Celebrities treat their cellphones like secret diaries. Inside each device is a list of important contacts, text messages and photos that celebrities would rather keep hidden from the public spotlight, but unfortunately that information doesn't always stay hidden. The following celebrities have been the unfortunate victim of the dreaded cell phone hacker.
Vanessa Hudgens at the time was known for her squeaky clean Disney star image, but when an unfortunate cellphone hacker leaked nude and partially nude photos of her that image was marred. Hudgens took what is said to be private photos for her then boyfriend never dreaming that it the photos would ever see the light of day. Guess again!
The nude and partially nude photos, which were taken with a cellphone camera and stored in a Gmail account, were splashed across the Internet and tabloid papers within hours of the leak. Hudgens worked closely with the FBI to uncover the source of the leak but the hacker still remains at large.
Paris Hilton, known for her late night parties and sex tape, had the contents of her cellphone hacked by a mysterious hacker. The hacker broke into Hilton's phone and released the names and numbers of everyone on her contact list. Within minutes of the numbers hitting the Internet people were calling up celebrities from the list, which made a few of Hilton's friends not so happy.
A few cellphone number changes and a new phone later all is right in Paris' world. The hacker, a teenage boy from Massachusetts, was found and brought to justice for the hack job.
