(PCM) Over the weekend of August 29th 2014, a full compressed directory including hundreds of photos of many female celebrities was unleashed across the Internet. It may be the largest release of nude celebrity photo hacking to date.
Most of the photos are tame by our latest modern standards, many stages of undress in poses made for intimate loved ones. While others are intensely graphic in sexual acts which are mortifying A-list celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence.
Even Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney has been caught up in the net of nude photos.
The list includes:
Jessica Brown Findlay
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Some photos are few such as Kirsten Dunst, while others are complete libraries including video like fashion model Ali Michael and Kate Upton. In every case it’s obvious the photos were never meant for public display and show celebrities at their most vulnerable.
With file sharing sites of many types, it is impossible for any of these celebrities to do any more than wait it out and do as little as possible to bring any more attention to the hack.
Meanwhile this nude celebrity photo hack does bring cloud storage issues front and center to everyone. It’s not just a celebrity issue, it’s an everyman issue that must be addressed by larger vendors such as Apple and Google who never really gave users the option to not use cloud storage.
Another list from this nude celebrity photos hack rumoured to be dropping imminently.
