Apple Patches Exploit Linked To Celeb Photo Links

(Undated) -- Apple says it has patched a weakness that hackers may have used to gain access to a series of recently-leaked celebrity photos. This, after nude photos of celebrities including Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence were posted to the website 4chan and quickly spread. Philadelphia-based attorney Jennifer Brandt says there's really only one fail-safe way to prevent embarrassing images from being leaked.
Aside from Jennifer Lawrence, other leaked personal photos appear to show Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst and Selena Gomez. Hackers reportedly breached Apple's "Find My iPhone" service to access the photos.

Philadelphia-based attorney Jennifer Brandt says you should never consider personal images or messages 100-percent safe from hackers. Attorney Jennifer Brandt says creating the right password and not using it for all over your accounts is essential. Play Clip
