1. Eva Longoria is the latest celebrity to speak out about her experience of privacy invasion, claiming that Apple employees accessed personal information to make contact with her.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, Longoria said: “I’ve had a lot of people breaking into my email.”
When asked whether she’d been hacked, Longoria said: “My Mac email. Not hacked – just go get it from the stores and I had a big problem with that.”
Longoria claimed she was then contacted by staff who would say “‘I made a dress and I want to send it to you. I work at the Apple Store here in San Antonio.’ And I’m like… What? Did someone give out my email? Or my phone? ‘I saw your phone number from your profile, I just wanted to call and say hi, I’m a fan.’
“There are a lot of privacy issues.”
Apple has not yet responded to the show’s request for comment.
2. Longoria’s claims come just days after a massive hacking scandal over the leak of nude photos of numerous Hollywood celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence.
Apple was drawn into the scandal after it was suggested that the photos were accessed from the firm’s storage service, iCloud.
Yesterday, Apple released a statement saying it had found no systems breached in relation to the nude photos leak.
It said: “After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the internet. None of the cases we have investigated have resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems, including iCloud or Find My iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved.”
