Anonymous users on 4chan claim photos were stolen from firm’s iCloud app
After the dust appeared to have settled from the storm created by the recent celebrity iCloud hacking scandal, a new wave of nude celebrity photos have been leaked online.
The previously unseen images are alleged to feature reality TV star Kim Kardashian, American goalkeeper Hope Solo and actresses Kaley Cuoco and Vanessa Hudgens.
They also reportedly include Nashville star Hayden Panettiere, singer Avril Lavigne and actress-turned-fashion designer Mary-Kate Olson.
It comes just three weeks after naked photos of actress Jennifer Lawrence and ‘100 other stars’, including supermodel Kate Upton and actress Aubrey Plaza, were published online.
Although most of the latest victims were named on an original list of targeted celebrities, posted by a hacker to the anonymous image-sharing forum 4chan last month, Kim, also 33, was not.
According to TMZ, the images were reportedly uploaded to 4chan and Reddit, but the latter quickly removing them due to its stringent policy on hacked photographs being shared on the site.
While a representative for Kim declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline, the snaps which allegedly feature her have garnered much attention.
They show a woman who resembles the star taking nude selfies in a bathroom setting.
It is not the first time Kim, who is married to rapper Kanye West, has had to deal with racy material being leaked to the public. In 2007, her sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray-J was published online.
The reality star filed a lawsuit against the tape’s distributors, Vivid Enetrtainment, which was finalled dropped when she settled for $5 million.
The same year, Vanessa was forced to issue an apology after private photos of her were leaked online at the time she was appearing in Disney’s High School Musical 2.
According to E! Online, nude photos allegedly showing actresses Leelee Sobieski and Lake Bell were also uploaded online this morning.
Three weeks ago, compromising images of dozens of celebrities – including model Cara Delevingne and Jessica Brown Findlay – emerged online after a hacker reportedly gained access to their iCloud accounts and stole their pictures.
While it appears that she was unaffected by the attacks, actress Cameron Diaz recently expressed her thoughts on the scandal while in London to promote her latest movie Sex Tape.
