Hacker who stole celebrities' nude photos will plead guilty
Remember "Celebgate," when a hacker got into actresses' iCloud accounts and grabbed their nude photos?
The feds never forgot. And on Tuesday, the US Department of Justice said Ryan Collins, 36, has agreed to plead guilty to the 2014 hack that stole more than photos from celebrities' iCloud and Google accounts.
"[Collins] was charged today with felony computer hacking related to a phishing scheme that gave him illegal access to more than 100 Apple iCloud and Gmail accounts, including those belonging to members of the entertainment industry in Los Angeles," according to a statement from the Justice Department. Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Kaley Cuoco and Kate Upton, among others, confirmed the photos were authentic.
