Hacker steals Facebook photos to post on porn sites

Pin it

From the scumbag files: twenty-six-year-old Timothy Noirjean, of Woodbury, Minnesota, was charged with identity theft after allegedly hacking into women's Facebook accounts, in February and March of 2010, in order to steal photos which he subsequently posted on porn sites. He apparently pilfered photos of thirteen women ranging in age from seventeen to twenty-five, and police also discovered over 200 other women's email addresses and security information, along with additional folders containing women's names and pictures. Unfortunately, authorities said they're unable to remove the stolen images from the various sites.

Prosecutors say that Noirjean would befriend women online and fool them into providing personal information that he could then use to hack their Facebook, email and other accounts. He would then in turn pretend to be the owner and gain access to the accounts of that person's friends. After police tracked down the pervy perpetrator, they confronted him — where else? — in his parents' basement, where he confessed to the crime, but pretended to be unaware that he was doing anything wrong. The County Attorney said all the pictures posted online were "compromising" in nature. Noirjean is scheduled to appear in court on May 26.
