Users of Reddit, the world’s most reliable web community (and if you believe that I have an awesome real estate investment for you) have pointed the finger at a Lawrenceville man named Bryan Hamade as the source of all those nude images stolen from the iCloud accounts of very famous people like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton.

“I am not behind this,” Hamade told BuzzFeed in a story published Monday. “It was so stupid — I saw a lot of people posting the actual leaks and bitcoin addresses and I’ve read a lot about bitcoin and how they are valuable and I thought, oh cool I’ll get free bitcoins.”

#Hamade told the publication that he tried to sell images, which had already been leaked.

#“I am just an idiot who tried to pull one over on 4chan and lost big time and stupidly left this identifying information. They took my proof and back traced it — it isn’t remotely true. I am not a hacker. I have no idea how the hell someone could hack into all those accounts.”

Yeah us!

This has not been a good week for Georgia-centric stories on the internets.

Just another Georgian who thought he could take advantage of stupid people. If he is as ignorant as he portrays himself however I wouldn’t trust him to run my servers. He could find that this approach works for politicians though.

Buzz, if he was responsible (not assuming he is necessarily) would Georgia’s Intimate Harassment Bill apply to him in this situation, as potential criminal recourse, since he transmitted those photos online? New law, wasn’t sure.

Hacking private photos is sad and pasting head-shots on nude bodies is sadder. 4chan hackers should instead target super-PACs and send their donor info to everyone.
