Miley Cyrus Hacker: Arrested!

by at . Comments

Another scandal has broken out around Miley Cyrus. This time, though, the controversial singer is not at the center of it.

A 21-year old named Josh Holly was arrested in Nashville last week and charged with possession of unauthorized credit card numbers. He also admitted to hacking into Miley's email account in 2007.

According court documents, FBI Agent Victor Rodriguez writes that Holly said he broke into Cyrus' MySpace account and obtained photos from her Gmail, posting them on a site frequented by other hackers.

It's unclear to which pictures of Miley this admission refers, but the most recent set of leaked images was clearly snapped a few years ago.

Rodriguez states in the affidavit that Holly told him he often hacked into the email and social networking accounts of celebrities to help with his job sending spam for commercial companies. This job paid the loser $110,000 between November 2007 and July 2008.

"He confirmed that he was the person who had obtained data from Miley Cyrus' MySpace without authorization," Rodriguez writes. "He often used accounts belonging to celebrities because of the high volume of Internet traffic they attracted."

This spammer is due in court for a January 12 hearing to deal with the aforementioned credit card allegations. Authorities have not yet decided whether or not to tack on charges against him for these online hacks.
