The FBI has added a new word to the digital lexicon: Hackerazzi. That’s what they are labeling the case of Christopher Chaney, the Florida man accused of hacking into the online accounts of celebrities Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, and singer Christina Aguilera, among others.
Chaney allegedly tapped into financial information, movie scripts, and conversations that the actresses believed to be private. And the indictment accuses the 35-year-old Chaney of accessing nude photos of Johansson which were then circulated on the Internet.
Chaney, who claims his celebrity hacking started as curiosity and quickly grew to addiction, could face up to 121 years in federal prison if convicted of all 26 counts.
