personal information from email and other computer accounts.

She declined to provide further details, but several websites including TMZ have identified one of the victims as Scarlett Johansson.

A message left with the actress' spokeswoman was not immediately returned.
