Remember how [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Miley Cyrus[/lastfm]‘ e-mail account was hacked and racy photos of her surfaced?

According to a new report from PC World, a 21-year-old named Josh Holly has admitted to the crime and has been arrested by the FBI, but no charges have been filed yet.

FBI agents reportedly took Holly into custody at his home in Nashville and found several stolen credit card numbers on his computer hard drive. Holly tipped authorities off after claiming responsibility for the incident in several national interviews.

While speaking with Wired Magazine, Holly says he gained access to Cyrus’ password after tricking a MySpace employee into giving him access to their administrative panel. From that point he found the password, which she was also using for her e-mail account.

Various reports claim that Holly has been released from custody and does not face any charges at this time.
