Alleged attack of Hunter Biden’s iCloud account by a 4chan user

At this stage, we advise readers to take individual rumors and memes that appear to be blooming out of this alleged hack with a grain of salt. This is not to say that this material should automatically be presumed to be false (or true). Rather, it’s simply the case that the 4chan message board has a long history of delivering up questionable content, none of this material has yet been verified as authentic, and partisans on both sides of the political divide are likely to try to recast it to their advantage. (For example, earlier today we debunked a doctored photograph unrelated to the 4chan leak that was apparently being circulated as a “counter-meme” to discredit that leak.

The contents of an iCloud account linked to an iPhone and iPad owned by US President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, allegedly leaked in a “data dump.” Unconfirmed rumours circulating on the 4chan message board suggest that Hunter Biden’s iCloud account was breached, making different files from the son of American President Joe Biden’s iPhone and iPad allegedly accessible. Unverified reports that Hunter Biden’s iCloud account was breached and compromised are rife on the 4chan message board, allegedly making numerous files from his father Joe Biden’s iPhone and iPad accessible.

Highlights

  • The 4chan thread was first posted around July 8 on the /pol/ board on the website, a board named “Politically Incorrect.” The title of the 4chan thread was, “Hunter Biden offline iPhone Backup.” The post and its comments included various unverified allegations, some of which were lurid. The thread also contained other names and various unconfirmed conspiracy theories about several different figures.

  • According to The Daily Dot, which reported on the alleged “data dump,” the specific thread on 4chan, which contained quite a bit of adult content, claimed to have uncovered somewhere around 450 GB of various “voice mails, videos, voice recordings, [and] pictures,” some of which featured both Hunter and the president.

Separate from the iCloud, iPhone, iPad, and laptop rumors, NBC News reported days before the 2020 election about a “fake ‘intelligence’ document” about Hunter that was “disseminated by close associates of U.S. President Donald Trump.” The 64-page composition appeared to be “the work of a fake ‘intelligence firm’ called Typhoon Investigations, according to researchers and public documents,” NBC News published.

In the past, there have been no shortage of rumors surrounding Hunter’s personal activities, included alleged drug use and videos with sexual activity. We previously reported on various rumors regarding a laptop apparently owned by Hunter, which became a larger story ahead of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

The story about Hunter’s iPhone and iPad allegedly being hacked via his iCloud account is still developing. We will continue to monitor the situation for future reporting.
