Revenge Porn Sleaze Arrested for Hacking

Posted by: Maxine Brimmer (3 years, 8 months ago)

The operator of a revenge porn site has been arrested this week for allegedly hacking into hundreds of e-mail accounts to find compromising and sexually-explicit photos.

Hunter Moore, a 27-year-old from California, is the operator of a site which houses and streams revenge porn- if you have yet to come across this particular internet phenomenon, you’re the lucky one. The idea behind revenge porn involves jilted lovers and angry exes posting explicit material to shame their former partners online. Not content to allow bitter ex-boyfriends to upload content in their own town, Moore enlisted the help of 25-year-old hacker Charles Evens to break into the email accounts of hundreds of women and hunt for content.

Pictures stolen from personal inboxes by Evens and Moore shortly appeared on Moore’s website, according to the charges levelled against the men on Thursday. Moore reportedly encouraged Evens to hack into the accounts against a steady flow of payments up to $900, using anonymous PayPal transfers to hide their trail.

Revenge porn sites are coming under legal fire from all sides due to the obvious lack of consent from the victims featured in the leaked videos.
