German hackers busted for breaking into stars' PCs

LIZBETH SALANDER WOULD BE IMPRESSED: Germany authorities have charged two young hackers with breaking into the personal computers of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson and Ke$ha and stealing unreleased songs, which they then sold online, the AP reported. The pair reportedly pocketed more than $13k from sales of the pilfered tracks, which AP said forced the advanced release of several singles. They also tried to blackmail one of the four celebs by threatening to post a "sexually compromising photo,’ said a German prosecutor. The accused hackers, who are 18 and 23, face up to five years in prison and big fines if convicted. (12/6a)
