    SportDriver. 100% correct. People always go for the big boy. Why are there so many windows hacks? Because it has by far the largest user base and therefore people attack it most. Why did they go for iCloud? Because by far iPhone has the largest user base (shut up Fandroids this is not a discussion) so iCloud got hacked. Why are there so many Android viruses.... because by far it is the worst OS out there lolol. Honestly theres a fine line between "open" and "*****" lol

    That's not entirely true. I have a ton of nude pics and videos in my OneDrive. "Remember how they get synched automatically from my phone," as long as they don't end up in a public folder your ok. Microsoft tends to scan the public folders since they are.... Well...... Public.
    Go read section 3 of the OneDrive terms of use and you'll see you're not right. Doesn't take much. They scan ALL content with software applications and If they only suspect (SUSPECT) that you may have something infringing their rules they then rely on human operators to dig into the issue (it means checking on your data). It may be right or you may end up digging my wive pics dressing like a really dirty nurse OR something else you're not supposed to see.
    Leaving this aside, i explained that treating adults like little children (and next generations are growing already trained like this so they don't know what freedom is) is not a wise path to take. You may realize this in the future; it won't take long for you to understand.

    As I could not agree more but, after about 2 weeks of doing this every day, I am sure it will be disabled for most people....

    Yea, I have the 2 level security, esp on private stuff, so I log into my live account, then wait for MS to send a text with a number, type it in, then I can access my content....

    Dam, I could not or would not do that every day ! The fact of the matter is, Nothing is unhackable, if someone with the skill set wanted to get in, guess what? they will.

    It's like people in high crime areas always leaving lights on around their house, it will not stop a crime but, it will der them from actually doing it. So a stronger password at least would be the best bet for most of these people....

    You live in and learn....

    I have not seen them, where are all these "stolen" images anyway ? :)
    You should be using the Microsoft Authenticator app. Then you don't have to wait for the text.

    Well, you're mis-interpreting the clause here, or misunderstanding the technology.

    The clause in question here is at the end of section 3
    In many cases Microsoft is alerted to violations of the Code of Conduct through customer complaints, but we also deploy automated technologies to detect child pornography or abusive behavior that might harm the system, our customers, or others. When investigating these matters, Microsoft or its agents will review Content in order to resolve the issue. This is in addition to the uses we describe in this Agreement and the Privacy Statements.
    I've emboldened the part in question. Microsoft has an automated system that scans peoples content (private or public) for content with a known signature, created from a database of known child pornography/abuse images. This is done to combat the sharing of images by "rings" of abusers. There's nothing here to indicate that Microsoft or anyone else has algorithms to detect nudity.

    Microsoft is at pains to tell you that your data belongs to you. The will inspect your content in the same way that they would do as part of a virus scan, but this doesn't mean that they have the right to take your data as an when they please. There's been cases in the news where Microsoft have point blank refused to release emails to law enforcement agencies, they've also had to work extremely hard in bringing to justice one of their own ex-employees who leaked early Azure builds (and this was a Hotmail account, Microsoft had to work within it's own privacy rules).

    Your data belongs to you, no one else.

    Be aware that discussion regarding the location for the leaked images is off-topic and people should not be asking for the location (in the same way that people shouldn't ask for pirated software etc).

    Still if you didn't have anything to steal you don't have to worry about anything.

    I'm a collage student at some private university. And I don't see anything that worth get hacked (except my game account lol).

    If you got some such important files like company paperwork I doubt your company competitor goes that far to steal data. As far as I know if company have a secret they didn't upload it to cloud service but create backup somewhere else.

    The thing is why those celebrity upload those photo. I don't know about they reason but I don't see any good reason to upload those hacked photo to iCloud at the first place.

    PS: Any hacker who read this please don't try hack m game account :( I I'm so poor don't make me ever poorer

    That's not entirely true. I have a ton of nude pics and videos in my OneDrive.
    Why not upload it all to iCloud, just to be super safe...? / S

    And to those saying it was hacked because of popularity: There are surely many more OneDrive accounts. Think of all the phones and tablets combined, the Windows 8* accounts, the office subscriptions that include the storage....
    Anyone know the numbers for iCloud vs OneDrive?

    And Apple says it was brute force attacks used, not the iCloud vulnerability, and are instantly believed. Yeah, I am sure they'd have admitted that and opened themselves up to a ****load of lawsuits lol.

    I think they're very close, but iCloud has a few more. Last reports were that Apple has 300 million "active" accounts while Microsoft has 285 "active" accounts (for the record, I think that Apple, Microsoft, and Google all fudge their numbers a little bit).

    Even then, it still only happened because Apple had a huge security flaw. It doesn't make any sense to target iCloud when OneDrive has a lot of business people (who I would argue are worth a lot more than some of these celebrities).

    Haha to the best of my knowledge, they don't. The thing is, what were those people planning to do with nudes? I would assume they would sell them. I find it hard to believe that they would do it for the lulz.
