The Federal Bureau of Investigation has confirmed that they are looking into numerous celebrities being “hacked,”.
“The FBI confirms we are investigating computer intrusions of high profile figures,” FBI spokesperson Laura Eimiller told reporters.
“Because of the on-going nature of the investigations we are not permitted to specify the names of victims or number of victims.”
A-lister and The Avengers star Scarlett Johansson was reportedly struck by the “hackers” this week when purportedly naked photos of herself from her cell phone leaked onto the Internet.
As we previously reported, the FBI launched an investigation in March to find the tech savvy group accused of stealing naked photos of Hollywood actresses including Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Vanessa Hudgens and Christina Aguilera.
At the time, cyber-crooks were reported to have nude photos and videos of at least 50 female celebrities — which also includes Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato , Ali Larter, Busy Philipps, Miley Cyrus, Emma Caulfield andAddison Timlin — after they hacked into their cell phones and other devices to obtain the compromising images.
