FBI Targets Home of Man Linked to Celebrity Nude Hacks

According to search warrant affidavits obtained  by NBC News that were recently unsealed, the FBI seized the home of a Chicago man by the name of Emilio Herrera last October in connection with the massive hack attack that exposed nude photos of dozens of celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and Kristen Dunst. The affidavit did not list Herrera, age 30, as a suspect, but a single computer, owned by Herrera, linked to two email addresses that accessed compromised accounts. The documents state that nearly 600 accounts could have been breached by the hacking attack, and that 2,500 iCloud accounts were targeted.

When the story first broke last fall, Jennifer Lawrence told Vanity Fair:

It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these Web sites are responsible.

We at Film Dumpster could not agree with Ms. Lawrence more, and can only hope who ever is responsible for this is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
