Between august 2014 and October 2014 nude and topless pics of over 100 celebs have been leaked on the website 4chan. Hacker sold them to the community, paid via the anonym currency bitcoin, which is often used by hackers. Within minutes, the internet community created a new sub on reddit, called "The Fappening" where all the photos have been uploaded.
How did they get private nude pics of celebs like Scarlett Johansson, Hayden Panettiere or Ariana Grande? They simply gained access to their icloud accounts by sending them fake apple mails. Therefore, they just sent them phishing mails, got access to their accounts and saved the nude images and sex videos. They then uploaded it via the tor network on sites like reddit and 4chan. Although the original posts got deleted within a few days the leaks were copied and released on other sites. Thus, the fappening was able to continue
Celebrity Fappening leaks from hacked iCloud accounts
Apple instantly claimed that it was not a hack, because they did not use any security issue. Except the security issue that the leaked stars are not aware of phishing mails. The hacked stars, specially Kaley Cuoco, Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgens, tried with the help of their lawyers to ban the leaked nude pics out of the internet. This was the proof that those nude and sex pics are real!
Some of the leaked pics are non-nude, just selfies in lingerie and pics with some friends etc. However, most of the celebs have had fully nude pics and sex tapes on their icloud accounts. Surprisingly the most popular celebs where those who had the best content on their accounts. Jennifer Lawrence has had over a dozend nude pics on her icloud account, super model Kate Upton even had sex tapes and clips where she masturbated on her account.
Other big stars like Bar Refaeli & Cara Delevingne had pics of them masturbating. How could the internet community not freak out and start the fappening!? So far, they had only seen some sextapes, like the one of Paris Hilton. Leaks of more than hundred celebs came totally unexpected.
In July 2016 the third and last hacker, named Edward Majerczyk, has been judged for hacking the celebs and leaking their nude images. As all of them have admitted being guilty, they only got suspended sentence of 6 to 12 months. The stolen nude pics and the fappening will always be in our archive, whether those hacked celebs want it or not ;)
Over the last couple of month, more private photos of more or less well known celebs got leaked. Even Meghan Markle for victim a fee weeks before her wedding. Russian hackers released a nude video of Prince Harry's wife. If the queen has seen that video and had a chat with Putin about it? I doubt it!
Rumors say there are more unreleased sex videos and nude pictures of other celebs. Which one would you like to get leaked? What about Emma Stone or Emma Watson? The Fappening would go on! We will see if those hacked content will be published one day as well, we hope so!
Update: Hackers have leaked nude photos and videos of Emma Watson. Looks like our dream is coming true!
