A gang of hackers who collected and traded nude pictures of female celebrities by routinely breaking into Apple's iCloud system were the source of private photographs leaked online, new evidence shows. Private photos and videos of more than mostly female American and British stars were released on the internet on Monday from the 4chan website, sparking condemnation from the Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence and other actors including Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton and Briton Jessica Brown Findlay. Chatroom transcripts show that "OriginalGuy", a member of the gang who has now gone on the run, boasted that the hacking of accounts belonging to Lawrence and others "is the result of several months of long and hard work" and that "several people were in on it". Other chatroom transcripts show that the gang had offered nude pictures of female celebrities and athletes for sale, and others offered to "rip" the iCloud backup accounts containing photos for anyone once they were given their user name and password.
