Singers' computers allegedly hacked by 2 men
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Two German hackers are accused of stealing songs from several music artists.
Investigators said those targeted were Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha and Kelly Clarkson.
A 17-year-old student and a 23-year-old man are accused of using Trojan Horse viruses to hack into the singers' computers for about 12 months.
They were arrested after a Kelly Clarkson fan alerted her management that unreleased songs of the singer were being sold online.
Police said the suspects made more than $13,000 in illegal sales.
