Joshua Duclos2014-11-15 00:00:00 UTC

According to court records, Duclos admitted to the crime when police arrived at his home Nov. 14 with a warrant to search and seize his electronic devices. He told police that he had hacked LaBonte’s email account two years ago by guessing her security question and resetting her password. He downloaded several nude photographs of her from the account, and also used it to reset the password for her account on ModelMayhem.com, a networking website for models and photographers. LaBonte quickly reset the password on her email account, but Duclos set up two new accounts posing as LaBonte, according to court records. In emails and ModelMayhem messages, he contacted women and told them they would be great for a nude modeling job that would pay $100 an hour, and they just had to send some nude shots back “for assessment purposes.” According to court records, Duclos also sent nude photos of LaBonte to the women, saying it was to make them feel “more comfortable” sending photos back, and as examples of the kind of photographs that would be taken for the job.

Stefan Rigo2014-11-01 00:00:00 UTC

Rigo used his ex-girlfriend’s details to pay for and download the Blackshades malware, a tool which gives the user complete control over target computers, wherever they are in the world. The software can turn victims’ webcams on and off, access banking or other personal information, download new and potentially illegal content, and instruct the victim’s computer to help commit acts of criminality such as Distributed Denial of Service DDoS attacks. A forensic examination of Rigo’s computer equipment found a series of images that involved people engaged in sexual acts over Skype or in front of their computers. Under interview Rigo admitted using functions of Blackshades that enabled him to control others’ webcams and monitor their desktops, enabling him to obtain passwords and email content.
