4Chan leaks hundreds of hacked celebrity nude photos


Today is probably not the best day for Apple and all the heads over at iCloud, because news has just broke that a hacker was able to bypass the service’s security measures to obtain hundreds of authentic nude photographs of many well known celebrities. Among them are big names like Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Hunger Games), Kate Upon, Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Aubrey Plaza (Scott Pilgrim vs the World), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man Trilogy), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs the World), Selena Gomez, Alison Brie (Community) and pop artist Ariana Grande (Sam & Cat) to just name a few.


The hacker responsible for the intrusion has posted a screenshot earlier in the day of all the files he had acquired during the intrusion and has been releasing photos in batches throughout the day. A representative for both Jennifer Lawrence and Mary Elizabeth Winstead have confirmed the authenticity of the photos and have said they plan to seek legal action against the individual that leaked the photos.


This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.

So far there has been no statement from Apple or iCloud. We’ll keep you posted in the this on going story.
