Here's a tip, if you're a celebrity, don't ever, ever take a nude photo. Over 100 celebrities were hacked, and had their scantily clad, and sometimes completely nude, photos released to the public. Jennifer Lawrence, "Glee" star Becca Tobin, Soccer star Hope Solo, Kirsten Dunst, and Krysten Ritter are just some of the ladies whose pictures are now on the web for everyone to see, according to eOnline.
Jennifer Lawrence's people have released a statement admitted the photos are real and calling this a "a flagrant violation of privacy," and promising "the authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence." Kate Upton's people also confirmed the pictures of her were real. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, another victim of the hacking, took to Twitter to talk about the breach. "To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves," she wrote. "Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked." Kirsten Dunst also took to Twitter to express her feelings about the hack. "Thanks iCloud," she wrote, followed by the pizza slice and poop emoji.
Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande both claim the photos of them are fakes, but none of the other targets are talking as of now.
Dan Ackerman told CBSNews that everyone's cloud-stored digital information is vulnerable, but hackers are actually looking for celebrity pictures and info. "If you think about it, you have multiple copies (of your data). There's a chance anything you put up in the cloud, it's available in some way," Ackerman said. "If (hackers are) not looking for it, less so really." He adds that the best way to go about it is to assume that even if you deleted your data, "there's a good chance somebody has a copy of it." Great.
The next step? The FBI. That's right, according to TMZ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking for the person, or people, in charge of this hack. "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," a statement from the FBI read. "Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time."
