First male celebrity targeted in iCloud nude pictures leak
The images included the first male celebrity victim, reality TV star Nick Hogan
More nude images of Hollywood stars have been leaked online in what has become the fourth round of the iCloud hacking scandal.
This time, the flood of images included the first male celebrity victim, reality TV star Nick Hogan, son of U.S. wrestler Hulk Hogan. The leak also included images of Winona Ryder, 90210 actress AnnaLynne McCord, and Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton.
According to the Daily Mail, many are suspecting the leak could be coming to an end considering that lower profile celebrities are the hacker’s latest victims.
Previous iCloud leaks, which began last August, included nude pictures Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst and Kate Upton. The stream of nude images also featured music stars Rihanna and Avril Lavigne, TV actress Kaley Cuoco, American female goalkeeper Hope Solo and socialites Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, among others.
Ever since the leaks began, dozens of legal complaints against Apple, over its cloud computing service, and Google where the nude pictures are still accessible through image searches.
This latest scandal comes only four days after a lawyer for more than a dozen targeted celebrities issued Google with a threat to sue for $100 million for “failing to act” and “making millions and profiting from the victimization of women,” according to the Daily Mail.
Meanwhile, Apple is desperately trying to tighten iCloud security.
