Saw something about this hacking earlier on but I did not pay much attention to it. I think it's quite shocking that people will do this and attempt to cash in on it but that is the way people work nowadays if they know they can make some cash they will do what they can.

Lets just hope this does not give bitcoin a bad name, I personally see it doing so though.

Really? This is exactly the type of stuff people do and sadly there's an all to great demand for it. It should be no surprise around here that ppl will try to make coins anyway they can.

Seriously, why would it damages to Bitcoin? It only damages to Apple, if we consider a damage is caused.

Well it could further smear bitcoin in the eyes of the ignorant general public who think all it is used for is 'bad stuff'.

It's only natural btc will be used for this kind of stuff. Better than paypal at least. I don't think btc will get a bad rep from this though.

The problem of this "fappening" archive is more a DROPBOX (a PDF of getting started founded) opened system than a really hack of the icloud of Apple ...

Strange too, the picture have been cleaned for all EXIF tag (like GPS tag include from iPhone camera process) and name not indicate a real phone device source (and post picture traitment, too).

More like downloaded from official "books" from celebrity ... private book, i mean.

Yes she's there, but it's not much that people haven't seen before. Just google for the links.

Is it just me that hopes the rest of the pics are sold for bitcoins? Would actually be great free promotion, though obviously the media would look at the negative aspects of this.

I don't think the rest of the pics will be released. It seems the leaker was already doxed, there was some convincing evidence posted online earlier today. The accused person immediately deleted all their accounts, so I guess we'll see. (if it was this guy, he took almost no precautions before dumping these pictures and was absolutely bound to get caught)

There was no actual breach, more of people using weak passwords. Anyone with a strong password or two factor would be unaffected. It's more likely another service was compromised and they used the same passwords for iCloud.

They probably did. Those celebrities though. Gotta carry about their internet security a little bit more now.

The sheer incompetence and complete disregard for end user security demonstrated by Apple on this is simply inexcusable. Slate has an excellent article that explains why. http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/bitwise/2014/09/celebrity_photo_hack_blame_apple_for_its_disregard_for_user_security.html

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card
