FBI arrests man for hacking Hollywood stars

The FBI arrested a Florida computer hacker on Wednesday for allegedly hacking into the computers of Hollywood stars including Scarlett Johansson and Christina Aguilera, the agency said.

Christopher Chaney, 35, was arrested in Jacksonville, Florida as a result of an 11-month investigation into hacking of over 50 celebrity victims also including the actress Mila Kunis, the FBI said in a statement.
Christina's computer was hacked last December, when racy photos of her also hit the Internet.
Mila's cell phone was hacked in September with photos of her including one in a bathtub spread online.
Steven Martinez, in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Los Angeles office, called Chaney's alleged actions a new form of, 'hackerazzi,' a play of the word, 'paparazzi,' of celebrity photographers.
