Federal authorities accuse a 35-year-old Florida man of hacking into accounts on computers and other devices belonging to more than 50 people, including entertainers Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, Mila Kunis, Simone Harouche and Renee Olstead, officials announced Wednesday. Christopher Chaney of Jacksonville, Florida, was indicted on charges of accessing protected computers without authorization, damaging protected computers, wiretapping and aggravated identity theft, officials said. “Unfortunately, Mr. Chaney was able to access nude photos of some of the celebrities and some of them were uploaded on the Internet,” U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. said. A recently circulated nude photo of Johannsson is part of the investigation, he said. Chaney allegedly “also took financial information, movie scripts and conversations that the celebrities believed to be private,” Birotte told reporters. 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.

Get a DAMN JOB! Seriously. Who has this much time on their hands?!?!?
Christopher Chaney told press, “It started as curiosity and it turned into just being addictive… seeing the behind the scenes of what’s going on with these people you see on the big screen. I was almost relieved when they came and took the computer… because I didn’t know how to stop.”
If convicted, he could get up to 121 years in prison. WHOA! It’s all fun and games ’til someone gets hurt!
