LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens and Rihanna may be the latest celebrities whose nude photos have leaked online.
Racy photos resembling the stars were posted on Saturday morning. They were immediately removed by Reddit and the image-sharing site 4chan as part of its new copyright infringement policy. Gabrielle Union, Mary-Kate Olsen, Avril Lavigne, Hayden Panettiere, Lake Bell, Leelee Sobieski and former Disney stars Aly and AJ Michalka are a few of the other potential victims.
A video of Aubrey Plaza and additional images of Jennifer Lawrence and "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco were also allegedly released on Saturday.
Additionally, early Sunday morning, nude photos were also reportedly leaked of Rihanna. Amber Heard also apparently became a victim of the leaks on Sunday.
This comes less than one month after revealing images of a crop of other A-listers, including Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst, were stolen from their personal Apple accounts and posted online. As many as 100 stars were targeted in the massive celebrity nude photo leak.
The incident is currently under FBI investigation. Apple also investigated the leak, determining that the iCloud accounts of the celebrities were compromised via a "very targeted attack," but neither iCloud nor Find My iPhone were breached.
Both Kardashian and Hudgens have been the target of hackers before. The reality star was reportedly one of several stars who had personal information posted by hackers in 2013. Additionally, Kardashian's sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007.
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star weighed in on the hackings earlier this month.
"I think it's a wake-up call for people to make sure they have every privacy setting," she told E! News. "It seems like there are a lot of people that love to spend their time hacking peoples' information and that's just a scary thing."
Hudgens was embroiled in a nude photo scandal in 2007 during her Disney days after starring in "High School Musical 2."
Meagan Good, who also saw photos leak of her, posted on Instagram on Sunday to slam those who were sharing the pictures.
