One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Ars Technica published an article titled Feds arrest “most hated man on the Internet” in revenge porn hacking case.

As the founder of one of the first highly profitable sites to post nude photos of people against their will, 27-year-old Hunter Moore had already been branded the most hated man on the Internet. On Thursday, he was arrested on federal charges claiming that he paid a man to break into the e-mail accounts of hundreds of victims and steal sexually explicit images that later showed up on Moore’s notorious isanyoneup.com site.

According to an indictment filed in federal court in Los Angeles, Moore paid $200 or more per week for images that he knew were obtained by illegally accessing the e-mail accounts. To cover his tracks, he used PayPal accounts that weren’t linked to his identity and at one point created new e-mail addresses and deleted data tied to past hack attacks. Moore’s arrangement with Charles “Gary” Evens, who is now 25, began at an unknown date and lasted until about May 2, 2012, prosecutors alleged in the 15-count charging document.
