The leak of pictures and, allegedly, videos of Jennifer Lawrence by an unknown hacker has security experts — and Apple — puzzled. Though the hacker has posted a list of scores of female celebrities to a chatroom claiming to have more pictures of them, a number of those named have come forward to say that photos claimed to be of them are faked, while others claim they were deleted. With any hack, the principal questions are: what was the avenue of attack? And where were the photos and videos — if they were real — downloaded from? Large companies like Apple have dedicated in-house security teams who attempt to break into their own systems regularly. The company had no statement at the time of publication. Alternatively, the stars used the same password on multiple services, which were captured through that. In a tweet , Winstead suggested a longstanding effort by the hacker.
Is Photo Stream uploading all your photos to iCloud?
I gather many internets were given away yesterday at 4chan. You might try there, some people might still have some. It would be a better idea to just not download them. Oh, who am I kidding, nobody cares about privacy while they're holding their dick in their hand. There are millions of photos of naked women out there that can be viewed wiithout violating anyone's privacy.
Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Ariana Grande are among the high-profile celebrities who apparently fell victim to a massive alleged iCloud hack late Sunday night, when someone exposed collections of nude photos that they had purportedly saved on their Apple devices. What iPhone owners might not realize is that they may have already told Apple to back up all of your photos on its iCloud servers. It's easy enough to enable the "My Photo Stream" feature — then forget that it's running in the background, uploading every picture you take. If hackers gain access to your iCloud account, they could easily download all your photos without ever laying hands on your iPhone or iPad.
Company's online storage service said to be source of a large cache of private nude celebrity images. Apple said Monday it is "actively investigating" whether a security breach at its iCloud service was responsible for the leak of several private, nude images of celebrities, including actress Jennifer Lawrence. CNET has contacted Apple for comment and will update this report when we learn more. A large cache of risque images - some said to be real, others fake -- first appeared Sunday on the image-based bulletin board 4chan.
