Anne Hathaway’s personal images were leaked online on Wednesday, presumably as part of an ongoing attack on celebrities and their personal accounts.
Links were posted on Tumblr and Reddit, and were widely shared on social media. The Oscar-winning star soon began trending on Twitter too.
Hathaway became the latest victim of an ongoing attack on the personal details of celebrities after a similar attack on pop star Miley Cyrus in April.
On August 31, 2014, a collection of almost 500 private pictures of various celebrities, mostly women, and with many containing nudity, were posted on the imageboard 4chan, and later disseminated by other users on websites and social networks such as Imgur and Reddit. The images were believed to have been obtained via a breach of Apple’s cloud services suite iCloud, but it later turned out that the hackers could have taken advantage of a security issue in the iCloud API which allowed them to make unlimited attempts at guessing victims’ passwords.
Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kaley Cuoco were among the first celebrities to be targetted. Lawrence recently said that she was blindsided by the leak, and still fears for her cyber security to this day.
Twitter erupted in a show of support for the star, in addition to shock:
