Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha and Kelly Clarkson - hackers steal their songs

Two young German man, 18 and 23, have been accused of hacking computers to steal songs from superstars Gaga, Timberlake, Ke$sha, and Clarkson.

How did they do it?  Well for starters, both men live at home with their parents.  They allegedly installed a Trojan Horse into MP3 files and sent them to each of the stars' official offices.  Once their file was opened on the computers on the stars' networks, it allowed them to steal the songs and sell them.

The investigation is ongoing.
