Three weeks ago hundreds of nude celebrity photos were leaked onto the internet. Dubbed The Fappening, the collection included pictures of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jessica Brown Findlay, and Kaley Cuoco, with the majority of the personal images apparently obtained from hacked iCloud accounts.
Apple reacted to the leak by increasing iCloud security, 4chan, the site where the images first appeared, took the opportunity to introduce a DMCA policy, and Reddit, one of the main places people went to in order to view the photos, banned Fappening subreddits. But despite all that, just as everything appeared to be calming down, there’s been a fresh wave of leaked images.
It’s not clear yet where the new photos have come from -- if they’re part of the original leak, or a new one -- but the images appeared briefly on 4chan and Reddit before being swiftly deleted. However, as you know, once something has appeared on the internet it can never be fully removed, and the new photos are freely available on other sites across the web.
