'The Fappening' Hack: The Story So Far And Recent Updates

After 'The Fappening' hack spree, in which a hacker, who now claims to be a group of people, hacked several popular celebrities' iCloud storages and leaked their nude pictures and explicit videos on the internet, while promising people more pictures and videos in the near future, the people thought the hack spree is over as FBI got involved. But 'The Fappening' is far from over...

The man who leaked the pictures and videos has posted another message on 4chan(see picture above), and this time, claims that he is not alone in the hacking and had help from several other people. He says he will be moving to another location and continue leaking more pictures and videos, and that his team is accepting donations from two platforms only.

The FBI has been involved in the case and are trying to track down the hacker behind "The Fappening" leak.

Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton are very serious about the issue and plan to get the hacker caught and punished at all costs. They have been receiving support from many other celebrities, those a victim of the hacks and those who are uncompromised as well. Kate Upton's boyfriend, Justin Verlander has spoken about the leaked pictures of himself and Kate Upton and said that he wants to keep his private life "private".

The images have been removed from many places around the internet, but the people who had downloaded them are now releasing them on torrents and other secure sources, from where the files cannot be taken down, and they have been getting countless thousands of downloads per a single torrent.

Downloaders of the leaks started donating to a cause in "thanks" to the leaks, and raised 5000 Euros in donations, but the cancer charity cause eventually returned the money because of the reason it was donated.

The internet is now waiting for "The Fappening" hacker's next move and the release of further pictures and videos, while the FBI is trying to stop the man, and many are boycotting the pictures as well, calling it "invasion" of privacy.

As with celebrities speaking out about it, such as Mary E. Winstead, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton(through their spokespersons), Arianna Grande and Victoria Justice calling them fake, now Kirsten Dunst has joined the row as her pictures were leaked in the recent hack, and has tweeted that "Thanks iCloud", in a sarcastic remark showing dismay over iCloud's security.


Victoria Justice has spoken on the topic once more, and although still has not called the pictures real, she calls it an invasion of privacy and that she will take serious action against the leaked pictures, which she, earlier, called fake.
