Hacked: Scarlett Johansson & Mila Kunis Mobile Phones

In August a hacker ring boldly claimed online that they would be breaching celebrities’ cell phones and social media accounts and posting their findings online.

This week, they appear to have made good on their promise, exposing racy cell-phone photographs of Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, along with private photos and text messages of some 50 other celebrities.

Today, Johansson asked the FBI to investigate how the nude photos, which she took of herself, appeared online.

The hackers also exposed photos of Justin Timberlake, one of which apparently shows him wearing a pair of pink panties on his head. The photos reportedly were taken from Kunis’s phone, according to TMZ.

Other celebrities who had their accounts or phones hacked were Christina Aguilera, Jessica Alba, Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Ali Larter, Selena Gomez, and Demi Lovato.

While the FBI investigates the leaks, it remains unclear how the hackers were able to breach the celebrities’ private networks. Since the breaches affected so many celebrities, it is likely that a hacker gained access to an internal network where passwords were kept in unencrypted format or where the hacker could reset the passwords as an administrator.

The hackers gave their reasoning for exposing the photos in the YouTube video:

“Attention Hollywood. We are Anonymous. We have been watching you. We have been listening to you. You have been allowed to run free too long. The time of Jew-controlled media is over. We are taking back the media with your {word redacted} vampires and Scientology pastors. We are here for the people. We are here for the Lulz. We are here to stay. We have your lives. We have your blood, sweat and tears. Over the next couple of weeks, everyone will have them. We will rock you for ages. Consider this our acceptance speech for the Video Music Awards.”
