What is Rekt Celebs?
Rekt Celebs is a network that allows users to view leaked digital media that they love.
On August 31, 2014, a collection of almost 200 private (mostly nude woman) pictures of various celebrities were posted on 4chan in exchange for Bitcoins, and later disseminated onto Imgur, Reddit and Tumblr.
The images were believed to have been obtained using a breach of Apple’s cloud services suite iCloud. Apple later confirmed that the hackers responsible for the leak had obtained the images using a “very targeted attack” on account information, such as passwords, rather than any specific security vulnerability in the iCloud service itself.
The event, was referred to by media outlets and Internet users as “Celebgate” and “The Fappening“.
On September 20, 2014, The Fappening 2 – The Second Cumming was released. Less than a week later, on September 26, 2014, even more private photos of various celebrities were leaked on social, this time being called The Fappening 3. On October 05, 2014 the fourth set of photos were leaked being called The Fappening 4. Barely a week after the fourth release of photos, On October 13, 2014 more celebrity photos were leaked being called The Fappening 5- The Attack of the Fap, followed shortly thereafter by The Fappening 6 – Revenge of the Fap.
