As you all know, Miley Cyrus’ email was hacked earlier this year by a guy who called himself Trainreq. His real name is Josh Holly, and he lives in Murfreesboro, Tennessee…about 30 miles from Nashville. Snarkista had been following his posts in a forum on digitalgangster.com ; and in the beginning…none of his fellow hackers believed his claims of having compromising images of Miley. Well, he DID, and he released some of them- all taken by Miley herself. They were supposedly ment for(and probably sent to) Nick Jonas. Needless to say, Snarkista broke the story quickly. The hack job was an easy one, according to Josh- Miley used all of the same passwords for her email, Myspace, etc. Josh gave a detailed interview to Wired, where he detailed just how he hacked Miley. You all with Myspace accounts should give it a read, and learn how lame Myspace security is. Brainiac Josh had been bugging Wired to do an interview on him.
At first, he tried to sell the pics to celebrity websites like TMZ. They all turned him down, because of the illegal way he got the shots. So, he posted them on digitalgangster.com…and later did a video interview about the hack. Josh is only 19, and like a lot of boys his age…couldn’t resist BRAGGING about his hack that received international attention. He said he’d never get caught. Just hours before the FBI arrived at his doorstep, Josh posted a message online bragging that even though he was a known hacker, federal agents would never find him. SUCKER!!
According to Josh, the FBI busted up into his apartment yesterday with a search warrant, and seized 3 computers and his cell phone amongst other things. The Feds are staying quiet about the bust, and refused comment to the Murfreesboro Post. FBI spokesman, Agent C.M. Sturgis, said he could not confirm or deny an active, ongoing investigation of Holly. Murfreesboro Police referred calls to the FBI.
Josh made some other claims to Wired, including one that he’d scammed $50,000 by exploiting an advertising scheme on MySpace accounts, but he didn’t want the details published to avoid giving other hackers ideas. Wired was unable to confirm the authenticity of his claim at the time they published yesterday. Josh is begging for some hard time. Maybe he should have a chat with Hulk Hogan’s son Nick!
Dumbass was repeatedly warned by his buds at Digital Gangster to STFU about the hack, and that he was gonna get busted. We’ve known he lived in Murfreesboro for months, and it’s not a real big place. Surprise, surprise, Josh says he’s scared now. Doh! We haven’t heard the last of him, and he’ll probably get a LOT more fame than he bargained for.
