Apple Admits Celebrity Accounts Hacked But Denies Systemwide Breach

A man looks at his Apple iPad in front an Apple logo outside an Apple store in downtown Shanghai March 16, 2012. Dozens of nude photos were first released on anonymous message boards AnonIB and 4chan over the weekend. There are a lot of theories about how this could have occurred, but one of the most prominent suggests multiple hackers spent months getting into the seemingly-secure accounts, either because they were hired to steal the photos or so they could trade the images for other things online, like more nude photos or Bitcoins.  Celebrities who were hacked include Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, singer Ariana Grande and model Kate Upton.
