Jennifer Lawrence Kate Upton leaked photos who’s really to blame

Jennifer Lawrence Kate Upton leaked photos who’s really to blame


Celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and Mary E. Winstead recently had personal and very risque cell phone photos stolen by hackers.

Cinema news has come to a screeching halt as outlets around the globe have sidelined pertinent film news for TMZ style coverage of celebrity leaked photos. While it may seem hypocritical to condemn outlets for discussing the same subject I am writing about, you have to admit that the subject is not one that can be ignored so if you can’t beat them, I guess you have to join them.

Instead of the trashy norm of providing links to the photos, we would like to ask the question of “Who is really to blame?” But for those who are unfamiliar with the photos at large, here is a quick summation of the events:

Celebrities including Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence were the target of what appears to be one of the biggest celebrity hackings.
Dozens of private, nude photographs were said to be accessed from phones and leaked online, reports CBS News correspondent Anthony Mason. The pictures were allegedly taken from a cloud-based Internet data storage system.
Posts on the websites 4chan and Reddit said the celebrities were exposed when a hacker broke into their cloud-based storage.

The photos were “stolen” from many celebrities’ Apple iCloud accounts which is an online storage system for Apple users’ personal media items. The hacker who stole the photos accessed these celebrity accounts by exploiting a flaw in the iCloud system which allowed them to hack into a user’s account. Even though the hacker was obviously the instigator in the matter, should Apple’s system have been more secure in order to prevent such attempts? Should Apple have handled user data with more care? Should any of these celebrities taken the photos in the first place using a system that interfaces with online storage? The question is, “Is there one particular person to pinpoint or is there more than one person to blame?”

Who is really to blame?
