Icloud leak celebrities photos


Countless celebrity nude photo leaks being blamed on supposed iCloud hack (Updated)

A plethora of reports are swirling around the internet that countless private celebrity photos have leaked (no, were not going to link you), andwhat are as of right now baselessrumors claim that someone found a vulnerability in Apples iCloudplatform and exploited it to obtain the images. Of the celebrities reportedly involved are Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Avril Livigne, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mary Kate Olsen, Hillary Duff, and many others.

News of the leaked images first started spreading on a 4chan /b/ thread earlier today, where many users have made claims that the leaks are due to at least one person maliciously exploiting iCloud and various celebrities cell phones. Reports on 4chan also claim that the hacker has acquired videos as welland intends to sell them to TMZ for as much as six figures. Of course, most of this information is from an anonymous 4chan board, so take it with a heaping pile of salt.

But the fact remains that these private photos are definitely making the rounds, and many celebrities have taken to Twitter to seemingly confirm that at least some of them are indeed real. Most notably, Mary Winstead says she can only imagine the creepy effort that went into the leaks.

Photo Stream automatically syncs photos to iCloud as theyre taken, but its not yet known how the hackerif they did indeed manage to hack iCloudgot ahold of so many different celebrities photos across so many accounts. Mary Winstead mentions that the leaked photos of hers were deleted long ago, which raises even more questions includingwhether or not a deleted iCloud photo is ever truly deleted. But that, of course, assumes that iCloud is the problem here.

As many have noted intending to prove that iCloud isnt the source of these nudes, videos dont work with My Photo Stream. You can, as of iOS 7, upload them to shared streams (and therefore iCloud) and, perhaps more importantly, iCloud will also upload them to the cloud when performing a full device backup. Having access to an iCloud account would mean that a hacker could effectively restore the account to a wiped phone.

Some celebrities have reported that they dont even use an iPhone, which leads most to believe that the hacker got these filesfrom multiple sources (which is probably likely anyway) orthat some other cloud service could bethe real culprit. Perhaps more interesting, however, is that some celebrities, namely Trisha Hershberger, have proven that their nudes are actually fake and, coincidentally, they dont use an iPhone.

Weve reached out to Apple for comment on the situation. In the meantime, now is a good time to remind you to turn on two-factor authentication on your iCloud account.

Update: A vulnerability in the Find My Phone service may have allowed hackers to brute-force themselves into celebrity accounts.

Its still speculation at this point that iCloud is involved at all, but avulnerability found in Find My iPhone could have permitted hackers to brute-force their way into accounts by guessing a huge number of passwords that fall in line with Apples criteria. In order for this method of attack to work, the accounts of the celebrities in question would have to have relatively weak passwords. But as many celebrities know each other and would have other celebrities contacts in their address books, its possible that contacts data could be used to identify the account email addresses of others, effectively creating a chain of hacks.

The program,being called iBrute and exploiting a flaw now patched that let the program guess an unlimited number of passwords without being locked out, hasnt been linked directly to any attack on iCloud. But saidsecurity flaw that it took advantage of came to light and was fixed on the same day of the leak of countless private celebrity photos, so the timing is definitely a little uncanny.

Update 2: Apple has issued a statement to Re/codesaying that theyre actively investigating whether or not iCloud was actually involved in leaking the private images. We take user privacy very seriously and are actively investigating this report, Natalie Kerris, spokesperson for Apple, said.

Update 3: As pointed out by Mashable, the iBrute program was released just three days before the leak of the first celebrity photo, which may not have been enough time for this specific vulnerability to have been exploited to the extent needed to leak hundreds of celebrities nude photos.On August 30th,Andrey Belenko and Alexey Troshichev, security researchers withviaForensics and HackApp, respectively, gave an in-depth report (link to presentation slides) at Defcon Russia on the state of iCloud security, and iBrute was their proof of concept.

In the presentation,viaForensics actually outlines how Find My iPhone isnt the only security flawhere. Supposedly, hackers may have been able to guess a users iCloud Security Code offline, which therefore not triggering a lock out mechanism similar to one that was missing from Find My iPhone.

In terms of how this applies to the issue at hand, the iBrute Find My iPhone flaw being patched this morning may have simply been a result of this security talk and had nothing to do with the leaked images.

Update 4: Actress Kirsten Dunst appears to credit iCloud for her photos beingleaked.

Update 5: The United StatesFBI is investigating the alleged iCloud hack, according to an FBI spokesperson (via The Telegraph):

[The FBI is]aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter.Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.

Update 6: Apple has denied that iCloud was actually breached, and says that this was actually a very targeted attack on certain celebrities.

Celebrity iCloud Photo Leak What Happened?

The leak of hundreds of celebrity nude photos Labor Dayweekend has many people pointing the finger at Apples iCloud. Many of the celebrities whos photos leaked used iCloud to backup their phones. Apple claims the leak was the result of a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions.

What does this mean?

As new information comes to light, the depth and age of the hacks is shocking. Gawker reports that As far back as a few weeks ago, a Deadspin reader tipped the sports site to the alleged existence of a large collection of private photographs stolen from celebrities. All investigations are circling to an unorganized online club of people who specifically tried to gain access to celebrities private images.

One of the victims of the hack, Mary E. Winstead said

This online club of illicit photo traders has reportedly been dealing in these photos for years. Again, most of this info is pieced together from many reports, but supposedly someone decided to try to sell the cache of photos, and other traders caught wind and also decided to try to cash in, leading to the hundred or so photos to be leaked over the course of Sunday, August 31 throughout the day.

There are several possible ways that the hackers gained access to the sensitive pictures. Once the hackers knewthe celebritys iCloud email address, they could either use a brute-force password cracking program (Apple closed the security hole that allowed this to be possible by Tuesday, September 2), or they coulduse information from articles and interviews with the celebrities to guess the password to their iCloud accounts, OR use that same info to reset the passwords by answering the security questions.

Once the hackers had the iCloud password, it is widely believe that they used law-enforcement toolElcomsoft Phone Password Breaker(or EPPB as its commonly known as) to download and peruse iPhone backups from the Cloud. This tool is legal. If someone knows your iCloud username/email and your password, they can then download a backup of your entire phone to their computer, and peruse whatever theyd like, including texts, photos, and emails.

This is the short version of how it happened. For longer, deeper-reads, I recommend the Washington Posts piece, Deadspins original piece, and Gawkers piece. Also, check out Part 2 of this article, which focuses on what you can do to protect yourself.

You can get the picture package here -> http://www.allchildrengreatandsmall.com/groups/get-icloud-celebrity-nudes-leaked-online/

Numerous exposed, semi-uncovered, and uncovering pictures of female enormous names were discharged overnight in the wake of being stolen from their private aggregations. Wanting Games entertainer Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, and pop star Ariana Grande were among the superstars clearly exhibited in the pictures, which were posted on outrageous web assembling 4chan. It's foggy how the pictures were gotten, yet obscure 4chan customers said that they were taken from celebrated individuals' icloud accounts. The records are planned to allow iphone, ipad, and Mac customers to synchronize pictures, settings, plan information, and other data between devices, however the organization has been reproved for being conflicting and dumbfounding. As of late, Jennifer Lawrence herself whimpered about the organization in a gathering with MTV. The first leaker behind the big name photographs asserted that they got to the pictures utilizing the icloud records of different superstars. It's unrealistic that somebody has broken into Apple's icloud administration. Rather the photographs in all probability developed because of a kind of hacking known as "social designing." This endeavor meets expectations by realizing which online administrations your target uses, and after that arranging however much information on them as could reasonably be expected before utilizing that information to either farce access, or to just utilize their email location and a speculated secret word to log into their record. Jennifer Lawrence is known to utilize icloud after she let slip in a celebrity lane meeting with MTV in the not so distant future that she regularly experiences difficulty with the administration, commenting "My icloud holds letting me know to back it up, and I'm similar to, I don't know how to back you up. Do it without anyone's help." In the wake of finding the icloud record of a big name, its insignificantly simple to get to their online photograph reinforcement through Apple's Photo Stream utility and icloud photograph reinforcements. Investigation of the inserted EXIF information (data about where and how the picture was taken that is habitually attached to advanced photograph pictures) included in one of the spilled pictures reveals to it was taken a couple of weeks prior, well inside Photo Stream's breaking point of 30 prior days pictures are erased. Then again, on-screen character Mary Elizabeth Winstead guaranteed on Twitter that the released photographs of her included in the hack were taken "years back."Photos and videos including:

Aly and AJ Michalka, Aubrey Plaza, Abby Elliott, Avril Lavigne, Amber Heard, Brie Larson, Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevigne, Emily Ratjakowski, Farrah Abraham, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Pannettiere, Hope Solo, Hillary Duff, Jenny McCarthy, Kayley Cuoco, Kate Upton, Kate Bosworth, Keke Palmer, Kim Kardashian, Kirsten Dunst, Krysten Ritter, Lea Michele, Lizzy Caplan, Mary Kate Olsen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rihanna, Scarlet Johansson, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Wynona Ryder, Alison Brie and Dave Franco.

Apparently, the hacker is Russian. The media is making lots of money with their faux outrage, while ensuring that millions of people will now go searching for the photos.

It's misty how the pictures were gotten, yet unknown 4chan clients said that they were taken from famous people's icloud accounts. The records are intended to permit iphone, ipad, and Mac clients to synchronize pictures, settings, schedule data, and other information between gadgets, however the administration has been reprimanded for being inconsistent and befuddling. Recently, Jennifer Lawrence herself whined about the administration in a meeting with MTV.

Apple 'actively investigating' iCloud link to celeb photo leak

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.
