Sometimes I wish the internet could just be a place to exchange wholesome information, such as cooking recipes and tips on Linux, but sadly, there is a dark side. There are deviant people lurking on the web doing all sorts of horrible things. Yesterday, a hacker leaked the private pictures and videos (nude and semi-nude) of many celebrities, and they have spread across the net. For these celebrities, who are real people, I am sure it has been a very trying time; their privacy has been destroyed and I offer my sympathies. For the many people (if they can be called that) viewing and spreading the pictures, the occasion has been dubbed

Ammanda Daniher's curator insight, September 11, 7:33 PM

It is pretty clear that iCloud has become a threat to most Apple users due to the recent "Celebrity nudes" scandal. I strongly believe that you shouldn't be worried about people being able to get a hold of photographs and videos of personal moments, such as family dinners and Christmas parties. This incident really makes you wonder just how easy it is to hack in to Apple's software systems, and how much Apple's developers have seen of our personal lives. Scandals such as thing will keep things talking, but will Apple release a statement regarding everything that has happened?

iCloud Hacking Could Tarnish Apple's Image - Forbes

iCloud Hacking Could Tarnish Apple's Image - Forbes | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) reportedly allowed a hacker to take over a journalist's iCloud account by deceiving the company's tech support team. What affect will this have on the future of Apple's success?

 

This situation could cause irreparable harm to Apple, which touts iCloud as an “automatic and effortless” offer that integrates into users’ apps. The iPhone maker heavily promotes the fact that iCloud allows users to backup and restore their data.
