Cybercrime Review 2013: Karen 'Gary' Kazaryan - The Hacker Who Allegedly Blackmailed 350 Women With 3,000 Nude Photos Over Skype And Facebook (SENTENCED TO 5 YEARS)

Karen Kazaryan has been arrested on January 29th 2013, without incident by special agents with the FBI. According to the Bureau, Kazaryan gained unauthorized access to - in other words, hacked into - the victims’ accounts and changed the passwords, which locked victims out of their own online accounts.

Karen Kazaryan does surely not look so "cool" anymore
Once he controlled the accounts, Kazaryan searched e-mails or other files for naked or semi-naked pictures of the victims, as well as other information, such as passwords and the names of their friends.

Using that information, Kazaryan posed online as women, sent instant messages to their friends, and persuaded the friends to remove their clothing so that he could view and take pictures of them.

When the victims discovered that they were not speaking with their friends, Kazaryan often extorted them again, using the photos he had fraudulently obtained to again coerce the victims to remove their clothing on camera.

According to a search warrant executed in 2011 and unsealed today, Kazaryan repeatedly contacted victims to demand that they expose their breasts to him on Skype and used their e-mail and Facebook accounts to make contact with other victims. Kazaryan allegedly posted nude photos of some victims on their Facebook pages when they failed to comply with his demands.

Investigators estimate that Kazaryan victimized more than 350 women, but they have not identified all the victims whose accounts were hacked. Authorities found approximately 3,000 pictures of nude or semi-nude women - some of which were taken from their online accounts, and some of which were taken by Kazaryan on Skype - on Kazaryan’s computer.

Now, on December 9th 2013, Kazaryan has been sentenced to the term in prison after pleading guilty to charges that he hacked email accounts to bait women into giving him even more naked pictures.

Who knows how many times he will have to pick up the piece of Soap in Prisons Shower...?
