The former owner of a “revenge porn” website has been threatened by hacktivist collective Anonymous.

Hunter Moore used to post sexual images of men and women without their permission, along with links to their social networking profiles.

Mr Moore said he will launch a new site soon, telling one technology blog he would also post home addresses.

He later said he was “misquoted”, but Anonymous has said he must be held “accountable for his actions”.

“We will protect anyone who is victimised by abuse of our internet, we will prevent the stalking, rape, and possible murders as by-product of his sites,” the group said in a media release.

It added: “Operation anti-bully. Operation hunt Hunter engaged. We are Anonymous, we are legion, we do not forgive, we do not forget, Hunter Moore, expect us.”

IsAnyoneUp

Mr Moore sold his old website, IsAnyoneUp.com, to an anti-bullying charity in April this year.

Until that point it had gained notoriety for publishing pornographic pictures of men and women from all over the world, sent in by disgruntled ex-boyfriends and girlfriends.

So-called “revenge porn” is common online, but Mr Moore’s site angered anti-bullying campaigners further due to the inclusion of links to social networking sites – leaving victims open to large levels of abuse.

People who had made requests for the photographs to be removed were often ridiculed further, and the huge majority of legal threats against Mr Moore were ignored.

“I sold it because I hated what the media turned it into and it could never be what I wanted it to be,” Mr Moore has said about the closed site, which reportedly made him about $20,000 (£12,400; 15,335 euros) a month from advertising revenue.

Speaking about his new venture, which has not yet launched, he said: “This time I am doing it right. I am creating something that will question if you ever want to have kids.

“I am making something very scary but yet fun.”

Suicide

Mr Moore told technology blog Betabeat that the new site would “introduce the mapping stuff so you can stalk people”, but in a subsequent interview with Salon magazine he took back the comment, stating that he made it while “drunk”.

Regardless of his intentions, Anonymous published details about Mr Moore online, including the names of family members and his home address.

The group posted a video about their actions to Vimeo. In it, they showed pictures of Amanda Todd – a girl who committed suicide after topless photographs of her were circulated on the internet.

Prior to her death, 15-year-old Miss Todd created a YouTube video describing how she was bullied.

Mr Moore, who has said his new site has had thousands of submissions, has in the past said he holds no guilt over what he does.

“It’s anonymous to me. I don’t know the people – it’s just a little picture on a screen,” he told the BBC in an interview in April.

“If you’re just crying over some [picture] you sent to some boy you just met, no I’m not going to take it down, and no I don’t really care.”

May 22, 2012

The FBI is investigating the founder of a “revenge porn” website, where scorned lovers were posting nude photos and videos of their ex-partners anonymously online.

Officials would only confirm to “Nightline” that there was an investigation, but declined to comment further on any other details.

Watch the full story on “Nightline” TONIGHT at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT

Hunter Moore, 26, used to run a website called IsAnyoneUp.com, which he told “Nightline” he had launched as a place for “public humiliation.” On the site, users could upload sexually explicit photos and videos without a victim’s permission, and include screen grabs of Facebook accounts and links to Twitter accounts. A section on the website also allowed people to comment on the photos and videos.

The site became so popular that Moore said he was getting nearly 5 million hits a month. But in April, Moore sold his website for less than $15,000 to BullyVille.com, a social website on which people can share stories about being bullied and seek help. IsAnyoneUp.com was taken down.

But before the website was shut down, Kayla Laws, a 25-year-old aspiring actress, said nude photos of herself that she took, but never distributed, surfaced on IsAnyoneUp.com. Laws claims her computer was hacked.

“To be seen on that website is like, breaks my heart inside,” she said. “It ruins everything I’ve built up for myself. It’s embarrassing to know that they’ve seen that photo of me and they know what I look like topless because of that site.”

Her mother Charlotte Laws, who is a private investigator, said she was outraged and contacted the FBI after Moore refused to take down her daughter’s photos.

“We first asked him, we sent him a cease-and-desist and a take-down notice, and he basically said ‘screw off,’ in so many words,” Charlotte Laws said.

She said she convinced the FBI to launch an investigation into whether Kayle’s computer was hacked.

“The FBI, I’ve been extremely impressed with them,” Charlotte Laws said. “They’re highly competent and extremely responsive.”

Moore denied that he ever hacked anyone’s naked photos.

Before IsAnyoneUp.com was shut down in April, Moore boasted to “Nightline” that he was a self-proclaimed “professional life ruin-er” and he had no scruples about hosting the website because the people on it were simply “characters and avatars and icons on a screen” to him and he wanted to take “full advantage of people’s mistakes.”

Moore also bragged about the multiple cease-and-desist letters and complaints he got from victims’ lawyers, and said his typical response was either to send a dirty picture or a simple “LOL.”

Just as YouTube hosts other people’s videos, IsAnyoneUp.com fell into the same category — the person submitting the picture accepts full responsibility for uploading it.

“Your only remedy is against the person who took the picture and posted it,” said Bruce Johnson, an attorney in Seattle who specializes in First Amendment and media cases. “There’s no real remedy against the website that’s posting that photo. The best advice is not to disseminate the picture to begin with.”

When BullyVille.com bought Moore’s site and shut it down — IsAnyoneUp.com’s URL now re-directs to BullyVille.com — it seemed that Moore had changed his tune. The site hosted a letter from him filled with words that sounded nothing like the rebel “Nightline” had previously interviewed.

“I think it’s important that everyone realizes the damage that online bullying can cause,” Moore wrote.
