Revenge Porn Impresario Hunter Moore Arrested for Hacking

About time.

A federal grand jury has indicted revenge porn magnate/animate turd Hunter Moore and an accomplice, Charles “Gary” Evens, on 15 counts.

27-year-old Moore achieved notoriety as the proprietor of IsAnyoneUp, a digital cesspool that routinely published nude photos without their subjects’ consent. Rolling Stone aptly declared him the “most hated man on the Internet.”

The United States District Court of the Central District of California’s charges against Moore and Evens include conspiracy and aggravated identity theft. The indictment holds that Moore paid Evens to illegally access victims’ e-mail accounts and steal explicit photos for his site.

FBI agents arrested Moore this afternoon, and both men will appear in court on Tuesday. This is a victory for victims of revenge porn, who often have little legal recourse in fighting to have private explicit images (typically posted by former lovers) removed from the Web.
