According to a report from The Post Millennial, users of the online imageboard 4chan allegedly hacked Hunter Biden’s iCloud backup data earlier in July via cracking the password for his iPhone.

The iPhone data hack reportedly occurred on July 9th, with political commentator Jack Posobiec making said claim on Twitter.

Colorado-based news outlet The Gazette also reported on the alleged hack, claiming that users of the online imageboard were hurriedly posting the contents obtained from the iCloud account to the website on the evening of July 9th, but website admins began quickly removing the posts allegedly linked to the hacked data.

While not going into specific details of what this allegedly hacked data consisted of, The Gazette did report that the contents were shared “on the website’s main political forum,” which undoubtedly refers to the “Politically Incorrect” or “/pol/” board on the site.

A report from the Washington Examiner regarding the purportedly hacked iCloud data read that the data “from the leak could not immediately be verified.”

Posobiec asserted in a follow-up post to Twitter regarding the matter that 4chan users were actively working to counter these censorious efforts, establishing torrents so interested parties could download this allegedly hacked data.

“4chan has already created torrents for the Hunter Biden iPhone and iCloud backups and are now seeding them. That means even if 4chan gets shut down the copies will still be out there.”

On July 6th, a mere three days prior to the alleged hacking of Hunter Biden’s iPhone, CNBC reported that Apple announced a new feature for iPhone dubbed as “Lockdown Mode,” which is “intended for high-profile users such as politicians and activists who may be targeted by state-sponsored hackers.”

Among the new features meant to protect these “high-profile users” includes disabling preview features in iMessage, curtailing JavaScript on the Safari browser, preventing new configuration profiles (a.k.a., user profiles granting access) from being installed, and blocking wired connections so that data can’t be copied from a device.

While it’s unclear whether Apple’s latest security feature for “high-profile users” is directly inspired by the contents that have been unearthed via the infamous Hunter Biden laptop, it’s hard to not envision there being some sort of connection.

Ever since the New York Post broke the story of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop in October of 2020, a steady stream of concerning emails, photos, and videos have made the rounds through the media – with the emails presenting concerns of Hunter selling his father’s influence and the photos and videos affording an inside look into Hunter’s exploits with narcotics and prostitutes.

Video relating to the aforementioned category has recently surfaced, where it appears to showcase Hunter Biden arguing with a woman – ostensibly a prostitute – about how much crack cocaine they have as it is being weighed on a digital scale.
