A source close to the investigation into the leaked nude photos of dozens of celebrities tells the Los Angeles Times the pictures were hacked from the stars’ Apple devices through phishing. The source did not provide the newspaper any more details. Typically in phishing, a hacker pretends to be a computer company or communications provider trying to check security information. The hacker then gains access to passwords, personal emails, and other material. The nude photos of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Kate Upton, and Kirsten Dunst vent viral on the Internet on Sunday after they were uploaded to a message board. The FBI has said it is looking into the case, and Apple also is investigating its iCloud system.
