Hackers' app combs your private photos for nude images

Putting nude photos online, even in password protected areas, is just really unwise. Last year over 100 celebrities learned that the hard way when their nude photos were hacked from their iCloud accounts. But just in case you need any more proof to convince your kids, grandchildren or anyone else to never upload any compromising images, no matter how "secure" they think they are, here you go.

The FBI just arrested and charged two men in an absolutely despicable scheme. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the two men developed software that bypassed security settings on the popular photo website, Photobucket. But just wait, because this story gets worse!

The government alleges the men sold the software to others for a very specific reason: to comb through Photobucket accounts looking for private nude photos. Now many of us would seriously question the wisdom of taking - much less uploading - compromising nude photos, but that still is no excuse for strangers gawking over private photos.

In this case, it looks like the FBI is not messing around. These guys are facing some very serious charges. But just wait until you see how many years their scheme had been going on!
