Help Florida man arrested in Hollywood hacking probe
London, Oct 13 (ANI) A Florida man, Christopher Chaney, 35 has been arrested by the FBI following a probe into the hacking of email accounts that targeted mainly Hollywood celebrities.

The man is accused of hacking into more than 50 email accounts for the past year as a part of his operation Hacherazzi.

According to an FBI statement, the accused offered photos from the accounts to celebrity blog sites and is also alleged to have stolen financial information and film scripts, the BBC reported.

"Unfortunately, Mr Chaney was able to access nude photos of some of the celebrities and some of them were uploaded on the internet," the BBC quoted a US Attorney Andre Birotte Jr as saying.

The Attorney confirmed that a recently circulated nude picture of star Scarlett Johansson is also a part of the investigation.

Chaney, who is charged with hacking Google, Apple and Yahoo accounts allegedly set up each account to forward a copy of all the received emails to his account, according to the charge sheet issued by the LA grand jury.

If convicted on all the 26 charges including accessing and damaging computers, wire tapping and identity theft, the man is expected to face 121 years of imprisonment.

He allegedly used several online aliases, including "anonygrrl" and "jaxjaguars911".
