Rihanna is the latest celebrity to be targeted by celebrity hackers. Nude photos of the pop star was leaked online over the weekend.
Fortunately for Rihanna a single Google search by anyone can dig up similar photos of her. But she is not the only victim in the latest round of leaked photos, Meagan Good and Gabrielle Union also falls victim to the plot.
Last month hackers breached celebrity iCloud accounts on Apple via a technique called fishing. Apple has since tightened security and launched an investigation.
The FBI is also investigating the hacking of celebrity iCloud.
Rihanna has not commented on the leaked photos but other celebrities say they have contacted their lawyers.
Gabrielle Union is among the latest round of celebrities to be targeted by hackers as nude photos of the actress hit the net last weekend.
Union has also confirmed that her data on her iCloud was also breached after hackers leaked several graphic images of her online.
The photos are currently making the rounds on Twitter, but Gabrielle Union is speaking out and she has a strong message to the hackers.
“It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures,” Grabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade said in a joint statement.
“I can’t help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide,” the couple added.
“For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes – We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”
Actress Meagan Good and singer Rihanna were also targeted in the latest rounds of leaked photos.
Grabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade got married in August in Miami.
Meagan Good has also posted a statement on her Instagram page.
A new social blog in Jamaica has raised many eyebrows as well as drawn the eyre of several women islandwide after discovering naked pictures and videos being leaked on the website without permission.
Over the last week, social media has been buzzing over the website, jamaicangirlsexposed.com which has posted several XXX rated picture women ranging from entertainment figures to business women, as well as several citizens. The identities, addresses and Facebook contact information of these women have been released on the website, triggering several safety concerns.
One of the women affected by this infamous blog is prominent Reggae artiste, Denyque who suddenly appeared on the page later Monday night. A nude photograph of the Can't Breathe singer headlined jamaicangirlsexposed.com along with a picture of her kissing a male in a bedroom setting. The administrators of the website, who remain unknown, demanded that Denyque pay JA$50,000 in exchange for the removal of this material.
Angered by these developments, Denyque contacted law enforcement officials as well as her legal team on Tuesday in an attempt to discover who's behind this website and hold them responsible for their actions.
PICS BELOW ARE NOT THE NUDE ONES THAT WERE POSTED ON THE SITE
Denyque released a statement on Tuesday afternoon detailing what led up to these events and what she plans to do going forward to stop this from happening.
The release read in part, Sometime last week, a rouge blog appeared on the blogosphere and began posting revealing, nude, and personal photos of women. During this time, the operators of this shameful blog threatened to reveal similar photos of me which they obtained by hacking into my personal computer and phone."
"The photographs were taken sometime in 2009 and were NEVER sent or otherwise distributed to ANYONE. They have remained my private property."
"Let me be CLEAR that these photographs were also taken when I was in a committed relationship and that both myself and my partner, at the time, remain equally puzzled and disappointed at the surfacing of these photographs."
"My management team contacted the operators of the blog on Friday of last week, and asked them to remove the photos or face legal consequences to which the operators of the blog, under the name "Nadine Stewart", responded with scoffs and laughs."
"My manager emailed them again and asked them to remove the photos, to which they responded and a MALE called from an "unknown" number, with a demand for $50,000 to remove these photographs. I have refused to comply. There is simply no way I will stand for blackmail and extortion. Absolutely none, and I have since reported the matter to the Jamaica Constabulary Force."
According to Denyque, not only will she stand up for herself and try to dissuade similar attempts to damage her reputation, but she'll become the outspoken representative for fellow victims.
"What about the other ladies on the blog? How do they begin to re-assemble their lives after these hackers and scammers wreak havoc? What happens when this wretched person decides that $50,000 is no longer enough money? What happens when the blog CONTINUES to post these illegally obtained photos and continues to destroy people’s lives? I will not stand for that. I will not support it," she said.
"I am prepared to be the voice of all the innocent women who are being exploited, I refuse to sit back and be silent! It is clear that the operators of this blog harbour a great hatred for women and the idea of privacy that all consenting adults are entitled to. It needs to be shut down and the operators jailed."
"I have accepted that as a person in the public eye, I am held to a higher standard of judgement, but I do not accept that I am not allowed the same privacy and space. I take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all the persons who have offered me their support, compassion, love and well wishes. I feel truly honoured and blessed. Notwithstanding I will continue to be an advocate in defence of the innocent women who have suffered at the hands of this cruel act."
The website features previews of pictures and videos they intend to release of more women going forward and even threatened to unveil naked photos of former Intense host turned Reggae singer, Pepita Little before backing off that claim.
