Celebrity Hacker Arrest

Was He a Lone Wolf?

10/13/2011 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Chaney
TMZ has evidence ... Chris Chaney, the man who was arrested Wednesday for hacking the email accounts and cell phones of numerous celebrities, may not have been a lone wolf ... and there are other hackers who may have obtained access to the same nude photos Chaney allegedly distributed.

TMZ has not published the nude, hacked photos of several celebs, including Scarlett Johansson,  but we have received numerous emails from others who claimed to have had access.

One of the purported hackers began contacting us nearly 2 years ago, saying he wanted to take Chaney down.  But although he claimed to be assisting law enforcement, he sent TMZ nude photos of a number of celebs -- which we never published.

And a third purported hacker contacted TMZ and sent us hacked pictures of Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. The feds say Chaney hacked Mila's phone, but he may not have been the only one.

The FBI says Chaney acted as a lone wolf, but it appears others were also involved.

Of coarse TMZ didn't post them, they wait until the celebrity is dead and can't defend themselves. Then they post nude pics on the table.

I was gonna say something here...but right in the middle of thought, everything kinda slid off the edge into the I-Don't-Give-a-F*ck category. So, nevermind...and sorry about the last 11 seconds I just took out of your life.

Nobody "wants" to get caught doing anything wrong. Must have seemed like the right thing to say in order to not look like the voyeur he is. I really don't know what his mom and dad are going to be able to do with a grown azz man. Whatever they did didn't work the first time around, it sure won't work the second time.

Hi, sweety. My friends told me about BlackWhitefinder– č0 /Μ. She told me it is the best place to meet black and white singles whoever you want. I have tried. It is fantastic. You wanna get laid tonight? Come in and give it a shot, you will find someone you like there. Black or white even guys from different race. Have fun!

There are thousands of hackers, this guy used public information to hack into their accounts, he wasn't a rocket scientist.
Our tax dollars shouldn't go to cleaning up celebrity's stupidity.
