How much are nowhereelse.fr paying for each leak? Anyone know?
So about your question: "how did they get photos from iCloud?" The answer is, apparently, if you backup your phone to iCloud, the photos, videos can be retrieved from the backup file.
A found a pretty even-handed and readable explanation of the exploit used on Ars: http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/09/what-jennifer-lawrence-can-teach-you-about-cloud-security/ There was an iCloud vulnerability, and an exploit called iBrute was released the day before the breach (yesterday). Apple has since patched it (early this morning). It was a kind of brute password attack. It looks like they went after celebrities. It wasn't a mass password grab of random...

 Good practice run. You're now prepared for the real Fandroids. Battle stations: Sept 9 is around the corner.
 Stop blaming the victims when their privacy is breached. Apple, how could you?Now I'll only trust my secrets to Google. /s
