Upton, Verlander Among Victims Of Hackers Targeting Apple's iCloud Service

Hackers have gone after Apple's iCloud storage service and posted up extremely private photographs of celebrities and athletes. Among them are St. Joseph native and supermodel Kate Upton and her boyfriend, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander. Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence was a victim, prompting her spokesperson to call the release of the nude photos "a flagrant violation of privacy," adding they plan to prosecute anyone who posts the images. Photos of actresses Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele and singer Ariana Grande were also posted on several websites after the hacking. Winstead and fellow actress Victoria Justice spoke out on Twitter last night, with Justice saying the photos said to be of her are fake and Winstead noting the pictures were taken years ago by her and her husband in their home. Upton and Verlander have not commented.
