A piece of Python script Can hack iPhone, source of Jennifer Lawrence and Rihanna Nude Photos

A piece of Python script  - a coding language – was spotted on software site Github that repeatedly guesses at a user’s password in order to find the right one. Doing so could give the hacker access to the user’s iCloud account, and therefore their photos. The malicious script was posted to GitHub (PA)

A-listers including Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Avril Lavigne, Hayden Panettiere ,Ariana Grande and Hope Solo have seen nude photos of themselves appear online as a result of the hack.
Some  actress  Spokesperson  claiming  image are "completely fake."

What is iCloud

iCloud is a cloud storage and cloud computing service from Apple Inc. launched on October 12, 2011. As of July 2013, the service has 320 million users.The service allows users to store data such as music and iOS applications on remote computer servers for download to multiple devices such as iOS-based devices running iOS 5 or later,and personal computers running OS X 10.7.2 "Lion" or later, or Microsoft Windows (Windows Vista service pack 2 or later).

It also replaces Apple's MobileMe service,acting as a data syncing center for email, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, notes, reminders (to-do lists), iWork documents, photos and other data. The service also allows users to wirelessly back up their iOS devices to iCloud instead of manually doing so using iTunes.

 Jennifer Lawrence's nude photos leaked after her iPhone iCloud got hacked.

According to the post Apple has already issued a “patch” or fix for the bug, and is said to be rolling it out worldwide.

Owen Williams from tech site The Next Web, who discovered the script, said: “Given enough patience and the apparent hole being open long enough, the attacker could use password dictionaries to guess common passwords rapidly. Many users use simple passwords that are the same across services so it’s entirely possible to guess passwords using a tool like this.

“If the attacker was successful and gets a match by guessing passwords against Find my iPhone, they would be able to, in theory, use this to log into iCloud and sync the iCloud Photo Stream with another Mac or iPhone in a few minutes, again, without the attacked user’s knowledge. We can’t be sure that this is related to the leaked photos, but the timing suggests a possible correlation.”

Apple has made no official comment and is said to still be investigating the claims that an iCloud flaw may be involved in the breach.

Security experts have been keen to stress that users could do more to protect themselves by improving their personal password security.

Rob Cotton, chief executive at web security experts NCC Group said: “Cyber security is not just a technology problem, humans are very much key to its success. In our day-to-day work we see too many cases of employees divulging sensitive information without first verifying the legitimacy of the request.

“People often point the finger at technology when they’ve been the victim of a cyber attack, but poor password choices or naivety in the face of a seemingly innocent e-mail is regularly to blame.”

Digital attacks in the past are not new, with a man jailed in 2012 for hacking the phones of actresses Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson.

In the Philippines  there a lot celebrity  scandal , However this is the most widespread to ever hit the web in a single post, with the source still to be officially identified.
