Among the victims of the leak are Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton and other girls.
A large batch of nude photos and videos of Hollywood celebrities has hit the Internet. A US hacker hacked into the iCloud cloud service and posted intimate materials on the network. Some stars promised to sue the hacker and Apple, while others preferred to let the situation take its course.
Hackers spread a database of erotic photos and videos with 60 Hollywood stars on American social networks. Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton, Rihanna, Kaley Cuoco, Kate Bosworth, Elisha Cuthbert, Avril Lavigne, Emily Ratjkowski, Selena Gomez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and many others were included in the list of victims of the iCloud cloud server cyberattack.
- To those who are now looking at the photos that I took with my husband a few years ago in an intimate home environment, I hope you feel great, - one of the affected stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead wrote on her Twitter account. - Considering that these photos have long been deleted, I can only imagine how much work it took to dig it up. I sympathize with everyone who was hacked.
It is known that some North American media offered hackers a six-figure sum for intimate photos, but programmers refused to sell the material to the press. Some stars have already announced that they will sue the hacker and, in fact, Apple, which owns iCloud. Others have remained silent for now. According to experts, it is possible that the point is not in the protection system of the service, but in its employees.
- There is also such an option that it could not be a hack, but a leak from the company's employees who have access to the data on the server, - the head of the IT company Leonid Lapidus told the First Regional website. - First of all, you need not spread or encrypt. It's hard to talk about the reliability of cloud services, since they are all identical in their system, but I would give my preference to Google or Yandex. The first has two-factor encryption, and the second has a good level of protection. However, the main defense is to think about what you are photographing and where you are posting it.
