Amy Jackson’s iPhone hacked, hackers leak personal pictures stored on iCloud
Unknown hackers have hacked into British model and Indian actress, Amy Jackson’s iPhone and leaked her private and explicit images online. The images leaked by the hackers are doing rounds on WhatsApp and Facebook posts in India.
Amy Jackson is a British-born Indian actress who is quite famous in Tollywood – the portmanteau for Tamil film industry. Amy Jackson started as an actress in the 2010 Tamil period-drama Madrasapattinam. While further pursuing her modeling career in the UK, Jackson debuted in Bollywood romantic drama Ekk Deewana Tha, which flopped miserably. She later starred in Prabhudeva’s Singh Is Bling in 2015 opposite Akshay Kumar which was an average hit.
According to Jackson, he had given her iPhone for repair at a mobile store in London when she was not able to access her iCloud account. When Jackson returned to Chennai she found that her iPhone had been hacked and the hackers had released her personal and private images on the Internet. While she believes that her iPhone was hacked at the mobile store, should couldn’t confirm it.
Speaking about the incident, Amy was quoted by mid-day as saying, “I was shocked when this happened. This isn’t a trivial matter and has to be taken up seriously. I will register a complaint with the cyber crime cell in London and ensure the hackers are taken to task. Cyber safety is the need of the hour.”
The actress was performing at the Vanitha Awards in Kochi. “Thanks Kerala! Next stop Chennai for Robot 2.0 shoot,” she posted on her Twitter page.
Indian actresses from down under have been victims of such hacks. Earlier last year, hackers had hacked similarly into Hansika Motwani and Anushka Shetty’s social media accounts and leaked explicit images. In both cases, the images and videos went viral while the police were unable to apprehend the hackers.
