The software that helped hack the iCloud nudes got a scary update

The software tool that was used to exfiltrate many of the photos that comprised the infamous iCloud celebrity nude dump of 2014 has received a big update. Elcomsoft Phone Breaker now supports the two-factor authentication process that Apple added as a result of the iCloud hacks.

FBI and Apple investigate nude celebrity photo hack

The FBI is investigating last weekend’s leak of nude photos of several actresses and celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The shots appeared on 4chan on Sunday, and it currently looks like the poster purloined them from the victims’ iCloud accounts. Apple also says it is actively investigating the incident. Although some of the shots are apparently fakes, Lawrence’s agent has confirmed that at least some of hers are real. A couple years ago, a Florida man was sentenced to 10 years for hacking nude photos of Scarlett Johansson and others.
