A Florida man has been charged with hacking into the email accounts of Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson and dozens of other celebrities to steal photos, emails and other documents. Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville was nabbed following an 11-month police investigation dubbed “Operation Hackerazzi,” according to an FBI statement this week. Once he had access to a victim's email account, which he obtained by using publicly available information, he allegedly changed the settings so that all of their emails would be automatically forwarded to him. He also stole private photos, which he offered to celebrity blogs. Chaney was charged with accessing and damaging protected computers without authorization, wiretapping and aggravated identity theft. He faces up to 121 years in prison.
