    Yesterday a massive theft of photo data from celebrities made its way onto the internet. iCloud was named as the source of the data, though no information was provided as to how it was exploited. Regardless, it made headlines. Apple is aware and investigating.

    I have just read how there was a way to brute force the password.
    A Python script emerged on GitHub that had a sideways door via 'find my iphone' that did not timeout.
    Though this is apparently closed now.

    Once a nefarious individual has your icloud password I assume your photostream is up for grabs.

    I do agree with posts that suggest we should all know better and ignore these 'leaks'.
    Privacy is a two way street.
