Cloud Files Hacked, Nude Photos Appear of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and others.

One of the actresses, initially denied the pictures were of her.  That's the worst thing you can do.  It's like trying to hide the fact that you did something wrong.

None of these ladies did anything wrong.  Should they have been more careful in regards to where they put these?  It's hard to say.

I keep files in the cloud, but not anything anybody would really care about or bother with. 

But a person should expect a certain amount of privacy, security, and safety from companies like Google, Apple, and Amazon.  And if they can't provide that privacy and protection, then it's best to use some common sense and discretion in regards to what you keep in the cloud.

As I mentioned earlier though, with these companies offering free cloud service for photographs, you may not even know that your private pictures are being uploaded if you accidentally authorized the service or did it without knowing what you were agreeing to.


Nude photos of “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande and Kirsten Dunst, among others, leaked online Sunday morning in one of the biggest celebrity hacking scandals in recent memory. The images, which first appeared on image sharing site 4chan, show most of the celebrities nude or in provocative poses. A spokesperson for Lawrence confirmed the images were of the Oscar-winning actress and blasted the hackers for their “flagrant violation of privacy.” “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,” her representative warned.
So, a developing story. What makes this different is the fact that so many accounts were hacked and exposed, and if they were all kept by the same service, be it Apple or whomever, it will not be good for them. My advice: As soon as it is confirmed which company was hacked, I'd find other places to put my files and cancel the account. And remember: Don't put any personal information be it pictures or documents in the cloud. Use an external hard drive.


  1. Totally agree. Haven't seen the photos nor do I care to. People that hack and post these should be arrested.

  2. Well, one guy is serving 10 years for having done it. So we'll see if they can catch the culprit.
