Amber Heard, Emma Watson, Rihanna and others victimized by nude photo leak scandals; Apple advises iCloud users to use "strong passwords" and "enable two-step verification"
The 28-year old fiancee of the renowned actor Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, is becoming the center of media scandals recently after hackers leaked her nude photos. Naked photos of other stars namely, Rihanna, Gabrielle Union, Emma Watson etc were also surfaced allegedly.
There are nearly fifty photos of Heard that were uploaded on 4chan and Reddit, as stated on the report of TMZ; including the new victims such as the 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' star Rachel Nichols, Meagan Good, and Victoria's Secret angel Candice Swanepoel. The scandalous photos may seem like a part two from the earlier leaks that exposes pure skin of Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Kardashian, Kate Upton and more.
Fans of the renowned actress and United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassadress Emma Watson had raised their eyebrows about hearing their idol being victimized by this iCloud hacking. Many believe that this is just a speculation, and no reports have concluded that she really had naked photos. Meanwhile, the actress' representative refused to comment concerning the allegations.
"It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures," a strong statement coming from the 41-year old star and Dwyane Wade's wife Gabrielle Union, as quoted by Daily Beast. "I can't help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide."
Meanwhile, 'Deception' and 'Think Like a Man Too' 33-year old star Meagan Good responded to the leak controversy via Instagram, where she was quoted saying, "I'm definitely in shock... saddened for everyone who is experiencing this... but I 'choose' not to give the persons responsible my power. At the end of the day we all know these pictures were for my husband. And at the end of the day evidently we all know how I feel about my titties. That's all I've got folks. Oh yeah and for everyone who's reposting the leaked nudes? You should be ashamed of yourself."
Apple has sent out an advisory regarding the immense hacking incidents. The company stated, "None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple's systems including iCloud® or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved." Consequently, the leading tech company advised their consumers and clients to continue on using "strong passwords" and "enable two-step verification".
