iCloud And Jennifer Lawrence Nudie Photos

The recent splurge of naked and semi-naked photos of nubile celebs apparently taken by their own smartphone cameras has raised the possibility of some kind of iCloud hack. iCloud is the cloud service provided to Apple customers for backup and storage purposes. One theory is that the recent Emmy award ceremony may have been the target of some hacking directed at those in attendance.Apple is looking into the breach from their end of things.
A hacker has leaked nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence online and claims to have hacked dozens of other female celebs.

Photos of the actress topless began circulating after a hacker allegedly stole them from her iCloud account and posted them on the website 4chan.

Lawrence’s rep has confirmed the legitimacy of the photos, telling BuzzFeed in an emailed statement,“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

Mashable noted this isn’t anywhere close to the first celebrity hack, but what makes this one disturbing — besides the obvious reasons — is it’s rumored to have happened through iCloud’s Photo Stream feature.
