Israeli Arrested in Madonna Demo Leak Case.

Israeli police arrested a man Wednesday who they suspect hacked into Madonna’s computer late last year and leaked demo versions of songs from her upcoming Rebel Heart album.TEL AVIV — An alleged computer hacker has been arrested in Israel on suspicion of breaking into the computers of “several international artists” and leaking their music online, police told NBC News on Wednesday. A month-long investigation from the cybercrime wing of Israel’s Lahav 433, an FBI-like organization, led authorities to arrest a 39-year-old, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 39-year-old suspect’s arrest came after a complex undercover investigation by Israel’s cybercrime unit and the FBI, according to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

Police put a gag order on the alleged hacker’s name, though local media in Israel have begun identifying the man as a former reality show contest from one of Israel’s singing competition programs. Similarly, Björk announced Tuesday that she would suddenly release her new album, Vulnicura, on iTunes after the record leaked over the weekend, two months ahead of schedule. Tel Aviv-based investigations firm Wizman Yaar Investigations released a statement saying it began looking into the case after receiving a complaint from Oseary’s office.
