Regarding the recent iCloud scandal:
I think I have a couple things that I want to voice on this.
One, the fault is clearly with the hacker, not the people who stored the photos. The celebrities should not be shamed for their private photos. That much should be clear.
Two, don’t make yourself a part of the problem.
And three, I think from a network security point of view, we can all learn a lesson from this. Don’t store your valuables in someone else’s house. iCloud is a hosting server, if in fact that is where the photos came from, a bit of common sense could have easily been applied to avoid the problem. NOTE: I am NOT blaming the celebrities, I am just saying that the public in general is so uninformed when it comes to technology that we all have a giant blindside. Technology is a wonderful thing, but it is also a terrible enemy. And they say that you should know your enemy better than your friends. How can you protect against it if you don’t know your weaknesses?
