1. Back on June 23rd, the Windows and Linux application DeepNude, which was developed by an anonymous person known only as Alberto, was made available for download online.
2. The free version of the app had the "nude" images covered partially with a large watermark, which could removed in the $50 paid version of the app. Paying additional $50 removed a smaller "FAKE" watermark seen in image #5.
3. On June 27th, Vice Motherboard featured a story on the app, titled "This Horrifying App Undresses a Photo of Any Woman With a Single Click." Within a few days several other news outlets covered the story including The Verge, Vox and CNET.
4. On June 27th, the official website crashed numerous times due to high traffic volume. Later that day, Deepnude creators announced they were permanently shutting the app down due to concerns of potential misuse.
5. The software, based on a neural network, automatically edited photographs of people to make them appear fully nude. The app only had support for female naked bodies, although an update or a separate app for male bodies was also planned.
6. "The world is not yet ready for deepnude" hell, I could have told you that. Although this website was shut down, users still continue to share copies of the app.
