Lily Canter 9th January Another year, another nude celebrity photo hacking. In we saw a slew of privacy attacks on female celebrities as private images of Emma Watson, Amanda Seyfried and many more were illegally disseminated online. The Fappening 2 was in effect the sequel to The Snappening which saw hundreds of thousands of celebrity Snapchat photos and videos leaked on 4chan in But it is not just celebrities who have fallen foul of malicious hackers who seek to embarrass, exploit or blackmail victims in return for personal or financial gain.
Whether it is revenge porn threats from ex-partners or sophisticated hackers breaking into personal social media s to steal explicit images, cybercrime of this nature is spiralling. In the Crime Survey for England and Wales included computer misuse offences for the first time — which include unauthorised access to personal information — and recorded a startling two million crimes. But with much of this crime seemingly invisible, unless a celebrity is involved, victims are often suffering in silence unaware that they are far from alone. It was horrible.
She first noticed something was wrong when her phone kept receiving texts with new verification codes for her iCloud . I also went onto Snapchat and it kept logging me out. This happened about five times over two weeks. An with a username made up of random s and letters then tried to add Jade as a friend on Snapchat and sent her a message. But then minutes later another random tried to add me. This time the hacker sent Jade a topless photo of herself as evidence that they had something to blackmail her with.
Jade believes it was a photo she had sent to someone via Snapchat in the past and it had automatically synced to her iCloud . It properly freaked me out. Despite the blackmailer claiming they knew her, Jade is convinced it was a random hacker rather than an act of revenge porn. It was too sophisticated to be anyone I know. The new added me within minutes. It was like it was computer generated, like a phishing tactic.
Despite being intimidated Jade refused to be beaten by the hacker and did not give in to their demands. Instead she deleted and blocked the and then changed her Snapchat settings so if someone was not her friend they could not communicate with her. I have had no problems since.
I should have tried to take photos of the messages or screenshots. She also advocates standing up to blackmailers because once one demand is met they are likely to keep escalating things. Tell them to fuck off and delete them. They are probably doing it to dozens of women at the same time. I bet it happens to thousands of people and they are too embarrassed to say anything or are too scared to do anything.
A spokesperson for Leicestershire Police said if a person is being blackmailed in any way, it should be reported to the police. It would then be investigated under the most appropriate laws — which would depend on the nature of the offence.

Use tools like Last Pass which generates a complex password of characters and saves them for you.

The following year password details from million LinkedIn s were being traded on the dark web.
Using the tool Have I been pwned? Under UK law it is illegal to make unwarranted demands with menaces in order to attain person gain or project loss on another person. It does not matter whether the demands are possible or in what manner the demands are made. In a year-old boy was jailed for a year for blackmailing two year-old boys into sending explicit images of themselves. A new Revenge Porn law introduced in also makes it illegal to disclose of private sexual photographs or films without the consent of an individual who appears in them. Sexual material not only covers images that show the genitals but also anything that a reasonable person would consider to be sexual, so this could be a picture of someone who is engaged in sexual behaviour or posing in a sexually provocative way.
It is also illegal under UK copyright law to screenshot and share Snapchat picture messages without consent. Lily Canter 9th January Another year, another nude celebrity photo hacking.
