Tim Allman reports on the hacking allegations surrounding private photos of several celebrities, including actress Jennifer Lawrence.
Apple has confirmed that some celebrities’ iCloud accounts were broken into, but says it has found no evidence that this was caused by a breach of its security systems.
Instead, the firm suggests perpetrators carried out their thefts by deducing victims’ log-in credentials.
The statement follows the online publication of intimate pictures of about 20 personalities.
Actress Jennifer Lawrence has confirmed a leaked topless photo of her was real.
There had been speculation that the images were obtained due to a vulnerability in software that allows users to locate missing iPhones, since it had allowed unlimited password guesses.
But Apple has indicated that this was not the case.
