More celebs caught up in hacking scandal as new pics hit the web

Just as things were dying down, a second wave of celebrities have been caught up in the naked photo hacking scandal.

Stars targeted by hackers this time include Kim Kardashian, Avril Lavigne, Aubrey Plaza, Vanessa Hudgens, Mary-Kate Olsen and Hope Solo.

The photos were posted to the site 4Chan, but with the tighter regulations brought in after the first photo scandal three weeks ago the pictures were quickly removed from the site.

Unfortunately, by the time the site's administrators swung into action the photographs and videos had already been downloaded and distributed elsewhere.

As with the first pictures, they seem to include snaps that are years old, backing up the claim that these pictures have been acquired and distributed online in secret for a long time.

The FBI are still investigating the first leak, while Apple claims its iCloud security has not been breached and that it was a targeted attack.
