A former ADT Security Services technician in Texas pleaded guilty Thursday to hacking home security footage so he could watch naked women and couples having sex, prosecutors said.
Telesforo Aviles, 35, admitted he accessed roughly 200 customer accounts more than 9,600 times without their consent over a four and a half year period while he was based in Dallas, according to the US Attorney’s Office Northern District of Texas.
Aviles added his personal email address to customers’ “ADT Pulse” accounts, which gave him real-time access to the video feeds from their homes, prosecutors said.
In some occasions, Aviles claimed he temporarily added himself in the accounts so he could “test” the system, and in other instances, he accessed the customers’ accounts without their knowledge, according to prosecutors.
During the computer fraud scheme, Aviles also admitted he kept tabs on the accounts of attractive women so he could watch videos of them naked, and he also watched couples having sex in their homes, prosecutors said.
Aviles faces up to five years in federal prison.
