The Royal Family targeted by hackers who threaten to expose photos

The Royal Family have been targeted by a group of hackers who threaten to expose documents and pictures which prove members of the family have had plastic surgery.

According to The Sun, the hackers claim to have documents and corresponding graphic photos which they have stolen from a plastic surgery clinic.

The clinic is popular with celebrities, and other than the group’s unfounded claims, there is no evidence to suggest any royals have used the services.

London Bridge Plastic Surgery has confirmed that they have been victim to a cyber attack, and the police are investigating.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, the clinic said: “We can confirm that the Clinic has been the victim of a cyber attack.

“We took measures to block the attack immediately in order to protect patient information and we informed the Metropolitan Police who launched an investigation.

“Regrettably, following investigations by our IT experts and the police, we believe that our security was breached and that data has been stolen.

“We are still working to establish exactly what data has been compromised.”

To prove that they had stolen confidential information, the hackers sent The Daily Beast graphic photos showing pictures of patients, some containing nudity.

The Metropolitan Police say: “On Tuesday, 17 October the Metropolitan Police Service was informed of a data theft from a cosmetic surgery clinic in London.

“Detectives from the Met’s Organised Crime Command are investigating.

“There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.”
