Man Blamed for Hacking Jennifer Lawrence Denies the Claims

A man named Bryan Hamade has been targeted by Reddit users and security researchers as being the person 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.

“I am not behind this. It was so stupid – I saw a lot of people posting the actual leaks and bitcoin addresses and I’ve read a lot about bitcoin and how they’re are valuable and I thought, oh cool I’ll get free bitcoins,” Bryan told BuzzFeed in an interview on Monday morning.

“I 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 – it isn’t remotely true. I am not a hacker. I have no idea how the hell someone could hack into all those accounts,” he said.
