College Staff 'Hacked Into Laptops To Steal Naked Photos Of Female Students'

College Staff 'Hacked Into Laptops To Steal Naked Photos Of Female Students'

A lawsuit has been filed after female staff and students at a US college had their 'laptops hacked' by tech staff. They claim that 'intimate photos and videos' were accessed without their consent.

The incidents apparently took place at the Academic Computing Center at Hostos Community College. According to a legal document, Natalie Suriel, 21, claimed Carlos Peralta asked her about piercings 'on [her] nipples and down there', however there was no way he could've known about them.

The lawsuit also states that Carlos Peralta and his co-worker Luis Acosta also called Suriel 'sexually freaky'.

Natalie was told by another staff member that the two men (and a further two) had hacked her laptop. The lawsuit states that they broke into the e-mail and social-media accounts of students who hadn't properly logged out, and stole thumb drives with pornography.

According to the New York Post, she also claimed that they downloaded 'certain files depicting intimate encounters ... they also misappropriated private, personal information of other students who left their personal laptops at the Center ... [and] of other female employees who left their personal laptops at the Center.'

She confronted the pair along with their co-workers, Alejandro Cabral and Kirnold Mena, who denied the accusations. However, Mena later admitted that he often accessed female students' computers to 'steal videos and pictures'.

The four men accused were sacked in May last year.

Spokesman for the college, Richard Pietra, said: "The college immediately investigated this matter, referred it to the appropriate authorities and took appropriate action against those involved."
