Famous Nude and Apple in a Same Headline, The Dream of The Media #Celebgate

While Spain was going to bed, United States was burning with the publication of an enormous amount of photos on 4chan, the forum where are born the most stupid things you can find on the Internet today. Jennifer Lawrence (The hunger games), Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs.) The World), Kirsten Dunst (Spiderman), Kate Upton model, or singers like Ariana Grande and Selena Gómez are just some of the best-known names in a list that never stops growing.

A succulent news certainly Apple puts you the perfect icing on the cake with lots of media resulting in fact a fact that so far is just pure speculation: iCloud could be the source of the photos. Newspapers such as El Mundo even speak of failure safety, when the truth is that neither the author of the filtration has given too much information regarding this.

Perhaps it is worth take advantage of this incident to reconsider the security and privacy of the services that we use

What is certain is that between the photographs we see selfies made with Android phones, files thumbs.db de Windows, video format WebM instead of MP4, PDF of introduction to Dropbox… in short, a series of red flags that the less we should invite to the caution While we wait for an official statement from Apple which in all probability will.

Eye, the possibility that the hacker has exploited a security vulnerability is there, and just at the time of writing these lines have emerged new data on failure of the API of find my iPhone detected a few days ago (and fortunately now resolved) allowing to perform brute force to service attacks Apple cloud. It is not defending anyone, but aiming before firing.

Even so, either you extrañareis that we are facing another case of phishing as the affected to Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson two years ago. On that occasion the hacker, finally identified and sentenced to ten years in prison, managed to access e-mails of his victims through the classic fake messages where someone pretends to be our email provider informing us of a problem and offering a link to retrieve your password. The weakest is always the user.

Having said that, and avoiding any cheap moralina that point to the victims, and not to the author, perhaps worth take advantage of this incident to reconsider the security and privacy of the services that we use. Alien to what were oblivious of him, Jennifer Lawrence joked earlier this year during an interview to MTV about their problems to cope with iCloud, a service that, fortunately, will see IOS significantly simplified 8 its function of synchronization of photos and videos.

Returning to the topic, the representative of JLaw has validated the authenticity of the photographs, pointing to the “flagrant violation of privacy” which is broadcast. The actress Mary E. Winstead has also confirmed the authenticity of his, while Victoria Justice has demonstrated that in his case it is a montage made with Photoshop. It’s what touches, the proliferation of countless fakes in the heat of events.

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.
