Hunter Moore, the man who owes every bit of notoriety to peddling revenge porn, has now been arrested and charged for the methods in which he obtained it.

A Grand Jury in California has indicted Moore for, among other things, conspiracy, unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information, and aggravated identity theft.

The indictment names two defendants, Moore and Charles Evens (aka "Gary"), in a pretty basic conspiracy. The document alleges that Evens would hack into the victims email accounts, find nude images, and sell them to Moore. The Grand Jury charges that Moore knew exactly where the images came from and would even "offer defendant Evens additional money to obtain unlawfully additional nude pictures.

The main site named in the indictment is Moore's now-defunct isanyoneup.com. It also names 7 differnet victims, ranging from December 8th, 2011 to January 29th, 2012.

Here's Moore's last tweet, made earlier today:

In recent months, we've seen a bit of a crackdown on "revenge porn" - the latest example coming from California, where Governor Jerry Brown recently signed SB 255. The law, which ultimately bans revenge porn, makes it illegal to “electronically distribute nude images of another person with the intent to cause serious emotional distress.”

Moore has been called one of, if not the, most-hated man on the internet. You can be assured that there are plenty of people celebrating this news.
