    "between May 31, 2013, and August 31, 2014, his IP address "was used to access approximately 572 unique iCloud accounts," and "in total, the unique iCloud accounts were accessed 3,263 times.""

    And to think that all he had to do was use proxies or torbrowser and he would've covered his tracks.

    The Nude-Stealing iCloud Thieves Are Sad Their Party Is Over

    "For years now, a group of anonymous friends have been stealing photos of you from your iCloud accounts and trading them on a website called Anon-IB. Apple kept it easy to steal from you up until very recently. Now the Anon-IB boys are all upset.

    To be completely clear, it's still far easier than it should be to find, download, and store naked photos of you that you thought were safe on Apple's servers: the company still doesn't require two-factor authorization for iCloud accounts. But it's slightly better.

    The minimum amount better.

    Many Anon-IB'ers agree that leak "traders" spoiled the action for the people doing the actual hacking—no one seemed to care when it was photos of college classmates, but once it became Jennifer Lawrence, they drew global attention. What was once a semi-private hobby for a small set of predatory users turned into an international story.

    "This was bound to be over at one point," agrees another. "I'm surprised it went on for a couple of years unsanctioned.""
