A Celebgate hacker was recently sentenced to 34 months in prison after pleading guilty (via Justice.gov).
Celebgate, also referred to as “The Fappening” was a scandal in 2014 where hundreds of nude photos of various celebrities were shared on the internet. At first it was thought to have been caused by a data breach of iCloud. Later we learned the photos were obtained through phishing.
One Celebgate hacker, a former high school teacher named Christopher Brennan, was sentenced today to almost three years in prison. The maximum penalty was seven years, but Mr. Brennan made a plea agreement and the judge agreed to lower the sentence.
