The FBI just released the grand jury indictment of a man who allegedly hacked into the email accounts of 50 victims, including dozens of celebrities.

The indictment was issued against 35-year-old Christopher Chaney of Jacksonville, Florida.  He was arrested this morning by FBI agents, on charges of identity theft, wiretapping and other charges.

According to federal officials, Chaney would use public information to access email accounts of his alleged victims, and then access computers and cell phones under the control of his victims.

Some of the alleged victims include Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, and celebrity stylist Simone Harouche. Some of the ill-gotten materials included naked photos.

As TMZ first reported, law enforcement sources tell us Chaney allegedly acted alone, and got no money for his alleged misdeeds -- rather, he did it for the thrill.

Chaney faces 121 years in federal prison if convicted on all counts.

A HUGE waste of tax payers money. Come on people if you have a smart phone it can be hacked. Don't keep anything on it that you don't want everyone else to see. Just like a diary - don't write anything personal that you don't expect someone else to read. Yeah everyone has a reasonable expecation of privacy but common sense has to trump that in some cases.

All celebrities should heed Reese Witherspoon's words a few months back --- hide all your sex tapes and nude pics.

I feel for all of these clebs but also the poor guy has suffered already because he had to look at nude pics of Christina Aguilera.

They should post nude pictures of him on the internet and embarrass him the way his victims were embarrassed. An eye for an eye !

People just don't learn a lesson from others. If I was stupid enough to take the pics in the first place after hearing about all the other "leaks," I'd delete them all...just saying..
