A hacker stole thousands of photos from Pippa Middleton's iCould account


Thousands of personal photos from Pippa Middleton's iCloud account have been reportedly stolen by a hacker, according multiple British media outlets including The Sun and Daily Mail.

Of the 3,000 images stolen, they include photos of Middleton's sister, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) and her children, Princess Charlotte and Prince George.

London police investigating those claims have made arrest in the case, according to The Sun.

The newspapers both reported the hacker, under the pseudonym of "Crafty Cockney," was trying to sell the stolen photos for the equivalent of $65,000. 

The images also reportedly included pictures of Middleton at a wedding dress fitting as well as naked images of her fiancĂ©, James Matthews.

Despite the obvious privacy breach, not everyone sided with the younger Middleton sister.

Kensington Palace hasn't publicly commented on the theft.

This isn't the first time Apple had been targeted by hackers. Two years ago, a hacker broke into the iCloud service and leaked a dozens of personal photos from numerous high-profile celebrities' accounts including Jennifer Lawrence.
