Christopher Chaney, known as celebrity hacker, has claimed that he would plead guilty to 5 counts of hacking into the email of the world celebrities. Christopher has hacked into the emails of Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, and Mila Kunis. Nude pictures of one of the celebrities eventually landed on the web.
Given that his charges include illegal access to a PC and wiretapping, Christopher Chaney faces up to sixty(!) years in jail. Press reports reveal that he has been arrested last October in frames of a year-long investigation of celebrity hacking that the police called “Operation Hackerazzi”. The authorities claimed Christopher hacked into the email accounts of over fifty people in the entertainment industry, including Scarlett Johansson and Christina Aguilera. Scarlett Johansson’s nude pictures were later posted online. Christina Aguilera also had some private pictures put on the Internet.
Scarlett Johansson told Vanity Fair that the naked snaps were initially sent to Ryan Reynolds, her now former husband. Christopher Chaney, who didn’t work for News International, has mined through publicly available information to find out password and security questions for celebrity email accounts. After this he hijacked a forwarding feature in such a way that a copy of every letter the celebrities received was forwarded to an account he controlled and waited for the news to roll in.
Christopher’s hard drive contained loads of private celebrity pictures and a document compiling their extensive personal information. He is accused of giving the pictures to gossip sites and another hacker, without making money from this activity. Christopher Chaney has since said sorry.

|Letting us see Scarlett johansson totally nude.. should get him 60 years in paradise.. for making our dreams come true.|
I am not usually attracted to white girls. Alas after seeing those pics I am in total agreement. lol
|Damn having a brain gets you know where now days. If they were smart they would make him work his term off defending against hacking. But instead they would prefer him to get anally raped by Bubba in the pin.||
