Floridian Christopher Chaney, 35, was arrested in Jacksonville on Wednesday, accused of hacking into the email accounts of dozens of celebrities.

While stars such as Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus were all allegedly victimized, Chaney’s most notorious hack is believed to have led to nude photos of actress Scarlett Johansson being leaked onto the internet last month.

Investigators believe Chaney mined readily-available information about the celebrities to ascertain likely email passwords and security-confirmation answers.

Once he obtained access to the accounts, he simply set them to forward copies of emails sent or received to his own email address.

Chaney has been charged with multiple federal counts of computer hacking, aggravated identity theft, and illegal wiretapping and, if convicted, could face up to 121 years in prison.
