The hacker shouldn’t be receiving the media attention he is. What he did was invade the privacy of people (no matter what status they had), and emotionally abuse them by distributing such images.
The hacker should receive a hefty punishment for his actions, and lawsuits should be filed to ensure that not only the hacker be sorry for what he or she did, but also to prevent other future events like this from occurring by instilling fear and shame in response to what has been done. If people know how wrong it is, and what could happen when they’re caught (and they will be), the chances of it happening again will decrease.
We are all very sorry to all the celebrities who were attacked by this vicious hacker, and we hope that he or she has enough dignity left, and sanity, to not release any more images.
