Skip navigation! Story from News. Unfortunately, Watson and Seyfried's privacy has been compromised, thanks to the work of online hackers. This recent hack eerily coincides with the release of an alleged sex tape featuring actress Mischa Barton. With such egregious affronts to privacy becoming commonplace, it's clear that women celebrities are being especially targeted by hackers and trolls. But how much do you know about the history of such attacks?
On August 31, , a collection of almost 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 initially believed to have been obtained via a breach of Apple 's cloud services suite iCloud ,    or a security issue in the iCloud API which allowed them to make unlimited attempts at guessing victims' passwords. The event, which media outlets and internet users referred to under names such as the "fappening" a portmanteau of "fap"—a slang term for masturbation —and "the happening" and "Celebgate", was met with a varied reaction from the media and fellow celebrities. Critics felt that the distribution of the images was a major invasion of privacy for their subjects, while some of the allegedly depicted subjects questioned their authenticity. The leak also prompted increased concern from analysts surrounding the privacy and security of cloud computing services such as iCloud—with a particular emphasis on their use to store sensitive, private information. The images were obtained via the online storage offered by Apple 's iCloud platform for automatically backing up photos from iOS devices, such as iPhones. There are claims that unreleased photos and videos exist. The hacker responsible for the leak, who described themselves as being a "collector", distributed the leaked images on the image boards 4chan and Anon-IB in exchange for Bitcoin. Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton also re-posted some of the photos on his blog, but soon took them down and issued an apology, saying "he had acted in bad taste". A major center of activity was the link-sharing website Reddit ,  where a subreddit was created for sharing the photos;  in a single day, it amassed over , followers.
