La Puente man steals 620,000 iCloud photos in plot to find images of nude women
August 25, 2021
A Los Angeles County man broke into thousands of Apple iCloud accounts and collected more than 620,000 private photos and videos in a plot to steal and share images of nude young women, federal authorities say.
Chi’s agreement to plead guilty comes as Apple is facing criticism from privacy advocates over its plan to scan iPhone photos that customers store on iCloud to flag images of child sexual abuse for potential reporting to law enforcement.
Investigators soon discovered that a log-in to the victim’s iCloud account had come from an internet address at Chi’s house in La Puente, Bossone said.
