British police are currently investigating the alleged illegal interception involving Pippa Middleton and her iCloud account, which is rumored to have private photos of her sister Kate, Prince William and their sons George and Charlotte.

According to this information, computer hackers may have stolen about 3,000 personal photos from Pippa Middleton’s iCloud account, including that of her wedding dresses and private parties.

The Sun and Daily Mail reported that an anonymous seller had contacted them to offer the images for sale. The Sun newspaper said that this individual was contacted through a service encrypted with the pseudonym “Crafty Cockney” and said to have photos of her financial executive James Matthews, naked.

The anonymous seller also asked for a minimum of 50,000 pounds for the release of these photos, while also stipulating a deadline of 48 hours. Kensington Palace has made no comment, while the London Metropolitan Police confirmed on Saturday that they did receive a report on the alleged act of piracy. They also arrested a 35 year old man in Northamptonshire County, northern England, on this illegal interception, although he was later released on bail while the investigation continued.

Middleton’s lawyer, Adam Wolanski said the theft of the photos has caused his client significant unrest. He also added that it was a well planned, targeted attack and not a crime that was committed in the spur of the moment. Follow these developments, a British judge today banned the publication of these leaked photos.

iCloud users around the world too, have started to question its security due to this particular icloud hack. While Apple continues to assure users of regular patches and updates, what is essential to comprehend is that this, and a considerable lot of the past celebrity hacks that we have caught wind of previously, did not most likely happen in view of some basic security defenselessness in Apple’s iCloud framework. At whatever point you put touchy data in the cloud you have to consider the most pessimistic scenario situations. It is always better to keep the sensitive data from the cloud.
