Tim Cook Releases Statement in Regards to iCloud Photo Hacking
Apple CEO Tim Cook has finally released a statement in regards to the celebrity iCloud leaked photos incident and sat down with The World Street Journal for an exclusive interview. In the interview, Cook again stated that the iCloud system was not breached but also announced that new security measures will be rolled out for iCloud to prevent a similar incident from happening again. According to WSJ,
"When I step back from this terrible scenario that happened and say what more could we have done, I think about the awareness piece," Cook said. "I think we have a responsibility to ratchet that up. That's not really an engineering thing."
The Cupertino-based company has noted however, that most consumers do not use this two-factor authentication. But they will be pushing and encouraging users to turn on this feature when the new iOS is released. Do you think Apple is to blame for the celebrity photos that were released over Labor Day weekend? Let us know in the comments below.

Why should Apple be blamed? The ones who are at fault here are the ones doing the wrong. I mean at least apple is trying to do something to help prevent it from happening again but you can't say it was there fault. It's like saying if someone breaks into your car is it the cars manufacturer fault that someone decided to break your cars window no right. So why should any one blame apple.

It's always easier to blame an authority (Apple) for an issue than to assume responsibility for ones own actions.

I think because they didn't stop brute force hacks. Tell me would you build a customer website and then allow multiple tries to guess the password. Or was that miss reported

Using a device connected to the net to take, store photos of this kind is never a great idea but blaming apple is just too easy for them
