'Most hated man on the Internet' Hunter Moore is going to prison
A man dubbed "the most hated man on the Internet" is going to prison.
According to Reuters, 28-year-old Hunter Moore, founder of the now-defunct revenge site "Is Anyone Up," pleaded guilty to a number of hacking and identity theft charges in a Los Angeles court Wednesday. The self-proclaimed "professional life ruiner," who the BBC called "the net's most hated man," posted the full names and locations of people whose photos he posted on his adult revenge site.
A number of porn sites that allow jilted former-lovers to send nude photos of their exes have gained the attention of lawmakers, but Moore's operation went even further. Allegedly, he also paid hackers to illegally access hundreds of email accounts in order to obtain nude images and videos.
One of those victims told KMAX Moore stole photos from her Facebook page and merged them with risque images.
"Hunter Moore posted these pictures claiming that it was me," one anonymous victim said. "Your heart drops into your stomach, and you don't know what to do."
Moore is due back in court at a later date for sentencing but faces a maximum of two to seven years in prison.
