Man charged over Scarlett and Mila leaked pics

Thursday October 13, 2011

A US man has been charged with hacking into the emails of dozens of people, including Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, in a computer invasion scheme which targeted Hollywood celebrities.

Christopher Chaney, of Jacksonville, Florida, hacked Google, Apple and Yahoo email accounts last November and December.

He also 'hijacked' the forwarding feature so that a copy of every email received was sent, "virtually instantaneously", to an email account he controlled.

According to an indictment by a federal grand jury in LA there were more than 50 victims, including singer Christina Aguilera.

Mr Chaney allegedly used the hacker names "trainreqsuckswhat", "anonygrrl" and "jaxjaguars911".

He is charged with 25 counts of identity theft, unauthorised access and unauthorised damage to a protected computer.

The FBI announced that it had made an out-of-state arrest in a year-long investigation of celebrity hacking dubbed Operation Hackerazzi.

Nude shots of Scarlett appeared on an internet site earlier this year and TMZ.com reported that hackers stole them from her mobile phone.
