In recent weeks, hackers obtained compromising photos from the cell phones of several celebrities, including nude pictures of Johansson.

Dubbed "Operation Hackerazzi," the federal probe dates back a year -- way before the Johansson hacking incident took place, and includes people gaining unlawful entry into computers as well as cell phones, according to law enforcement sources.

UPDATE: Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Florida, was arrested Wednesday morning by FBI agents and accused of targeting individuals in the entertainment industry by hacking into personal e-mail accounts. He faces as many as 121 years in jail if convicted on all counts. Officials said the investigation remains open and others could be implicated.
