Is Apple To Blame For Leaked Celebrity Photos?


Famous people had a hard time keeping their private life, and parts, for that matter, away from curious global audience’s eyes. When price for nude pictures of celebrities are very high, no wonder they are targeted in the newest hacker attack on iCloud service.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence was one of those people whose naked pictures leaked online recently. ‘‘This is a flagrant violation of privacy,’’ a representative for Lawrence said in a statement. There were other famous women, actresses and performers whose pictures were also stolen.

‘‘We take user privacy very seriously and are actively investigating this report,’’ Apple representative Natalie Kerris told the website Recode. Until they investigate, iCloud’s privacy will be questioned by many security experts.

In 2012, the man who pleaded guilty for the leak of nude pictures of Scarlett Johansson was sentenced to 10 years behind the bars. Think twice, hackers.
