Yesterday, Gizmodo announced that the perpetrator of these hacks is a man named Tony Cunha, known online as “iThug.” He is allegedly responsible for the Paris Hilton phone hack from 2005 (source 2) and was known for hacking MySpace profiles. He’s also a Boston-area DJ.
On the 18th, prolific tweeter @lilinternet (who is known for coining the term Seapunk) claimed iThug had gotten the BK twitter account.

Gizmodo recieved a tip linking to Cunha’s personal facebook, where he bragged about shouting out to a Twitter friend via the BK account. His facebook has since been deleted.
The Daily Dot also has a roundup of this information about iThug. What else can we find?
