Hunter Moore, the revenge porn kingpin and all around bay guy, was arrested by the FBI today, along with his literal partner in crime.
The 27-year-old founder of IsAnyoneUp.com, an infamous site which posted a grand collection of revenge porn photographs of unsuspecting victims, was arrested along with his hacking partner, 25-year-old Charles Evens. Both men are charged with 15-count indictments, which includes conspiracy, seven counts of unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information, and seven counts of aggravated identity theft. Turns out, Evens helped Moore hack his way into victims' email addresses, grabbing any x-rated pictures they could to post on the website. From the FBI:
The pictures were submitted without the victim's permission for purposes of revenge. However, to obtain more photos to populate the site, Moore allegedly instructed Evens to gain unauthorized access to – in other words, to hack into – victims' e-mail accounts. Moore sent payments to Evens in exchange for nude photos obtained unlawfully from the victims' accounts. Moore then posted the illegally obtained photos on his website, without the victims' consent. The indictment alleges that Evens hacked into email accounts belonging to hundreds of victims.
Moore is expected to make an appearance in federal court in Sacramento this afternoon.
