Hacker Christopher Chaney

You may have heard this week that the FBI finally busted the hacker (35-year-old Christopher Chaney) that has been leaking all those nude pics of famous chicks over the past few years (Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, Vanessa Hudgens, Renee Olstead, and Jessica Alba, just to name a few). So how did he do it? Did he have a supercomputer and a team of elite Romanian hackers working day and night to penetrate the celebs' accounts? No, actually. It's much dumber than that. From CNN:
Chaney allegedly was able to access passwords by monitoring social media and other online sites that the celebrities used, said Steven Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI's Los Angeles field office.

"You may have selected a password that's meaningful to you that you may disclose online with friends," said Steven Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI's Los Angeles field office. "Your pet's name or whatever. That's a clue to a hacker, to start there."

Chaney also allegedly used public sources to mine data about his victims, which included both males and females, all associated with the entertainment industry, authorities said.
You read that right. He guessed their passwords. He hacked into their accounts by guessing their fucking passwords. Amazing. Honestly, I'm surprised more celebrities haven't drowned in their bathtubs yet. They're that dumb.
