Last month, nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence and dozens of other female celebrities were posted online following what appears to have been a large-scale effort to hack into the phones and computers of famous women.
Both the FBI and the websites upon which the photos were posted announced that they would be taking immediate action to ensure that such a widespread privacy violation would never happen again.
Now, it seems those efforts were ineffective, as nude photos of Kim Kardashian and several other celebrities were posted on 4Chan and Reddit early this morning.
Actress Vanessa Hudgens and US women’s soccer team goalie Hope Solo were also targeted by a hacker who may or may not be the same person responsible for the first round of stolen pictures.
The photos were removed from both websites shortly after they were posted, but Kardashian is believed to be pursuing legal action, nonetheless.
TMZ reports that it is unclear when the photos were taken, though Kim is not wearing a wedding or engagement ring in any of the shots.
Both Hudgens and Solo were targeted by hackers in the past, and they successfully lobbied to have their private photos removed from various websites.
Kardashian is no stranger to such scandals herself, as the Kim Kardashian sex tape that was leaked online back in 2007 helped to make the reality star a household name.
