Celebrities are as vulnerable to cyber threats as any normal people are. It’s because of their precious fame and public image, they are more likely to be cyber hacked. They can be targeted in ‘spear phishing’. Scammers trigger an email or social media content made to look like coming from a regular friend and deceive them to give up personal or sensitive information.Especially mobile devices are more prone to phishing attacks due to their small form factor than PC.
During the Ashley Madison hack, attackers were mostly aiming at embarrassing people. They sent out millions of her clients’ emails online. The worry for the agencies that hired her is that compromise of her inbox can compromise many of their client-agency
personal exchanges. All in all, it’s a matter of mass defamation.
Attackers often don’t have to put a personal touch to hook their prey. Fear of being exposed can be enough to make them take a desperate more foolish step. Resultantly, the cybercriminals break in and finish the rest of the invasion.
The most audacious attack was when 130 Twitter accounts, including former President Barack Obama, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was hacked. In the summer of 2016, Mark Zuckerberg accounts were hacked using password guessing software. Similarly, actors using their film titles as passwords get attacked regularly.
