Hacker stole unreleased music, then tried framing other, after discovering they were on to him.

U.S authorities charged a Texas man this week for hacking into the cloud accounts of two music companies and the social media account of a high-profile music producer.

Hacker stole unreleased music.

The hacker stole unreleased songs, that he later published online for free on public internet forums.

However,  the man soon realized he could be caught, so he contacted one of the hacked companies and tried to pin the blame on another individual.

According to court documents published on Monday by the Department of Justice, the suspect is a 27-year-old named Christian Erazo, from Austin, Texas.

The U.S authorities say that Erazo worked with three other co-conspirators on a series of hacks, that took place between late 2016 and April 2017.

The group's primary targets were two music management companies, one located in New York, and the second in Los Angeles.

According to investigators, the four hackers obtained and used employee credentials to access the companies' cloud storage accounts, from where they downloaded more than 100 unreleased songs.

Most of the data came from the New York-based music label, from where the Erazo and co-conspirators stole more than 50 GBs of music.

Erazo's indictment claims the group accessed the company's cloud storage account more than 2,300 times across several months.
