Christopher Chaney intruded into the email accounts of dozens of celebrities and then put naked photos of them online.
On top of 10 years in prison, he has also been ordered him to pay $66,179 in restitution.
According to MTV: “Chaney was arrested one month after the nude photos of Johansson hit the Internet. He pleaded guilty to nine counts of computer hacking and wiretapping for the unauthorized access of email accounts belonging to 50 people in the entertainment industry, including Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.”
THE HEADLINE? A LOT OF CELEBRITIES TAKE NUDE PHOTOS OF THEMSELVES.
Again according to MTV Chaney used pretty cunning means, saying: “Chaney’s illegal acts were discovered during an investigation by the FBI, and it was reported that Chaney gained access to celebrities’ passwords via careful monitoring of their activity on social media sites and then using public sources to scout the data he was looking for. He would then use personal contact lists of the email addresses to which he gained access to find email addresses of other celebrities, which further increased the number of celeb victims. Chaney also allegedly had emails automatically forwarded to him so he could continue to receive victims’ emails if the account holders changed their passwords.”
