Angie Varona, now 18, was just 14-years-old when she uploaded some provocative photos of herself wearing lingerie and bikinis -- no nude pictures, she said -- to an image-sharing website in 2007. It was decision that she said has ruined her life.
Angie Varona is one of the most recognized young sex symbols on the Internet, not because she is an aspiring model, or even asking for the attention, but because her private photo account was hacked four years ago.
The 18-year-old said her likeness has shown up on porn sites, humor sites, jailbait.com -- a message board affilith reddit.com where people trade and comment on photos of underage girls -- even on advertisements. There are also numerous unauthorized Facebook profiles, Twitter accounts and YouTube channels, all claiming to be Varona -- one Facebook fan page has more than 41,000 likes.
A recent Google search of "Angie Varona" turned up 608,000 original search items, including 63,000 photos tagged with her name. Many of the photos out there now, Varona said, are not her originals, but are remakes or women pretending to be her.
"They Photoshopped one of my bikini pictures," she said. "I have the original and everything. They Photoshopped the top off." http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/ang...ry?id=14882768
