JUDGE BANS “REVENGE PORN” KINGPIN HUNTER MOORE FROM THE INTERNET

The Internet is safe from “revenge porn” kingpin Hunter Moore, at least for a little while.

Moore, who was indicted last month for allegedly conspiring with a hacker to obtain nude photos of over a dozen victims through illicit means, was released on bond last week after at his home in Northern California.

On Monday, a federal judge imposed several conditions on Moore as part of his pretrial release. Among other things, Moore was ordered not to access the Internet and to provide the court “proof of the disconnection or termination of this service.”

Moore was also banned from owning a mobile phone, “which has Internet capabilities,” and was ordered to shut down all personal and professional email and social media accounts, including any accounts he used on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram. Additionally, Moore is not allowed to have “anyone or a third party conduct online business or activity on [his] behalf,” and is only allowed to possess a computer if it is “approved by the pretrial services officer.”

A December grand jury indictment unsealed late last week alleged Moore colluded with associate Charles Evens in a hacking plot involving Moore’s revenge porn website, IsAnyoneUp.com.

Under the scheme, Moore is alleged to have encouraged Evens to steal nude photographs of at least 13 victims by hacking into their email accounts. Evens was then paid over $1,000 for his services, according to court documents.

Both men were accused of trying to hide their actions, first by setting up anonymous PayPal accounts under fictitious names, then by setting up separate email accounts. The scheme is alleged to have taken place between October 2011 and January 2012.

Three months later, Moore unexpectedly sold the domain IsAnyoneUp.com to BullyVille, a website with resources to combat cyberbullying. At the time, Moore wrote that his decision to sell the domain was due to mounting legal bills and the removal of images depicting minors.

The website has spurred legislative action in several states. California lawmakers recently passed a law that makes it a crime to publish a sexually explicit photograph of an individual without their consent, though some say the law doesn’t go far enough.

Moore is expected to be arraigned on felony conspiracy, computer hacking and aggravated identity theft charges in a Los Angeles federal court later this week.
