Security experts said the hacking and theft of revealing pictures from the Apple iCloud accounts of a few celebrities might have been prevented if those affected had enabled two-factor authentication on their accounts.

And there you have it. Charles called it from the beginning. These are just female (it’s all women) celebrities that are very naive about internet security. A lot of these gals have not uttered a word (except maybe through their attorneys), but a few have acknowledged that nude pictures of them surfaced online yesterday.

My two favorite reactions:

The men that leaked the pictures are disgusting pigs and should be prosecuted. I hope Apple can get to the bottom of the weaknesses in their cloud storage. I also read at the Los Angeles Times that the FBI is investigating the matter. The damage is done, though.

If you read a bit further in the article, Apple itself very well may be shouldering a significant amount of blame here as well. Not only was Apple’s two-stage security model extremely obscure to most users - it required research into their support documents to even know about it, their default security for the iCloud service had a hole in it large enough to drive a tractor-trailer through:

The as-yet unknown attacker had one other thing going for him: Apple allows an unlimited number of password guesses. Normally, systems limit the number of times someone can try to log in to a system with an incorrect password before the account is locked down entirely. Apple has since fixed that aspect of the vulnerability.

“The attackers never should have been allowed to make an unlimited number of guesses,” Kindlund said.

Justin Verlander (pitcher from the Detroit Tigers) was hacked as well which included nude photos of Kate Upton and himself.
