A man who allegedly hacked into the phones of Hollywood stars (including that of part-Mexican actress Jessica Alba) and leaked private photos was arrested, TMZ reports. According to the website, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had known about the Floridian man for several months but the U.S. Attorney took action now.
In addition, TMZ reports that the FBI and believe he acted as a lone wolf and hacked celebrities’ accounts for a thrill. His identity has yet to be released.
Alba joins other Hollywood stars that claim to have been victimized by the hacker. Ali Larter and Emma Caulfield joins Alba, including Scarlett Johansson and Vanessa Hudgens, whose private photos and text messages were leaked, according to ABC News.
This isn’t the first time one of our stars was a victim of computer hacking. Earlier this year, part-Mexican teen star Selena Gomez told Latina.com that her e-mail account was hacked, so she lost Prince Royce’s e-mail address.
It’s unfortunate that this has happened to stars – we hope that no more compromising photos are leaked.
