A defunct website that hosts "revenge porn" is coming back from the dead, and this time it will tell users exactly where to find its accidental porn stars.

Hunter Moore, 26, rose to fame with his site IsAnyoneUp.com, where people could submit naked pictures or sex tapes of their exes for users to publicly scrutinize.

It shut down in April when an anti-bullying group bought the domain.

Now Moore's reviving it at a new address. This time, people will be able to submit their victims' addresses, which Moore plans to map.

"We're gonna introduce the mapping stuff so you can stalk people," Moore told Betabeat."I know, it's scary as sh--."

Moore believes Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which says websites aren't responsible for user-submitted content, will protect him.

University of Maryland law professor Danielle Citron told Betabeat Moore could still face cyberstalking charges.

"Section 230 explicitly does not immunize federal criminal law violations," she said.
