The iCloud celebrity photo hack

12 replies • Last post

So the big news everywhere is the recent hack of a few celebrities iCloud accounts and the leak of nude pictures. Apart from the obvious we can all learn something from this:

1. Don't put anything on the internet that you don't want anyone else to see. Seriously, its not rocket science. Nothing is perfectly secure.

2. Use a strong password that is randomly generated.

3. See rule 1.

While I feel a little bit sorry for these people, sometimes you have to own up to being careless. Also my wife thinks its hilarious that I have no idea who Jennifer Lawrence is. She says I'm becoming an old man.

I think ricky gervais said it right. These people should be smarter than taking pics of themselves naked any time ever. Unless they dont mind the pictures leaking which many have done in the past for a bit of publicity when their careers taken a downturn.

Ha at old man CL-Ed! Shes in the the hunger games movies.

Once again I am out of the loop. What did Ricky Gervais say? (and yes I know who he is!)

I agree that it is stupid to take naked photos of yourself, especially if you are a celebrity. I also understand that it is wrong for hackers to steal things, but feel that the onus falls more on these celebs.

I guess if one thing it proves that celebrities are just as stupid as the rest of the general population.

I don't know who any of these people are! There is no privacy anywhere anymore.

Ricky Gervais basically dared to state the bleedingly obvious and made a joke along the lines of your comments in the original post.

His original tweet said "Celebrities, make it harder for hackers to get nude pics of you from your computer by not putting nude pics of yourself on the computer,”

Apparently he took the tweet down after "backlash" from doom doom doom....social media!!
