Paris Hilton 'Don't Trust the iCloud!!' ... Hacker Gets 5-Year Sentence

5/7/2018 9:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton's done stashing her nude photos on the iCloud -- she made that declaration on her way into the sentencing hearing of the woman who hacked her, and her private pics ... along with more than $100k.

One thing's for sure, Paris made one hell of an entrance ... you've gotta see her take on "courtroom attire." It's unclear if she will provide a victim statement during the hearing, but she made a couple big ones outside the courthouse.

In her most serious voice, she expressed concern about her privacy being violated, and then she dropped a bomb on Apple.

TMZ broke the story ... feds busted the hacker, Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan, back in November and she struck a deal, pleading guilty to bank fraud conspiracy. Prosecutors recommend a 57-month sentence.

Sounds like Paris wants at least that much.

10:05 AM -- A rep for the U.S. Attorney's Office says Bkhchadzhyan was sentenced to 57 months in prison. We also got Paris on her way out of the courthouse ... and she seemed satisfied justice had been served.

EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton is the victim of a hacker, who stole hundreds of thousands of dollars as well as nude photos ... TMZ has learned.

The hacker, a woman named Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan, was active from 2015 to 2017 and stole from Paris and 2 other people. According to docs, she hacked Hilton's bank accounts, and used her credit cards to make reservations for a 2015 New Year's Eve party at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel. The feds say Paytsar charged up to $40k on Paris' credit cards, that night alone.

Paytsar also impersonated Paris online, sending emails requesting Hilton's assistant wire $80k to one of Paytsar's accounts.

According to the docs, Paytsar jacked the naked pics from Paris' iCloud account, but it's unclear what she did with the material. She also hacked her dad, Rick Hilton and sister Nicky in an attempt to jack passwords for other accounts belonging Paris.

The hacker was busted in 2017 and pled guilty to bank fraud conspiracy.

She'll be sentenced on Monday, and federal prosecutors are recommending she get 57 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and pay restitution to the victims totaling $318,535.

Anderson Cooper called President Trump a "Pathetic loser" -- or so about 10 million people thought for an hour Wednesday morning.

The slam on 45 was tweeted from the CNN anchor's verified Twitter account in response to Trump tweeting he knew Roy Moore was going to lose all along. But what seemed like a great Twitter war in the making was not to be.

It was a hack ...according to Anderson.

Ted Cruz XXX Twitter Scandal Official Account 'Likes' Hardcore Porn

9/12/2017 6:14 AM PDT

Senator Ted Cruz is all about that hardcore threesome action -- at least, judging by his Twitter account which "liked" a very X-rated video late Monday night.

But here's the rub ... Cruz's spokesperson is strongly implying the Senator was hacked!!

The video in question was posted by the Twitter handle Sexuall Posts -- and featured a hot blonde lady diddling herself while secretly watching a man and a woman have sex. Good times.

Since "likes" are public -- someone noticed that Cruz's account had clicked the 'ol heart button for that particular post ... and it spread through social media like wildfire.

Particularly interesting considering Cruz is a hardcore religious conservative who once defended a Texas law which banned the sale of sex toys.

Cruz's Sr. Communications Adviser, Catherine Frazier, strongly insists the porn watcher ain't Cruz -- tweeting, "The offensive tweet posted on @Tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter."

So, careful everyone ... seems there might be someone out there hacking social media accounts and "liking" things they're not supposed to.

Marriott Hotels Wannabe Robin Hood Busted For Hacking to Slash Rates

4/11/2017 11:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marriott hotels got nailed by a disgruntled ex-employee who allegedly hacked into the reservation system and cut room rates to as little as $12 a night ... costing the company big money.

According to court docs ... Marriott fired Juan Rodriguez last August, and must have had a hint he wouldn't go quietly because he was ordered to stay away from the company computer system.

Several weeks later, he allegedly hacked Marriott's booking network to practically give rooms away. Prosecutors say he slashed rates on about 3,000 rooms from $159 - $499 per night ... to $12 - $59.

Rodriguez got nabbed because the IP address he used for his remote access matched an IP address used at his NYC home ... according to docs.

Tons of people made out on the Robin Hood-esque maneuver ... it ended up costing Marriott more than $50,000! Rodriguez was busted last week and hit with 3 felonies, including computer tampering and computer trespass.
