(Newser) – Think you’ve been extremely careful with your secret sex tape? Well, don’t get too cocky, writes Tracy Clark-Flory of Salon. On Tuesday the FBI arrested 31-year-old Luis Mijangos, accusing him of hacking into more than 100 computers via malware disguised as popular songs, and searching them for amateur porn. Then he allegedly contacted their owners, and promised to release the naughty videos if they didn’t make more.

If the victims didn’t already have a sex tape stored away, he’d sometimes hack into their boyfriends’ email accounts, and then send a message begging them to send along the goods. For other victims, he'd allegedly spy on them through their webcams. And if all that weren't gross enough, 44 of the victims were minors.

Soooo, in a case like this, do the authorities notify the parents that their kids are making porn?
