Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and actress Vanessa Hudgens personal photos leaked
The famous ‘iCloud hacks’ leaker is back with a vengeance. After leaking upclose and personal images of more than 100 famous Hollywood celebrities, including “Hunger Games” star Lawrence, Kate Upton, Cara Delevingne, Vanessa Hudgens, Kirsten Dunst and Ariana Grande, today the leaker leaked private, personal and upclose photographs of Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgen, Avril Lavigne, Aubrey Plaza, Hayden Panettiere, Mary-Kate Olsen, Lake Bell, Avril Lavigne, Kaley Cuoco and Leelee Sobieski. There’s apparently also more pictures of Jennifer Lawrence which were released in the present set.
Though todays leaks are yet to be confirmed to be that by the same hacker who leaked the iCloud hacks, experts believe it is the same person or the group of hackers who is responsible for the current leaks. For one the modus operandi seems to be the same and the fact that the present set contains images of Jennifer Lawrence also points to the same. The images first appeared on the famous image boarding site 4han and later on Reddit. Reddit immediately shut down the new thread and since 4Chan has a new copyright infringement policy, they also deleted the pics. However before administrators of Reddit and 4Chan could take down the images, the images have travelled far and wide due to the social sharing on likes of Twitter and Facebook.
Round 2 of iCloud hacks
Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgen, Avril Lavigne, Aubrey Plaza, Hayden Panettiere, Mary-Kate Olsen, Lake Bell, Avril Lavigne, Kaley Cuoco and Leelee Sobieski are the latest Hollywood celebrities to have naked and other racy photos leaked online. The images which are mostly personal pics and most of which appear to be selfies are of women who are, or resemble the celebs, were first posted on 4Chan. As if on the cue, Reddit and Twitter picked them up early on Saturday and they are being shared right now on various social fora. This leaks comes about three weeks after revealing images of stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst, were distributed online as part of a massive celebrity personal photo leak.
When asked to comment on the latest round of Hollywood celebs leaks, actress Kim Kardashian’s representative declined comment. While spokespeople for Hudgens, Lavigne, Sobieski and Bell offered no immediate comment for now.
Original or fakes
It is unclear as of now, if the photos resembling the stars are authentic or not. It is also now clear if and how the celebrities were hacked. Since the first leaks which took place earlier, the US law enforcement agencies and FBI are investigating the cause for the hacks and leaks. Further Apple had instituted its own investigations on possible flaws on its popular file sharing platform, iCloud. Responding to the first personal photos leak, Apple had earlier this month confirmed there had been a “targeted attack” on “certain celebrities,” rather than a widespread security breach affecting all users. The company’s CEO, Tim Cook, said that celebs iCloud accounts were compromised. He said the Hollywood celebrities were either victims of phishing scams or had had their passwords stolen because hackers had guessed their security questions correctly.
More to follow ?
Obviously these images have been amassed over a number of years by these hackers, the leakers may have a Fort Knox full of such images and it is expected that more images will be leaked. After this leak it is confirmed that the hackers may start leaking many more images in small doses till their storage is empty.
