Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, And Others Hit By Hackers

 Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, And Others Hit By Hackers

Police are investigating two men – 17 & 23 – for hacking into the computers of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha, and Kelly Clarkson and stealing music they were working on! The hackers, from Germany, were “plugged in” to the musicians’ computers for as long as TWELVE MONTHS before they were discovered. They reportedly got access by sending a Trojan to the official email accounts of the celebs, their record companies, and management.

The men reportedly made about $13,000 from selling the hacked songs – and many times the leaks forced the artists to release the music early. One of the men said:
“I’m a fan and I just wanted to have cool music,” he was quoted by the newspaper as saying. “I’m no blackmailer.”
What fan would dream of doing something so malicious? I can’t even imagine! Have you had any issues with hackers on your system?
