I recorded 720p not good material for myself on my Android phone for 1 min or a little more. Then I delete it immediately. I didn't send the video over the internet, I just kept it on local memory and then I delete it.

Is it possible for a hacker to get the video from my phone and leak it to the internet to **** sites in this very small amount of time? I checked my cloud services like Google drive, Dropbox, etc. They did not upload anything.

Could hackers search for Android users among 1.5 billion users and choose randomly one and get his/her data like an attack on the mobile phone?

Potentially, yes it is possible that any data on a connected device has been sent to a 3rd party. any device can be compromised to do things that its owner does not wish it to do (like send data or store deleted data).

Has it happened to you? I very much doubt it.

  • No ,the file deleted after one minture how it could be sent to 3rd party under these condition that I mention @Topher Brink – Jacor Oct 6 '16 at 17:12

    Easily. If you had malware already on your phone, if you had some sort of application that makes backups on a regular basis etc... But like Topher said, the chances are slim to none. Sure it could have happened, even under the conditions you described, but the chances are so ridiculously unlikely that you really shouldn't be concerned. – INV3NT3D Oct 6 '16 at 17:19
  • No it seems you didn't understand the question @TopherBrink – Jacor Oct 6 '16 at 17:20
  • You say all users who have naked data there is a possiablity to be leaked to the internet – Jacor Oct 6 '16 at 17:24

    Anyone who has a connected device is susceptible to having their information compromised in some capacity. Full stop. The naked data is infinitely more interesting, mind you, but chances of this happening is a different question entirely. Unless you're Jennifer Lawrence, I doubt anyone cares about your video (no offense). You are one of many fish in a great big sea of nakedness. – INV3NT3D Oct 6 '16 at 17:26

Once the file is deleted, you are kind of safe. They could do data recovery and try to get the file (which is really hard, and is probably more torture than getting bad pictures leaked). You want to rewrite the drive w/ zeros and ones. You should be safe, it isn't very practical to send every single android users' (or whatever device you are using) videos to a single server, then write some kind of AI that searches for adult material. I highly doubt that would be very profitable or practical for any criminal to do. You are pretty safe, as long as no one knows.
