Cyber Security Expert Discusses Hacked Celebrity Photos

With the rise of celebrity’s photos getting hacked, Vinny Troia, Certified Hacking Forensic Investigator and CEO of Night Lion Security, discusses this issue with Rebecca Jarvis on ABC World News. Celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and many others have all experienced these awful hacks. Apple announced that there were no hacks on their systems but on the celebrity’s user names, passwords and security questions.

Night Lion Security is a St. Louis based Digital Forensics firm, Troia explains how hackers can find a lot of the information to hack them through their Wikipedia pages. The hackers can find the latitude, longitude and altitude of where these photos were taken and they make lots of money doing this. The only solution to these hacking problems is to create unique passwords and changing them frequently.
