 WASHINGTON (AP) — The Russian website where hackers had published the stolen credit reports for Michelle Obama, the attorney general, CIA director, FBI director and other politicians and celebrities has mysteriously disappeared. It's been inaccessible since late Tuesday.

Whoever was behind the website published a rambling statement earlier this week described as "our final message" and said the efforts were intended for "entertainment and laughs." The note was signed off with the message "from Russia with love." Before it shut down, the website published what it said were the credit reports of 29 politicians and celebrities.

Russian Internet executives told The Associated Press last week they were investigating whether the person who registered the website's Internet address had falsified their contact information, which would allow them to shut down the site.
