Right so a friend of mine had her gmail hacked (re: password guessed), some photos of her when she was underaged stolen and this guy's trying to blackmail her for more. From what she's said he's totally incompetent and covered his tracks really poorly (or a genius laying down loads of false leads but I doubt it), is there any advice I can give her besides go to the police?

Gmail has incredibly sophisticated login security these days, if you try to log in from an unknown device or unknown location you generally have to receive a confirmation text message to log in.

If the "hacker" 1) "guessed" her password and 2) bypassed the location checks then it's very likely going to turn out to be either A) someone very close to her and potentially someone who lives with her or B) someone who has actually hacked her laptop / computer / whatever.

Going to the police is tricky as your friend would be (as I read it) admitting to producing and distributing sexual images of a child. On the other hand if you tell the police the photos were taken after she was 18 then you're much less likely to get access to the specialized departments who actually know more than the average dibble about computers.

Sage for rambling.

I don't think the police or CPS are inclined to care if the images are of yourself. Have you ever heard of someone prosecuted for that?

You live in cloud cuckoo land, mate. In the states prosecuting kids for their own nude selfies is endemic, but yes it's a crime here in the UK too and yes the police do care: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-3413638.

She didn't have 2-factor set up on gmail, just on Apple ID which he failed to get into and gave his location as a New York based VPN service.
This is most of the information so far https://imgur.com/a/O0ppj

This is worrying me too. Fucking stupid law in this context.

> She didn't have 2-factor set up on gmail

I'm not talking about two-factor auth per se (which implies you receive a confirmation code by text every time you log in) but rather a security feature that won't let you in from an unknown location without verifying yourself either via recovery email or SMS.

If the lass in question didn't have a recovery email address or phone number associated with the account then she made the account forever ago and also she's a silly sausage. The fact that her password was "guessable" is also worrying.

Wow, she's a very clever girl to have strung him along for that long.

She did make the account forever ago and she's confirmed the password was awful. I've talked her through setting up better security, but as >>25939 notes she's not completely stupid and had done that even before I spoke to her.

I just noticed the images uploaded in a weird order despite having been sequentially numbered filenames. That must be confusing, sorry.
