FBI arrested man responsible in hacking the computer of miss teen USA


Mid August this year, the crowned miss teen USA 2013 Cassidy Wolf reported to authorities she was victimized by a hacker.

Wolf’s computer was made slave and was used to took photos without her knowledge.  The hacker even tried to extort nude pictures from the 19 year-old young lady.

In an investigation by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), it appears there were also several unidentified women victimized by the same hacker.

A certain Jared James Abrahams surrendered to agents of FBI in Orange county, Laura Eimiller – a spokeswoman of FBI said.

Eimiller added that, Abrahams was scheduled to be in federal court in Santa Ana later in the day.

According to complaint records reported by CTVnews, Abrahams used malicious software to disguise his identity in order to capture nude photos or videos of victims through remote operation of cameras on their home computers without their consent.

He allegedly contacted some victims using others’ email accounts he had taken over. Abrahams, the complaint alleges, threatened to make public the images and videos unless they submitted to one of three demands: send nude photos, send a nude video, or log onto Skype and do what he says for five minutes.

Seized from the hacker’s home were computers, hardware, cellphones, and hacking software.
