Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead was hacked along with Jennifer Lawrence today, and private photos of her surfaced.
In the latest case of celebrity hacking, Mary went on Twitter and confirmed that those were indeed her pictures.
To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves.— Mary E. Winstead (@M_E_Winstead) August 31, 2014
She then brings up the effort that it takes to create such a hack.
Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked.— Mary E. Winstead (@M_E_Winstead) August 31, 2014
While it is still unclear exactly how these pictures surfaced online, Buzzfeed has reportedly traced the images back to 4Chan, a popular image based bulletin board system that is mostly used anonymously.
