(Newser) – Federal officials are investigating the founder of a "revenge porn" website on which spurned spouses and lovers posted naked photos of former partners, according to ABC News. Hunter Moore, 26, admitted to Nightline that he started the site, called IsAnyoneUp.com, which he designed as a place for "public humiliation" where users could upload sexually explicit photos of others without their permission. He boasted he was a "professional life ruiner."

The FBI launched its investigation after at least one victim of his site complained. An aspiring actress said topless photos of her ended up on the site, and she suspects her computer was hacked—an accusation Moore denies. "To be seen on that website breaks my heart inside," she said. Moore sold the site last month for close to $15,000 to BullyVille.com, which shut it down.
