To gain access to the vast number of celebrity sites, Ethical Spectrum had approached the service provider to secure these very websites for a fee. The company who operates all of these sites, ground(ctrl), denied the offer. As the offer was denied Ethical Spectrum opened up the unsecured websites, and proceeded to defaced them. After the multiple cyber attacks Ethical Spectrum left on celebrity sites, he then proceeded to hack ground(ctrl)‘s official website.  While ground(ctrl)’s official website had been hacked and defaced, hacker left the CEO’s email, along with a picture of the CEO on the homepage.

And to finish off the hacking, Ethical Spectrum also hacked into Ground(ctrl)’s official business PayPal. The hacker has noted that all websites databases from MileyCyrus.com, SelenaGomez.com, and the many others, are for sale. Containing over 2.5 million credentials of usernames and passwords. As the hacked celebrity website list continuously grows, this could be the biggest celebrity hacking of all time.
