Christopher Chaney, a 35-year-old Florida perv, was the man been arrested in Operation Hackerazzi, the alleged widespread celebrity cellphone hacking scandal.

His actions recently resulted in pics of Scarlett Johansson nude ending up on the Internet, shining new light on a federal investigation already underway.

Chaney was arrested on Wednesday and charged with 26 counts of computer hacking, aggravated identity theft and wiretapping. Maximum penalty? 121 YEARS.

Officials say Chaney hacked into personal e-mail accounts of dozens of people in the entertainment industry, such as Johannson, Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis.

"This [arrest] comes as a relief to the victims, many of whom suffered great distress," said Steven Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI's L.A. field office.

Chaney allegedly obtained victims' passwords and set their e-mail accounts to forward to him, even in the event the users reset their passwords, the charges state.

This allegedly gave him access to myriad financial information, movie scripts, celebrity photos and private e-mails, as well as to contact lists to find other victims.

Hollywood starlets with iPhones and Blackberrys, you may breathe a sigh of relief.

After more than a year of investigating, and just a few weeks after Scarlett Johansson nude photos were leaked and became the latest celebrity scandal tied to a major hacking ring, federal officials have finally made an arrest in the case.

That's right, Operation Hackerazzi (the FBI's name for it) got its man.

You can kiss those Scarlett Johansson nude pics goodbye! Hooray/darn!

The FBI has not released any information aside from the fact that an arrest was made. More details are expected to be released at a press conference in L.A. shortly.

The investigation into the phone-hacking ring plaguing hot young Hollywood began in 2010, as suspicions first surfaced that starlets' phones were compromised.

Naturally, those phones included personal and inevitably X-rated photos, texts and emails ... resulting in a whole lot of scandals and criminal charges for some perv.

Vanessa Hudgens was also a frequent victim of the scandal, as was Mila Kunis.

Christina Aguilera, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Ali Larter, Busy Philipps, Emma Caulfield and Addison Timlin were among others tied to the case.

It's unclear if the leaked Blake Lively pics from this spring were also related.

It may be the fantasy of warm-blooded males around the globe, but for Scarlett Johansson, it's a nightmare: naked photos of the actress have leaked online, as the FBI is actively involved in what's become an ongoing celebrity hacking scandal.

Yesterday, in an interview with CNN, the gorgeous actress spoke on the mess and the rights she still believes she possesses, despite her fame:

Stepping out amid a recent nude photo hacking scandal, Scarlett Johansson showed off her famous curves - and a new hairstyle - at Milan Fashion Week.

She wore Dolce & Gabbana at the Italian label's presentation, appropriately, and turned heads every step of the way. She is simply stunning, no?

In keeping with the old Hollywood glamour look, the 26-year-old wore bold red lipstick and styled her hairstyle as a bob with structured waves:

The We Brought a Zoo star was seated front row at the show. Take a look at photos of her at the event and tell us if you like ScarJo's hair below!

What do you think of Scarlett's new hairstyle?

Sorry, Bradley Cooper. If you were gonna woo ScarJo, you may be too late.

Was there some love in the air, or was it just two old friends reconnecting when Scarlett Johansson and Kieran Culkin spent time in the City of Love last week?

Who knows, but that's the rumor of the day - that they've coupled up!

They were seen together again the following day – this time at the airport, hopping a flight back to the U.S. - but does that mean there's a romance brewing?

People also reports that, before their departure, Johansson (who was photographed with two dancers) and Culkin visited the erotic burlesque venue, Crazy Horse.

Then again, they really are old, good friends who attended the same high school – the Professional Children's School – in NYC, where Culkin was two years older.

Think they're a couple? Has he seen the hacked photos? Who knows!

Has Bradley Cooper added another starlet to his recent string of hookups?

Probably not, but Life & Style "exclusively" reports that he cozied up to Scarlett Johansson at NYC hot spot Provocateur recently. The duo were hand in hand and "more than flirty" by the end of the night, according to sources!

The VIP couple tried to maintain a low profile, but that's a tall order.

  • Brad Cooper Image

Scarlett's rep says the two are "just friends and have been for years," but others say it seems Bradley has his eye on his He's Just Not That Into You co-star.

Of course, he's also been linked to Olivia Wilde recently, and just last week, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lopez totally went on a date. So ... there you go.

Bottom line: Don't read too much into reports such as this. Unlike the guy that hacked her phone, it's unlikely that Bradley has seen Scarlett Johansson nude.

Unless he trolls spammy gossip sites, which we doubt.

The same hornball hacker(s) may be behind the Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis photo scandals that surfaced almost simultaneously, reports say.

The FBI is on the hunt for whomever leaked photos of the two actresses online, with one source suggesting the bureau has the culprit in the crosshairs.

Scarlett Johansson nude pics - topless and rear shots, presumably taken by herself - surfaced yesterday, prompting the star to contact authorities.

  • Mila Pic

Her attorney is also going hard after sites posting the images - one featuring ScarJo's bare breasts and another showcasing the actress' backside.

Sorry guys for getting you thinking there, but we don't have 'em here.

Law enforcement sources say the FBI is "honing in" on the group of hackers and know the identity of at least one of them - possibly the ringleader.

Sources say the hackers have also done this to Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Lindsey Vonn, Ali Larter, Emma Caulfield and possibly Mila Kunis.

Kunis' phone was hacked this week, possibly revealing a friends with benefits (sorry) relationship with Justin Timberlake thanks to "seductive" pics.

Mila's also in the bathtub in one pic. Sorry again guys. Not here.

Scarlett Johansson's lawyer is on the offensive following the nude photo hack job that sent images of the actress sprawling across the Internet yesterday.

Marty Singer is warning celebrity gossip websites in no uncertain terms that Scarlett owns the copyright to the images and to take them down. Or else.

Various sites, most notably and not surprisingly TheDirty (dot) com, have been ordered to remove the "stolen copyright protected private photographs."

The actress' camp contacted the FBI over the hacking and officials are investigating. It's unclear who was behind it and what consequences they may face.

Singer claims, "The highly personal and private photographs at issue capture our client self-posing in her own home in a state of undress and/or topless."

Just to make sure he's perfectly clear, Singer concludes: "If you fail to comply, you will be acting at your own peril. Please govern yourselves accordingly."

TheDirty says it will take down the Scarlett Johansson photos, which you will not find here at THG. However, enjoy the classic Vanity Fair cover above!

Keira Knightley's on it, too. Could be worse, right?

Scarlett Johansson is the latest celebrity to allegedly be targeted by a hacker with great taste in women.

The actress reportedly contacted the FBI this morning because nude photos she took of herself on her cell phone were stolen and leaked online. We'd love to publish them here, but we'd also love to not get sued.

Over the past few months, federal agents have taken action in other famous nude photo hacking situations, most notably scandals that involved Vanessa Hudgens and Jessica Alba.

UPDATE, 10/13: Christopher Chaney has been arrested by the FBI for his involvement in the scandal. Follow the link for the full report ...

Scarlett Johansson is really sorry. She'd love to attend the Marine Corps Ball with Sergeant Dustin L. Williams, but the actress has been forced to turn down the officer's invitation this week.

"I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams," Johansson said in a statement. "Not only does Sgt. Williams deserve recognition for his bravery, selflessness and dedication to the United States and its people, but he also displays a cheeky talent for film making."

Adds the beauty:

"Sgt. Williams, unfortunately due to prior commitments I will not be able to attend the Ball with you this year but I am sending you a case of Moet and Chandon with gratitude. In my absence, I raise a glass to you and all the men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps, past and present, in thanks for your continued commitment to preserving the safety of our nation."

Tough break, Dustin. But allow us to recommend Olivia Wilde. She's looking for a man who doesn't text.
