He then used the accounts he hacked to portray himself as the account holder, contact their friends and gain more access to information, the complaints said.
The data stolen included user login data from a portion of accounts that were created prior to June 11, 2013, on the old Myspace platform."We believe the data breach is attributed to Russian Cyberhacker Peace," Myspace said."This same individual is responsible for other recent criminal attacks, such as those on Linked In and Tumblr, and has claimed on the paid hacker search engine, Leaked Source, that the data is from a past breach." Email addresses, Myspace usernames and Myspace passwords were stolen in the hack.
The woman contacted police later that same day, reporting that a second friend's Facebook account had been hacked by someone trying to get personal information.
The second friend also found photos of herself and other friends on the same sex-oriented website, the complaint said.
The woman told police that she had unwittingly disclosed the information while exchanging messages with the person she thought was her friend.
When investigators questioned the friend, she said that passwords to her Facebook and e-mail accounts had been changed without her knowledge the previous day.
The next day, the woman was able to access her Facebook page.
