After leaked celebrity nudes scandal sent Jennifer Lawrence (and the Internet) into a tailspin last summer, the FBI tracked down the source of the hacking to a Chicago home, The Guardian reports.

Recently unsealed court documents show that FBI agents were able to find nearly 600 hacked data-storage accounts, a number of them belonged to female celebrities, including our beloved JLaw.

The case sheds light on the dangers and fickleness of storing very personal data in the "Cloud," so think twice next time you're sexting with that handsome stranger.
