5964

An Apple iCloud leak is said to have leaked intimate photos and videos of British Athletes, out of which 100 pictures were related to a female athlete without clothes. Why that athlete took pictures of her body without clothes and stored them on a cloud platform remains a big mystery.

However, all the leaked photos & videos of the British athletes are available on the dark web and on some X rated websites.

But the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), a cyber arm of UK’s GCHQ has issued a statement early today saying that anyone who accesses personal data of others unauthorized will be treated as a criminal and is urging all online users to secure their accounts with a secure password

NCSC is also urging online users to use two factor authentication and is advising people to use a strong password that consists alpha-numeric characters tucked with 1-2 special characters

Apple has released no press statement on this matter as authorities are still probing the incident.

NOTE 1- The information leak news of British Athletes comes just a day after the cyber attack news leak on British UK Football Club Manchester United.

NOTE 2- All you smart phone users out there, please do not configure our phone settings in such a way that it automatically backs up all your data to the cloud. As this will help in keeping your intimate moments out of reach of cyber criminals.
