The hacker who broke into the email accounts of Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, Mila Kunis and dozens of other celebrities has been identified as an apparently unemployed 35-year-old man living in Jacksonville, Fla., who the FBI said didn’t appear to have done it for money even though several allegedly pilfered images wound up on celebrity websites. From his personal computer, the L.A. Times reported, Christopher Chaney allegedly scoured celebrity magazines, websites and Twitter and Facebook posts to glean email addresses and password clues from the names of friends, children, siblings, pets or any seemingly innocuous personal information. Beginning in November 2010, the FBI said, Chaney hacked as many as 50 victims, many of them from electronic address books. Even if he didn’t try to sell information or photos or try to blackmail his targets, it’s way creepy, and if convicted Chaney faces up to 120 years in prison.
