Apple iCloud hacker releases more nude pictures of celebrities

Apple iCloud hacker releases more nude pictures of celebrities
Just when all of those celebrities thought that the worst of the recent iCloud hacking scandal was over, a new batch of naughty pictures were uploaded to 4Chan and Reddit this weekend, where they were quickly removed. Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, who seemed to become the poster girl for the original batch of photos, was said to be included in the new group of pictures.

Other names mentioned included Kayne West's better half, Kim Kardashian, and Disney star Vanessa Hudgens. Television star Kaley Cuoco of the Big Bang Theory was also the subject of at least one of the pictures, according to reports. The FBI is already investigating the first set of leaked photos. Model Joy Corrigan has announced that she is going to sue Apple after her iCloud account was allegedly hacked twice. Apple apparently told her that she was a victim of phishing and that this was not Apple's fault.

The first set of hacked photos came to light at the beginning of the month and some believe that a brute force attack resulted in the eventual discovery of the passwords employed by celebrities for their iCloud accounts. Apple has made some changes, and now alerts users when their iCloud account is accessed by a new device, or when there is an attempt made to change the password on such an account. More changes are expected from the tech titan.

Nude photos of Lawrence were purportedly released again, even though earlier this month representatives for the star threatened to prosecute anyone who leaked pictures of her in the future. All of the victims of the latest release are said to be celebrities included in a list of 101 people sent to 4Chan immediately after the first set of photos was disseminated. This list contains names of the rich and famous, whose pictures and videos the hacker says he has in his possession.

To be fair, there's nothing Apple can do since the celeb's photos were already taken They are making good improvements, which they should have already had in place, which could of prevented this Also some of these photos are really old, e.g. Kim's were taken with her BlackBerry But some of the others look pretty recent, e.g. those Disney actresses, also are they under age??

If there's anything positive about this whole mess is that I expect that idiot to open his mouth at one point. Oh Kayne, always worth a good laugh.

They don't care about you kid because you are not popular. And from your comments I can tell you that you are not fully grown up either.

I understand that? It's not Apple responsible those photos how they get hacked. It's the person fault and not Apple iCloud.

Of course its apple's. If a bank who holds high end vault (like in fast five) I stolen by normal thief is the fault of person or the banks security??? It is definitely Apple's security problem they should take immediate action to stop these kind of acts.

If you read the actual article you'd know that it was a phishing scam; that means that the celebs were tricked into giving out the details to access the icloud accounts; that means that there's nothing Apple could do to prevent it. If you give someone your bank/credit card and pin code, that's what the banks call "extreme neglect", and YOU are responsible for anything that gets stolen from your accounts -- it's your own responsibility to protect your card/pin, not the bank. Check the terms of use for your card. It's not that bank's fault if you give someone access to your account, just like it's not Apple's responsibility to keep people out of your iCloud if you give them access to that too.

Are you high?!?! Of course its Apple's responsibility to safeguard content. That's like saying its not the banks job to safeguard any of the money you deposit in it. You seriously are the biggest and most blind Apple fan ever. No joke if you feel someone's privacy being violated like this is not the companies fault but the peoples then you seriously are one F***ed up person.

Apple responsibility ends at safe gaurding the servers that hold your content. The servers were not hacked so this is no fault of Apple. To use a bank as an example, if someone has your debit card and pin and takes money out of your account, is it the banks fault? Now if someone breaks into a bank and gets into the safe because sercurity is lacking, then its the banks fault. Apple is the bank and the their server is the vault. The vault was not broken into. Someone having your bank card and pin is the equivalent of someone getting access to your iCloud account. Apple can't stop someone who has all your information and creditials to log on. When it comes to celebrities, most of them have people working for them and they have access to the info needed to get into different accounts. I wouldn't be surprised if they were selling it off to the highest bidder.

yes its bank responsibility but what if someone stole your debit card and also found out the PIN that you had wrote somewhere

You're not only a troll, but the same person who thought that the accusation of Darkkjedii being a pedophile from Arte was "alright" - that's just creepy. People aren't hacking your nudes because you're not famous or renowned for anything at all. Except your new up and coming stardom here for being a iTroll.

you're a freakin retard man, you make up stories and reason out creepy things! about icloud hacks, even you're not popular, doesn't mean you're safe, they just don't surface on the news because they aren't celebrity or popular. for example if you're a girl and really cute, and have nice body, even you're not popular, and u took a nude selfie, you're at very high risk to become an internet celebrity.
