"The investigation is currently ongoing. In order to protect the integrity of the case, no further details are available at this time," a Public Affairs Officer for the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement to ET.

The Ghostbusters star's official website was hacked on Wednesday, revealing her personal identification, including information found in her driver's license and passport. The hacker also leaked multiple nude photos of what appears to be Jones, as well as pictures of her with celebrities like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian West.

While Jones has yet to respond to the hack, many famous faces have taken to Twitter to throw their support behind the comic, including Hillary Clinton.

"@Lesdoggg, no one deserves this—least of all someone who brings us so much joy. I’m with you. –H," the Democratic nominee tweeted on Thursday.

Wednesday's hack wasn't the first time Jones has faced online bullies. Just last week, the Saturday Night Live star opened up to Time magazine about being bombarded with racist tweets earlier this summer. 

"I was in my apartment by myself, and I felt trapped," Jones revealed. "When you're reading all these gay and racial slurs, it was like, I can't fight y'all. I didn't know what to do. Do you call the police?”

"Then they got my email, and started sending me threats that they were going to cut off my head and stuff they do to 'N words.' It's not done to express an opinion, it's done to scare you," she said.
