    The operator of a "revenge porn" website who posted stolen nude photos online has agreed to plead guilty, federal prosecutors in Los Angeles say.

    Court papers filed Wednesday show Hunter Moore agreed to plead guilty to charges of hacking and identity theft.

    Moore was dubbed the "most hated man on the Internet" for running a website that posted explicit photos, including some submitted by former lovers and spouses.

    Photos included an "American Idol" finalist, the daughter of a major Republican donor and a woman in a wheelchair.

    The 28-year-old signed court papers saying he had paid Charles Evens to hack computers and steal photos. Evens pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for trial next month.

    Moore faces at least a two-year prison sentence.

    Moore's lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment.
