Despite the fact that celebrities have incredible security and protection around the clock, they are unfortunately not immune to being hacked. From stealing illegal photos to hacking into their cloud services, here are some celebrities who’ve been hacked.
Back in 2005, hackers were able to successfully guess Paris Hilton’s password (which just so happened to be “Tinkerbell”) and released her personal photos onto the internet.
Several of Scarlett Johansson’s nude photos were uploaded to the internet back in 2011 by Christopher Chaney. Chaney was arrested, plead guilty to hacking into Johansson’s computer, and was eventually sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Tiger Woods and his former girlfriend, Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, had their photos leaked following a hacking attack in 2017.
Jennifer Lawrence and Rihanna
Jennifer Lawrence and Rihanna were two of many celebrities who had their nude photographs stolen in a massive iCloud hack back in 2014. George Garafano pled guilty to hacking into the celebrity’s iCloud accounts and was sentenced to eight months in prison.
In 2014, Miley Cyrus’s iCloud account was actually hacked by a fan. Then, in August 2017, Cyrus’s account was hacked again and nude photos of her were released online.
Jessica Alba’s cellphone was hacked in 2010 and photos of herself taken while she was pregnant ended up online.
