A gang of hackers who collected and traded nude pictures of female celebrities by routinely breaking into Apple‘s iCloud system were the source of private photographs leaked online, new evidence shows.

Private photos and videos of more than 100 mostly female American and British stars were released on the internet on Monday from the 4chan website, sparking condemnation from the Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence and other actors including Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton and Briton Jessica Brown Findlay.

Chatroom transcripts show that “OriginalGuy”, a member of the gang who has now gone on the run, boasted that the hacking of accounts belonging to Lawrence and others “is the result of several months of long and hard work” and that “several people were in on it”.

Other chatroom transcripts show that the gang had offered nude pictures of female celebrities and athletes for sale, and others offered to “rip” the iCloud backup accounts containing photos for anyone once they were given their user name and password. The iCloud backups come from the stars’ iPhones, which automatically store photos online for up to 30 days or until they are downloaded.

The revelation comes as the FBI and Apple started investigating the security breach, the most serious ever to affect the iPhone maker and a serious blow to its efforts to push new devices expected to incorporate mobile payment functions next week.

There are more than 800 million iCloud accounts globally – but the chatroom transcripts suggest there is now a growing semi-professional trade in “ripping” iCloud accounts, posing a serious problem for Apple’s security profile.
