Candid photos of Jennifer Lawrence and dozens of other celebrities leaked via iCloud

    Personal photos of some celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Ariana Grande, were posted by an anonymous hacker on 4Chan . Apparently, leaks became possible due to hacking accounts from the Apple iCloud cloud storage, into which information from all Apple devices is automatically copied, which most users do not even think about.

    While we are not talking about some kind of global vulnerability in the service, perhaps the girls became victims of targeted attacks and each account was compromised separately, and the information accumulated over a long time.

    Spokeswoman Jennifer Lawrence made a statement confirming that the photographs are genuine:

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead also confirmed authenticity of photos:

    It is possible that the bruteforce password for appleID was used by the newly developed ibrute tool , based on the vulnerability of the Find My Iphone service API (the vulnerability has been fixed at the moment ). Apple itself has not yet commented on this situation.

    In Florida, 2011, Christopher Cheney, 36, was arrested after hacking email accounts with Scarlett Johansson and 49 other celebrities, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

    More recently, activists from the Shaltay Boltay group abducteddata from Dmitry Medvedev’s two iPhones, including photos, SMS and application data. Given the limited access to the body of the prime minister, experts agree that this leak also occurred through the Apple iCloud cloud.
