Hackers Leaks Nude Images of British Female Athletes On Dark Web



New Delhi:  Four top female athletes from the UK are exploring their next options to get their objectionable leaked pictures removed from the internet. These images were accessed and uploaded by a hacker who has also targeted hundreds of female sports stars and celebrities.

According to cyber crime experts, the hack happened due to a leak in iCloud or via a phishing attack. Reports said that one of the athletes had close to 100 images stolen while another had more than 30 pictures and videos leaked.

According to cyber experts, such leaks and attacks has grown exponentially where a criminal tries to get access to private picture to extort money or for other financial gains.

Experts recommend to turn on two-factor authentication where it’s available. It becomes difficult to track and delete objectionable pictures from multiple platforms as it is uploaded at 10 new placed if one is deleted.

Apple, who own iCloud, have so far not commented on the leak. The news comes on the same night Manchester United confirmed they had been targeted in a cyberattack in what the club described as ‘a sophisticated operation by organised cyber criminals’.
