How do celebrities get hacked?

Celebrities. Theyre just like us! Theyre susceptible to the same mobile threats as normal people are, like phishing and malware. Plus, famous people are likely at more risk for targeted hacking attacks. The personal info on their devicescontacts, pictures, emailsis not just sensitive; it can be very valuable fodder for the tabloids. If only those Peoples Choice Awards came with Lookouts Five Tips engraved on the side!

Here are the top ways we speculate famous people get their phones and sensitive contacts and photos compromised.

They click on links from "friends."

Celebrities: they have friends, too! Celebs can be targeted in spear fishing. Scammers can trigger an email or Facebook post appearing to come from a trusted friend or relative, rather than a run-of-the-mill, shady Nigerian prince, prompting a celeb to unwittingly download malware or give up private, sensitive information. Phishing attacks can be even more effective on mobile than on desktop PC because you likely cant see the majority of the link due to the small form factor of your mobile device (in fact, research has shown that users are three times more likely to click on a suspicious link from their phone as opposed to their PC).

They use the same password everywhere, or none at all.

We speculate the News of the World voicemail hacking scandal was made possible because many people choose very simplistic voicemail codes (1111) or never even take the time to change the factory default voicemail PIN number on their devices. This makes it very easy for hackers to listen to voicemail messages that are stored on cell phone carriers servers.

In addition to setting a different voicemail passcode, make sure to have different passwords for different online accounts and also set a passcode to access the device itself. Sure, the extra second seems like a hassle for every time a celeb wants to check for email from her agent. But think about all the apps like email and photo gallery that you can access right from the phones dashboard. Without a passcode on a celebs phone, a paparazzo-cum-pickpocket could swoop in on an unsuspecting celeb and get easy access to all the good stuff.

They use the free WiFi at the coffee shop.

Whenever you see famous people in the tabloids, they always have some coffee beverage in one hand and their phone and keys in the other. It stands to reason that celebrities, just like us, relish saving on network data charges and tapping into the free, public WiFi at the coffee shop. They should be sure to only window shop: look but dont log in to websites on public WiFi. These WiFi signals often send data unecrypted, in the clear. So if youre logging into Amazon or your bank on public WiFi, its a little bit like sending your passwords through the post in a clear envelope. It doesnt take the smartest hacker to grab this sensitive data off the air.

They use phones with known software vulnerabilities.

Youre a busy celeb. You have a reality show to tape, a childrens book to write, a restaurant to open, and Oscar to polish. You dont have time to download the latest system updates for your phone, right? Wrong! Make sure your phone has all the latest firmware updates, because the updates often fix known security bugs. In fact, back in 2005 when Lookout was known as Flexilis, the three co-founders made news by standing outside the Oscars, where they were able to scan as many as one hundred phones whose sensitive data could be stolen by exploiting known network carrier vulnerabilities.

It can be a little disappointing to learn that famous people are not so different from us normal folk. On the bright side, you dont have to be famous to get first-class smartphone security when you follow a few simple precautions.

Tons of celebrities hacked and photos leaked

guess there should be a thread on this Basically someone hacked a ton of celebrity icloud accounts and has been been releasing the pics online. the list of pics (and vids) he claims to have is here

http://i.imgur.com/MJpiEG3.png

subreddit /r/TheFappening/ seems to be the best place to follow. Altho hes releasing them on 4chan if you want to wade directly into that

jlaw is threatening to sue the entire internet, and victoria justice took to twitter to say the pic of her was fake. The hacker responded by dumping an entire folder of her pics online, clearly not fake, lol.

meh, if you are a celebrity and you are dumb enough to take pics of yourself naked on your cell phone, then *Shrug* Its not like any of these people are forced to be famous either. Many of them actually just want the fame, they arent even actors or actresses who just have a passion for their craft and the fame is an unfortunate by product. They sent out to specifically be famous. They all certainly take advantage that millions of people follow them on twitter and they have a voice that is heard and an opinion that matters more than the average schmo, and they love the millions of dollars that they make. This is just whats on the other side of that coin. So the reality of that is, if you want all the good, then if you are going to take pictures of your beaver to send over the airwaves to your BF, you get to deal with the bad, cuz its pretty much inevitable. Its not like this is some shocking thing no one knew could happen either, so they cant claim ignorance.

I'm not going to feel bad for a fireman who says its not fair that he has to go into burning buildings because its hot, and he didnt know that was going to be part of the job.

Automatically uploading pics to dropbox, google, FB etc... is retarded. It's happened so many times you'd think they would learn from previous happenings.

hahaha basically if the icloud rumor/theory is true, it'll be a huge hit to all the apple sheeps. centralization of this kind of information is dangerous.

Is it one guy leaking these? How did he get them? A single leak with so many different celebs, how does that happen?

One guy. He hacked into their Iclouds somehow. He would post a screenshot of files and then people would send him bitcoins to post the files. I believe he was up to 400k dollars worth of bitcoins a few hours ago. razorbacker is offline Reply With QuoteOld 08-31-2014, 09:51 PM #23

gregorio is offline Reply With Quote Apple 'actively investigating' iCloud link to celeb photo leak
htdcybersec620x350610x344.jpg

Apple said Monday it is "actively investigating" whether a security breach at its iCloud service was responsible for the leak of several private, nude images of celebrities, including actress Jennifer Lawrence.

"We take user privacy very seriously and are actively investigating this report," Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris told Recode. CNET has contacted Apple for comment and will update this report when we learn more.

A large cache of risque images - some said to be real, others fake -- first appeared Sunday on the image-based bulletin board 4chan. The images were said to have been taken from the iCloud accounts of celebrities such as Lawrence, model Kate Upton, and recording artist Ariana Grande, and have since spread across the Internet on social media.

A vulnerability in the online storage service's "Find My iPhone" feature could allow a brute force attack in which multiple, rapid-fire attempts are made to correctly guess an account's password, according to Github. The code-hosting site reported that Apple had repaired the vulnerability.

However, some of the photos appear to have come from different devices and may have been accumulated over a long period of time.

This isn't the first time Apple's online service has been linked to a hacking. In 2012, former Gizmodo reporter Mat Honan blamed an AppleCare technician for allowing his personal e-mail and Twitter accounts to be hacked. Honan said a hacker wiped his devices and gained access to his Gmail and Twitter accounts after an Apple technician fell victim to social engineering, a technique of manipulating people instead of computers to perform a task or divulge information.
