Although the scandal with the advent of thousands of nude photos and celebrity-themed movies has gone far beyond oblivion, the courts are still addressing the issue. And just another convicted person hacked into the account, which is a Chicago resident nicknamed Edward Majerczyk.
I recall that a few years ago, hackers using phishing got into their iCloud logins and passwords, where many celebrities kept their private material, also erotic. Thousands of naked stars, athletes and songwriters were leaked to the network and severely damaged their media image.
The FBI quickly caught one of the perpetrators of Ryan Collins, but the investigation revealed that the man could not act alone, so began searching for other involved. One of them is Chicago resident Edward Majerczyk, who has just been convicted of computer crimes. Man using phishing, he obtained passwords for iCloud accounts and Gmail mailboxes, which belong to over 300 people, including 30 celebs.
The prosecutor demanded five years’ imprisonment, but the court found it was enough for him to serve a prison sentence of 6 to 12 months. Interestingly, Majestic probably has nothing to do with Coliins and he seems to have acted on his own.
