    A man has been arrested in Israel on suspicion of hacking Madonna's computer and thus her leaking Rebel Heart album, which immediately sent Her Madgesty into damage control mode. After the security breach, she had to release several songs at the end of 2014, ahead of the intended March 10 release date.

    It was, in two words, a mess. A hot mess, through no fault of Madonna's.

    The suspect has not yet been named publicly.

    A statement was issued by those who caught him, noting that the man "broke into the personal computers of several international artists over the past few months and stole promotional final-cut singles which have yet to be released and traded them online for a fee."

    Ew. That is HORRIBLE and shitty. He intended to profit from his crimes and someone else's art and that is no bueno.

    What should be the punishment for this cyber crime and crime against art?
