Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Kaley Cuoco among seven other celebrities have fallen victim in the latest leak of hacked celebrities nude photos.

The list of hacked celebrities nude photos leaked online this Saturday contains Avril Lavigne, Lake Bell, former Disney stars Aly and AJ Michalka, Mary-Kate Olsen, Aubrey Plaza and Hayden Panettiere.

Early Saturday morning alleged nude photos of the starlet celebrities were leaked on 4Chan and instantly trending on Twitter. 4Chan took immediate action removing the photos as part of 4Chan’s new policy regarding copyright infringement.

The most recent leak of nude celebrities photos can likely be given credit to the hackers who initially leaked nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Victoria Justice, Kaley Cuoco, among a number of others. The FBI has said they are already investigating the previous leaks along with the most recent matter.

This is not the first time nude photo of actress Vanessa Hudgens have been leaked online, if the newest photos are confirmed to be her, this will be the third time nude photos of Hudgens have been leaked online without her consent.

Numerous sources have confirmed that representatives for Kim Kardashian have declined to comment, but the popular celebrity weighed in with her thoughts on the previous nude photos leaked last month. “I think it’s a wake-up call for people to make sure they have every privacy setting,” Kardashian told BBC Radio host Nick Grimshaw. “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.”

Representatives for Vanessa Hudgens and other celebrities have denied comments as well.

As 4Chan was swift to remove the celebrities photos, a new subreddit of “The Fappening” has sprung up on reddit housing a number of the stolen photos. The previous subreddit hosting links to the first set of leaked photos was ban from the site due to a number of legal reasons.

The origin for a number of previous hacks was confirmed by Apple, stating celebrities iCloud vaults were hacked due to weak passwords, allowing attackers access to their personal photos.

A number of questions regarding deleted photos and other cloud storage providers have yet to be answered.

Update: Nude photos of actress Countess Vaughn, more well known as Kim Parker have been leaked online. If the Countess Vaughn/Kim Parker leaks are related to the most recent Kim Kardashian leak remains unknown.
