itwbennett writes: George Bronk, 23, has pleaded guilty to charges that he broke into the e-mail accounts of thousands of women, scouring them for nude photos that he then posted to the Internet. How he did it: He searched his victims' Facebook pages for answers to common security questions and then logged in to their e-mail accounts.

Bronk faces 6 years in prison on felony hacking, child pornography and identity theft charges.
