The Madonna Album Leak: An Israeli Cybercrime?

A report out of Tel Aviv says that Lahav 433–the Israeli equivalent to the FBI–has arrested a 39 year-old hacker who may have “broken into to the computers of “several major international artists.”

Late last year, Madonna complained to the FBI that she’s been hacked and stole some of her new songs which then appeared online.

No other artists have been named in the case.  More at NBC.
