Apple said Tuesday a "targeted attack" on some user accounts led to the release of nude celebrity photos but that it found no breach of its cloud storage system. "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," Apple said. "None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple's systems including iCloud or Find my iPhone. The statement was the first since the release at the weekend of private, nude pictures of dozens of celebrities including actress Jennifer Lawrence and top model Kate Upton.
