    So buying a BlackBerry automatically means you are secure or is there something like BES to be activated?

    No, but since buying a BlackBerry comes with a free "no iCloud" dark ages membership,.. then yes.

    I think the only way you can hack a BlackBerry is by working for the NSA. That or physically stealing it. I may be wrong.

    Not sure why people expect privacy if they store private parts in the cloud, clouds are visible to millions

    But a lot of them weren't even using iPhone's so turning it into an iPhone and iCloud thing is pretty borderline anyway. Due to my *cough* research, some were most certainly using Android devices, which points to some sort of other 'cloud storage' hack.

    Celebs are people too, and like most people, they tend to use crappy passwords. They'll use their dogs name as their password, and then share their dog's name with the media. Some "super-skilled" "hacker" will read the article and try "parishilton@icloud.com" with the dog's name as a password, and BAM! - Paris's account has been "hacked." Except it wasn't even hacking; it was taking advantage of very poor HUMAN security. The phone itself was almost certainly not hacked, but rather a cloud account which the phone was linked to.

    And that's not the kind of thing that owning a BB will protect you from. If you can guess someone's password, any security they put on top of that is irrelevant - the password gets you right in anyway.

    What I don't understand is people's obsession with "celebrities" I guess bread and circuses will always work. I wish people would open their eyes a little more and look past all that.

    We went to a restaurant tonight where you would order your food from an iPad that was sitting at the table. The screen said, "Swipe your credit card to begin." I said to the Hostess, "Is there an option to pay with cash? I'm not going to be running my credit card through an iPad that several other people have used."

    I was then mocked for quite a while by our friends with which we were having dinner. (and I was Paying) I explained my reasoning, and was mocked, showed my Z10 and was mocked, did a demonstration of my Z10 and dropped chins, but went back to being mocked when I paid the bill with cash. (why are you mocking the guy who's feeding you?!?!)

    As we're walking to the car park, one of them sees the article on Variety about this hacking, and goes into panic mode. We are in L.A. and she works for a celeb PR firm. Monday is supposed to be a day off, but I have a weird feeling she'll be at her desk. Ha ha ha...

    Blackberry, baby.

    Celebrities are always exposing themselves to the public for more recognition and with that you loose some of your privacy which comes with being famous. Look at what just happened to a famous golfer where the media had figured out his pass code on his iPhone and the next thing you know, it's all over the Web.

    To me security begins with the end user and having passwords that are short and have information that are associated with their personal information is just asking for trouble.

    One of my clients recently made a comment when I was typing in my password on my BlackBerry that wow you have a long password!! At which I commented, there is a good reason for that!!!!

    A couple of celebs said they are old pictures so I suspect it was all one service that they were taken from but people forget about the old storage/accounts when they move devices if they go across brand.

    Apple products to iCloud, Android to Google (mostly), MS to OneDrive, etc. A lot of people start new accounts when they change device, some because they have to.

    99% of celebs are all the same person just with a different face. I rarely ever find them attractive.

    Also, i dont think BB would just be like, "Wouldn't have had your pictures leaked if you were using BES"

    Mary E Winstead tweeted that the photos had been deleted ages ago....
    101 celebs accounts got hacked and I'm sure that number is rising
    While there is no denying that some celebs get "their accounts hacked" to leak these types of pics, not everyone is a Kim K or Paris Hilton.
    Jennifer Lawrence's reps have stated that will prosecute anyone who posts her photos which were.
    I'd like to see some backlash at Apple for this huge security breach from these celebs, since this happened yesterday already, and I still haven't seen any official word on the subject from Apple

    Most of them wasn't even aware the are automatically uploading pictures to the cloud in first place. You know how it goes with most people when they buy something new... setup is mostly next,next, ok, yes, yes, ok. without to much reading.
    They deleted selfies and nude action photos from devices but they didn't know its not enough.
