Miley Cyrus Hacker Arrested

The man who gloated about hacking Miley Cyrus’ email account and circulating revealing pictures of the then-underage actress has been arrested on unrelated charges in Nashville.

According to a PopEater report, Josh Holly, 21, was arrested in Nashville last week on unrelated charges of possession of unauthorized credit card account numbers. FBI agents reportedly searched Holly’s computer for evidence, prompting him to admit he was behind the hacking of Miley’s personal accounts in 2007.

“Holly made numerous admissions during the interview,” agents wrote in an affidavit. “He confirmed that he was the person who had obtained data from Miley Cyrus’ MySpace account without authorization.”

Holly was released from custody on Monday and is slated to appear at a preliminary hearing on Jan. 12.
