Webmaster Hunter Moore is a 36-year-old convicted criminal from California.
It was Rolling Stone who branded him “the most hated man on the internet” after he created his revenge porn site.
The website was active for 16 months and during this time, Moore paid a hacker to obtain private information, including images, from victims.
The FBI launched an investigation in 2012 after receiving evidence from the mother of one of the victims.
The site was shut down in April of that year and in 2015, Moore admitted felony charges of aggravated identity theft and aiding and abetting the unauthorized access of a computer.

Since then, Moore has kept out of the spotlight and does not appear to have any social media accounts.
As for his revenge porn site, it was sold to entrepreneur James McGibney and it is now an anti-bullying website.
In the trailer for the series, one of the victims is heard saying: “You wake up, you look at your phone, two hundred notifications.”
Another victim adds: “There I was, topless, multiple photos.”

In an open letter to Moore after acquiring the site, McGibney said: “Your main stated objective was to ‘ruin’ young girls’ lives.
“Even after they indicated that they were going to [take their own lives] if their unauthorized naked images weren’t removed from your website, you laughed in their faces.
“Are you still laughing now? You tried to destroy their lives, but instead, I intellectually destroyed yours.
“You received a masterclass in the fine art of social engineering.”
The Most Hated Man on the Internet is on Netflix now.
