Only yesterday photos of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Aubrey Plaza, Vanessa Hudgens, Kaley Cuoco and others had surfaced. Cut to a day later and there are two topless images of Rihanna and a large 50 unclad pictures of actor Amber Heard that have been made public.

According to reports, the images come from privately held accounts and are in succession to the leaked images that broke out in August, just three weeks ago. The initial set saw images and videos released from hacking attempts targeting Hollywood actresses like Jennifer Lawrence, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Kate Upton among others.

The pictures are believed to have been culled over a period of time through phishing attempts that compromised details of user accounts on Apple's iCloud service where the images had been uploaded or backed up.

4chan and Reddit, the two websites where these images were widely circulating in the initial row, were quick to take down the images before they could blow up like last time.
4Chan pulled the images down, labeling them as inappropriate content. 
Reddit, where the earlier leaks formed a separate subreddit after the incident became known as The Fappening, was also quick on taking the images down.

The subreddit has been banned after multiple celebrity lawyers threatened with legal action if the imaged were kept alive.

Apple, on its part,  has denied that there was a breach in the iCloud service and has additionally implemented newer two step security features to protect user data in the future. It has been implementing stringent security features pertaining to user privacy on its devices and minimizing external breaches.

The New York Post reports they equated these leaked private pictures to “hate crimes.”

It was revealed on Saturday that racy pictures of Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgens had hit Reddit and Twitter.

Hudgens is reportedly shown fully naked, but has declined to comment.

Hudgens, sadly, is no stranger to having her privacy grossly invaded. If these are in fact photos of the 25-year-old actress, this will mark the third time topless  photos of Hudgens have been released to the public without her consent.

Sources close to the former High School Musical star told Hollywood Life she is worried the new photos may damage her career.

“She has learned to accept that it happened before and there really isn’t anything she can do about it,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “She is still upset, and now that it has happened again, she is even more rocked by it because she really wants to be known as a serious actress.

“With these new photos out, in her eyes she thinks it taints what people might think of her when it comes to producers and decision-makers for her career.

“She is very upset and is looking to have her people do something about it more strongly this time.”

An 18-year-old Hudgens was forced to apologies for taking unclothed photos in 2007 after these photos were leaked.

“I want to apologise to my fans, whose support and trust means the world to me,” she said at the time. “I am embarrassed over this situation and regret having ever taken these photos.”

 TMZ reports “over 50 topless pictures” of Johnny Depp’s fiancee Amber Heard have also now leaked online on 4chan and Reddit including one topless photo that features her holding up a sign with a message to Johnny Depp.

The gossip website says the pictures of Heard “may be the biggest invasion of privacy since Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton were first hacked”.

More stolen photos of Lawrence and Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco were also released yesterday along with alleged photos of Avril Lavigne, Lake Bell, former Disney stars Aly and AJ Michalka, as well as Mary-Kate Olsen, Emma Stone and Hayden Panettiere.

This latest leak is likely the work of the same hackers who released unclothed photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Victoria Justice, and an underage McKayla Maroney that the FBI is already investigating.

Meanwhile, a rep for Kardashian declined to comment, but the 33-year-old reality star weighed in on the hackings earlier this month, telling E! News, “I think it’s a wake-up call for people to make sure they have every privacy setting. 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.”

Within the past month, similar pictures of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst had been part of this massive leak.
