Student's Nude Photos Leaked
To Facebook By iPhone service Centre, Apple Now Paying Her Millions Of Dollars
#Apple paid millions of dollars in settlement money to a woman in Oregon after explicit pictures from her #iPhone were uploaded to social media by repair technicians. The images, along with a sex video, were uploaded to the woman's Facebook profile and made to look like she had shared them on purpose. She was only made aware the content had been posted when friends contacted her to tell her about them. She sent her iPhone in to an Apple-approved repair contractor called #PegatronTechnologyService in California on January 14, 2016. And while the tech giant settled for a multi-million dollar amount, its name was never explicitly mentioned in the suit. The purpose in doing so was to keep the matter confidential. However, attorneys in a separate and unrelated case regarding Apple and Pegatron referenced the incident in their legal filings and named the company as 'clearly Apple'. Apple confirmed the incident and said it has since strengthened its vendor protocols "We take the privacy and security of our customers' data extremely seriously and have a number of protocols in place to ensure data is protected throughout the repair process, an Apple spokesperson said."When we learned of this egregious violation of our policies at one of our vendors in 2016, we took immediate action and have since continued to strengthen our vendor protocols."
