Israeli man arrested in online leak of Madonna songs.

A month after songs from Madonna’s new album “Rebel Heart” leaked to the Internet, foiling carefully timed plans for their release, Israeli police announced the arrest of a suspect.

According to a police statement, a 39-year-old Israeli from Tel Aviv arrested Wednesday is suspected of hacking into international artists’ computers and pilfering unreleased materials, which he sold online. The Madonna break-in was reported four weeks ago, but police said the arrest capped a months-long international investigation that had been under wraps. Cybercrime investigators from an Israeli anticorruption unit called Lahav 443 were joined by FBI investigators and used various technologies to trace the hack. On Wednesday, Israeli police raided the suspect’s Tel Aviv home and seized computers and media said to include materials stolen from various artists, including Madonna.

A public defender representing the suspect said her client denies the charges and says he doesn’t have the computer knowledge to have carried out the crimes.
