There’s confirmation from Apple that some of its accounts were targeted and hacked-into ..and that lead to the posting online of some celebrity nude photos.
Apple says it found some individual accounts had been compromised – but there wasn’t a general breach of systems – including the “icloud” and “find my phone” services.
The F.B.I. says it is looking into allegations that online accounts of several celebrities – including Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence – had been hacked, resulting in the posting of their nude photographs online.
This afternoon’s statement from Apple was the first confirmation from the company that accounts had indeed been hacked.
