Anonymous Hacker Busted By FBI — Thanks To A Racy Photo EXIF info

http://gizmodo.com/5901430/these-breasts-nailed-anonymous-hacker-in-fbi-case

The picture—taken with an iPhone—had GPS information which showed that the photo was taken at the woman's home in Wantirna South. The GPS information was embedded in the photo's EXIF data (EXIF is a set of standard tags that includes information such as location, camera type, and other image information in every photo you take with your smartphone).

If he had been a photographer in addition to being a computer geek maybe he would have known about EXIF.
