But I am surprised at how dirty some of them are.  Most are the standard mirror selfies...but a few are...I don't know...maybe "gross" is the right word.

And if the ones you saw were all grainy...you saw different photos than I did.
I saw some pretty shocking mpegs. I am now a fan of that Findlay chick. She's a pretty good sport...

Apple Media Advisory

Update to Celebrity Photo Investigation

We wanted to provide an update to our investigation into the theft of photos of certain celebrities. When we learned of the theft, we were outraged and immediately mobilized Apple’s engineers to discover the source. Our customers’ privacy and security are of utmost importance to us. After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet. None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud® or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved.

Yup, nothing like a celebrity having a "forgot my password" question that can easily be googled...

Heh. "Street where you grew up?" Check. "Mother's maiden name?" Check. "Favorite movie?" Check. The list goes on and on…

There's nothing that online services do to verify that, Smart money is to make up answers and keep a master paper copy of all answers in a lock box. Someone can find out the real info, but providing false answers kills that.

True.

 

I always try to choose the weirdest questions; things I don't regularly share people.

-People are stupid for taking nude selfies (and so many of them JESUS I WAS BORN 20 YEARS TOO EARLY).
-People are dumb for not locking their shit down (even though Apple and Facebook and the like start off with default settings that encourage you to share every goddamn thing you have with every goddamn person, and not everyone is gonna be a computer whiz enough to secure everything).
-No one's ever gonna give a shit if I look.
-I am 17 years old and I have no soul (fair enough).
-Famous people should expect to have their privacy violated.
-Everyone else is already looking.
-NIXON DIDN'T WANT THE WATERGATE TAPES RELEASED AND THIS IS KIND OF LIKE THAT.

I think I fall in the fourth category.

I've been putting non answers to security questions for years. I though it was common practice to do so I guess I run in geeky circles. I've started to use my knowledge of a second language to make things a little easier.

Changed my Apple password - super strong - 16 alphnums, all my security answers and turned on 2FA.

My photos have always been turned off for iCloud and backup. Yeah, I'm kind of a Luddite. But sometimes I occasionally take a photo of official documents.

How will my pictures of my dog Skippy playing cribbage be leaked to the internet if I don't use the Cloud?

Isn't that list missing the most important and obvious answer of all??

 

"I just want to see Jennifer Lawrences boobies."

 

Wouldn't that rank pretty high up on the list if it were a choice?? ;)

The paragraph following the list pretty much says just that.

LOL ... whoops you're right.

I think that about covers every last excuse, none of them valid. The only reason to peep those nudes is due to curiosity and horniness, and those factors usually override every other ethical concern. It's a strange impulse, given that the internet already grants you access to millions of naked people. You could see a new naked person every day for eternity and still not make a dent in the pile. But there's that male impulse to turn over every last stone. Oh, I haven't seen HER naked yet! Consider the effort made to obtain some of those photos. That's a lot of risk just to get your nut off. Shit, I freak out when I see Google Incognito mode warn me that my ISP can still track my shit. YOUR ISP IS WATCHING YOU MASTURBATE. Jesus.

 

At some point, we should just all look at each other nude and then get on with it. No need for this endless titty chase.

Nothing we could see of her that she hasn't released herself for profit.
