Miley Cyrus’s email got hacked a few months back, and now we know why. While you would think that high profile celebrities would be smart enough to add extra security to their emails, it turns out they are in fact the easiest to hack.
The infamous hacker who got into a string of celebrities’ accounts reveals the details of how exactly he got into Miley’s Gmail. It turns out, it was really quite easy:
The man says he simply went to Miley’s Gmail and tried accessing it. The prompt asked a security question, the name of one of her girlfriends. He guessed the one she’s known the longest, based on a Google search — and he scored.
The hacker states “When I saw that, I couldn’t believe it.”
