Hack took place, but no security breach, says Apple
September 3 , 2014
Confirming that iCloud accounts of some celebrities had been hacked, Apple has however claimed that there was no evidence to suggest a breach in the firm’s security systems.
The hack may have been carried out by deducing the log-in credentials of the victims, Apple indicated.
Nude pictures of around 20 celebrities stolen by unidentified hackers were posted online. Actress Jennifer Lawrence was among the victims of the hack.
The case is being investigated by the FBI.
