Potential iCloud Hack Sees Compromising Celebrity Photos Leaked

icloudWhether you follow celebrity gossip or tech news, it seems that both genres have collided paths today in what can only be seen as one of the largest leaks of celebrity nude photos. According to multiple reports, it seems that a hacker has been steadily building up a collection of photos of a variety of celebrities and if you’re wondering what’s this got to do with tech, well it seems that they have managed to access these photos by hacking into Apple’s iCloud storage service.

Apple has yet to comment on the allegations that they have been hacked, but according to the reports, it seems that for the most part they were taken from iCloud, or so they claim. For those who are a little fuzzy about Apple’s iCloud services, it’s basically where users can upload and sync data on their phone with the cloud storage service. Not only can it sync your contacts, your calendars, your messages, your notes, but it can also backup your photos.

The hacker did not disclose how they managed to obtain the photos or how they hacked iCloud. According to actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead who was a victim of the hack, she claims that the photos that were leaked were taken a very long time ago and had long been deleted, suggesting that the photos stolen were from a backup service, such as iCloud or somewhere else.

It is also unclear as to how widespread the hack is. Was the hacker only targeting celebrities or were they targeting all Apple users who might have compromising photos or sensitive information in their iCloud storage? We guess we’ll just have to wait and see how this develops.

Celebrity photo leak: iCloud hack case remains unsolved one year on

The cyber attack case that saw nude photos of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton posted online is still to be solved by authorities, one year on. 

On August 31 last year, hundreds of explicit images of some of Hollywood's most famous stars were posted to several forum websites anonymously after hackers broke into the iCloud accounts of more than 500 people, predominantly celebrities.

A piece of computer code that repeatedly guessed common passwords is said to have been used in the attack.

The US-based investigation has since led the FBI to search several addresses and seize electronic equipment, but as the first anniversary is reached, the case remains open and no charges have yet been brought.

Hunger Games actress Lawrence called the breach a "sex crime" in the aftermath of the publication. 

Apple, which runs iCloud, the virtual storage space for customer photos and other data, strenuously denied that its servers had been breached as part of the attack, with many security experts pointing to password strength as being the root of the problem.

Internet security expert Jonathan Sander said: "The cloud isn't insecure, Apple's cloud isn't any more or less secure than any other, and those photos weren't any more or less locked down than others.

"The problem is any system is only as strong as its weakest password. The password that a human must use will almost always be the weakest link. It's widely believed that the thieves simply targeted well-known accounts and hacked away at the passwords until they got in."

The iPhone maker has since taken steps to improve security, adding a second layer to logging in to create what is known as "two-factor authentication", as well as adding an email notification system that tells users when someone tries to access their account on a different device. 

But Mr Sander, a senior executive at internet security firm Lieberman Software, said that human nature still poses an issue.

"If users think that's too much of pain, they don't turn it on, and keep using their dog's name for a password, which ultimately means these attacks will continue to succeed," he said.

Since the photo leak, Sony Pictures and adultery website Ashley Madison have also suffered high-profile cyber attacks. Though of a different nature, personal data also found its way online, which has prompted more websites, including forums Reddit and 4Chan, both of which carried the leaked iCloud photos, to begin tightening their content policies in order to cut down on the distribution of such material.
