Reports that Pippa Middleton’s iCloud account was hacked and had her photos stolen and put up for sale. The hack came to light after U.K. paper The Sun was contacted by a hacker claiming to have over 3,000 of Middleton’s photos and asking for around $70,000 within 48 hours for them.

The images feature Pippa’s sister, Duchess Kate; Prince William; their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte; as well as information about Pippa’s upcoming wedding and nude images of Pippa’s fiancé, James Matthews. To prove that the images were authentic, the hacker sent a few shots of Pippa at her wedding dress fitting to The Sun. However, the newspaper did not purchase the photos and notified Middleton of the hack.

London’s Metropolitan Police did not confirm the hack to NBC News, but did confirm that it is investigating.

The recent hack makes Middleton one of countless female celebrities whose pictures and personal information have been stolen. Others whose pictures were posted online in the past include Jennifer Lawrence, Leslie Jones, and Kim Kardashian.

So, the question once again arises – WHY do people insist on taking intimate photos and keeping them on their phone or icloud ?

What is the harm if it's as per the truth ..... the persons are original ............ every body would like to look as per the original shape or size .......... ? ........... It would be a good alternative if the Govt Modesty Dept give him the required money & the guy leaves the idea to sell the pics ........ ....

People seem to be obsessed with taking photos , especially naked ones and sharing them on social media or storing them on such gadgets...

Is society to blame for this or are there other factors....

Is it because it is so easy to do or that we see celebrities doing this and want to ape them ?

Yup, a good question especially when they are aware of hackers are all around them. Or, they blindly trust their gadgets to be absolutely secure which unfortunately they are not.
