The last few days have been full of unfortunate cases of hacking, and many stars have seen their personal photos and videos released online. That sadly includes Arrow star Katie Cassidy, who played the Black Canary for several seasons on the hit CW show.
Along with stars like Amanda Seyfried, Emma Watson, Annaleigh Tipton, Dylan Penn, Lili Simmons, and WWE superstar Paige, several photos made their way online (via Gossip Cop). Cassidy's camp has been notified of the breach but has not made any statements concerning it or if they plan on taking legal action, something that Seyfried is already going forward with. This latest batch of hacks is similar to one back in 2014, and in that case, the hacker was eventually sentenced to 18 months in prison.
Officials released a statement for the 2014 case, saying “After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet. None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved.”
You can view the official synopsis for the upcoming 'Kapiushon' episode of Arrow below.
