A man named Bryan Hamade has been accused by online security researchers and Reddit users of being the person who is responsible for leaking a ton of nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence and many other celebrities.
The 27-year-old man accidentally exposed his hard drive and network drive and showed off the leaked picture folder, but he says he is not responsible for this.
‚ÄúI am not behind this. It was so stupid ‚ÄĒ I saw a lot of people posting the actual leaks and bitcoin addresses and I‚Äôve read a lot about bitcoin and how they‚Äôre are valuable and I thought, oh cool I‚Äôll get free bitcoins,‚ÄĚ Bryan told BuzzFeed in an interview on Monday morning.
‚ÄúI 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 ‚ÄĒ it isn‚Äôt remotely true. I am not a hacker. I have no idea how the hell someone could hack into all those accounts,‚ÄĚ he said.
