Shady shady! Guess all that bragging came back to bite him in the ass!
21-year-old Josh Holly was arrested today in Nashville, TN and charged with possession of unauthorized credit card account numbers after FBI agents seized and reviewed his computer - all because he openly bragged about being responsible for hacking into Miley Cyrus' e-mail and Myspace accounts and leaking all of those scandalous pictures of her back in the day!
According to an FBI affidavit filed with the U.S. District Court in Nashville, Agent Victor Rodriguez revealed that Holly's acknowledgement of hacking the pop star's internet accounts gave them cause to seize his equipment!
"Holly made numerous admissions during the interview. He confirmed that he was the person who had obtained data from Miley Cyrus' MySpace account without authorization."
The affidavit explains that Holly, who worked for commercial companies sending spam, had no problem hacking into Cyrus' MySpace in 2007, where he obtained her Gmail password, and then discovered the leaked revealing photos.
According to the affidavit, Holly said in media interviews and Internet postings that he first hacked Cyrus' MySpace account around December 2007. He obtained a password from that account and used it to hack her Gmail account, where he obtained revealing photos of her that were subsequently widely distributed on the Internet.
Rodriguez writes that Holly told him he often hacked into the Internet accounts of celebrities to help with his job sending spam for commercial companies.
You'd think that if you were running around, doing that much illegal shiz, you'd be less prone to brag about it!
Especially when you're dealing with someone as high profile as the MileyBird!
Oh well! Actions have consequences, and his are coming at him full force!
Good luck, bb! You're going to need it!
