Apple’s iCloud security nightmare gets worse as more nude celebrity pics leak

September 21st, 2014 at 8:42 AM
Apple iCloud Nude Photos Leak

If you thought that the hugely successful iPhone 6 launch would help Apple move past the controversy surrounding nude celerity photos that were stolen from hacked iCloud accounts, think again. TMZ reported on Saturday that a fresh round of stolen celebrity photos popped up on 4Chan and included pictures of Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo and Jennifer Lawrence. This marks the second major cache of nude celebrity photos that have hit the Internet following an earlier hack that included pictures of Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Jenny McCarthy, Kate Upton, Mary E. Winstead and many others.

How did all this happen? We’re still not exactly sure, although earlier this month a man claiming to be the hacker behind the leaks said that it was an operation that took “several months” of planning. There’s been some speculation that a Python script that popped up on Github last month could have been used to execute “brute force” attacks against the celebrities’ iCloud accounts in which hackers basically repeatedly guessed at the celebrities’ passwords until they found the right ones.

Apple has insisted that it’s not at fault for the massive hack but it’s nonetheless vowed to take extra measures to help users keep their data secure.
