Arrested last October, authorities dubbed the hacking endeavor as Operation Hackerazzi; which was the exposure of many celebrity private lives such as: Simone Harouche, Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera, Renee Olstead and many more including minor children.
Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Fla., who pleaded guilty in Los Angeles federal court to nine counts of computer hacking, for two years hacked almost daily into email accounts of 50 people in the entertainment industry.
[Chaney] should pay movie star Scarlett Johansson $66,179.46 in compensation, federal prosecutors said.
Prosecutors want Chaney to compensate some of his victims. In addition to Johansson, they are asking a judge to order him to pay $7,500 to Aguilera; $76,767.35 to Olstead, an actress best known for the TV show “The Secret Life of American Teenager,” and $10,374.59 to Aftra Health Fund.
Email Hacking: On September 14, 2011, the FBI announced it was investigating the alleged hacking of Johansson's cell phone and the dissemination of nude photographs. In the December 2011 issue of Vanity Fair, Johansson stated that the photos were sent to her then-husband Ryan Reynolds three years prior to the incident, adding: "There's nothing wrong with that. It's not like I was shooting a porno [...] Although there's nothing wrong with that either." She later also expressed that the photo leak "was really terrible; I felt absolutely violated. I wasn't really aware of how vulnerable all of us are, but I think everybody is just discovering that now..."
