Following a yearlong investigation, FBI officials on Wednesday identified the man they say hacked into the email accounts of nearly 50 celebrities, including those of Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis.
The suspect, Christopher Chaney, an unemployed 35-year-old from Jacksonville, FL, apparently didn’t do it for the money, FBI officials say. Chaney allegedly worked from his home computer to mine data from magazines and websites, including posts on Twitter and Facebook to get passwords. The name of a dog, a favorite movie, an old address, or a sister’s name all aided his efforts.
Officials said that once Chaney obtained passwords, he could then gain access to the stars’ address books, photos and other files. He used an email forwarding program that automatically duplicated any messages the star received into his account.
Cheney allegedly began his hacking in November 2010 when he tapped into Christina Aguilera’s email and later posted pictures of the singer in a revealing photo. In December, Chaney managed to hack Mila Kunis’ accounts and stole several pictures. That same month, Chaney tapped into Scarlett Johansson’s accounts that contained several nude pictures. The photos soon circulated on several celebrity websites.
Cheney was arrested this week in Jacksonville and faces up to 121 years in prison if found guilty on all counts.
The mooted duet between Maroon 5′s Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera has been posted online.
The song is actually credited as “Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera” and is called ‘Moves Like Jagger’.
It’s a electro house stomper and the ‘featuring’ attribution is correct, Aguilera doesn’t sing anything beyond a ‘yeah’ until over two minutes in.
Aguilera posted an audio-only YouTube of the song on her website, with a blood-red cover of her and Levine’s faces.
But Maroon 5 posted a very neon lyrics YouTube of the song on their website, and a link to buy the single on iTunes.
The one-off collaboration stemmed from Levine and Aguilera both being judges on the NBC talent show The Voice.
Now we just have to wait for the other two judges, Cee-Lo Green the soul machine and country star Blake Shelton, to team up.
The Maroon 5 frontman ‘ who judges the talent show alongside Christina, Cee Lo Green and country singer Blake Shelton ‘ insists his alleged tension with the ‘Beautiful’ hitmaker is purely “reality TV fodder” and their professional relationship is “fine”.
Asked by US chat show host Jay Leno whether the pair get along, Adam said: “They fabricate a lot of that ‘ a lot of that’s reality television fodder.
“She’s fine, we bicker like brother and sister.”
Christina recently explained her role on the show ‘ which offers a $100,000 recording contact to the eventual winner ‘ is about providing positivity and being “completely involved” with the acts.
She said: “There is no good and bad. This isn’t about tearing people down. I want to bring these people up.
“We’re looking to get more involved with people starting out just like we did. We’re not just making commentary and then going home. We’re getting completely involved. I wish there was a show like this when I was starting. I’m ready to share it all.”
