A judge in the U.K. on Wednesday ordered a ban on the publication of photos stolen from the iCloud account of Pippa Middleton. A 35-year-old man was arrested Saturday on suspicion of the hack, in which about 3,000 pictures were stolen from Middleton’s iCloud account.
The order was made after Middleton and her fiancé James Matthews filed a court case against the “person or persons unknown” responsible for the hack, the Associated Press reported.
Last Friday, Britain’s Sun and Daily Mail newspapers reported an anonymous seller got in touch with them to sell the photos for $65,000. The hacker, who identified himself as “Crafty Cockney,” sent two photos of Middleton and Matthews to the Sun to show that the images were authentic.
“This isnt (sic) an auction it will be a simple process of the highest bid,” the seller reportedly said.
Some reports said that the pictures showed Middleton at a wedding-dress fitting and other photos include her sister Kate Middleton and her sister's children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Pippa and Matthews got engaged in July and are reported to marry sometime next year.
