Some folks may be joking about it, and others may be refreshing their browsers for more photos of Kaley Cuoco nude, but the authorities are taking this week's celebrity nude photo leak VERY seriously.

In a statement released yesterday afternoon, a spokesperson for the FBI addressed what has become known as The Fappening and said:

"The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter. Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time."

Jennifer Lawrence Loves Selfies
J-Law really loves posing for nude selfies. Unfortunately for her, someone broke into her private collection.

On Sunday, shots of Jennifer Lawrence nude, Kate Upton topless and many other famous females striking illicit poses hit the Internet.

A 4chan user bragged that he broke into the cell phones and computers of these women and that he is in possession of endless pictures and videos as a result.

Lawrence and Upton have both released statements that vow legal action against anyone publishing their stolen photos.

Elsewhere, an Apple spokesperson told Recode.net the company is "active investigating" whether or not their iCloud system was hacked as part of this leak.

Kirsten Dunst clearly believes Apple is to blame, as images of this actress have also gone viral and she has placed the blame squarely on Apple's wealthy shoulders.

"Thank you iCloud," Dunst Tweeted yesterday.

Lena Dunham, meanwhile, has labeled the hacker a sex offender and urged folks not to view the X-rated pictures.

"When you look at these pictures, you are violating these women again and again," the Girls star wrote. "It’s not okay."
