The apparent leak of hundreds of photos purportedly belonging to more than 100 high-profile singers, actors and celebrities has raised questions of the safety and security of digital services, reports Independent.co.uk. On Sunday night, images of high-profile stars including Jennifer Lawrence were posted on 4chan, an online image sharing forum, in an apparent hacking leak linked to the Apple iCloud service. Although the involvement of iCloud has not been confirmed, anonymous users on 4chan claimed to have taken them from the service. Although Apple’s encryption on the data itself is considered robust, access could have been gained through more indirect means.RSS
