Here's What Happens If You Hack SELENA GOMEZ' Personal Accounts
An American college student could be sentenced to almost a decade in prison for allegedly hacking Selena Gomez’s personal accounts.
In a report by the Los Angeles Times, 21-year-old Susan Atrach has been accused of accessing the "Back To You" singer's iCloud and Yahoo accounts from June 2015 to February 2016, and shared the obtained media online and to other people.
Atrach was charged with five felony counts of identity theft, five felony counts of accessing and using computer data to commit fraud or to control or obtain money, property or data, and one felony count of accessing and using computer data or taking supporting documentation without permission.
According to unnamed sources, Atrach got hold of the said accounts by answering security questions with Sel's information that were readily available on the internet.
This is not the first time that the former Disney star's account had been compromised. Back in 2017, another hacker took over her Instagram account and shared naked photos of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.
This incident is another reminder for netizens to be careful with sharing their personal information online, and for criminal minds to fear the law.
