The statements came in response to the release of photos purportedly of dozens of celebrities in various states of undress. The photos first appeared on an image sharing site called 4chan. The FBI issued a statement Monday saying, "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. It's not clear how the photos were leaked, but Apple released a statement saying it is investigating whether any of its systems were compromised. Meantime, a representative for Ariana Grande called her allegedly leaked photos "completely fake. Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead took to Twitter to indicate that the photos of her wer real, saying she had previously deleted the photos. Representatives for other celebrities who allegedly were hacked didn't immediately return calls for comment.
Ariana Grande is the latest celebrity that gets hacked, though this time no nude photos are involved and the attack is not part of the Fappening saga that impacted so many singers and actresses in the US and worldwide. While no hacking group or individual claimed the attack, the Instagram account is believed to have been breached by a fan of Selena Gomez and Kylie Jenner, as reported by clevver. The main evidence pointing in this regard is some of the messages posted by the hacker, who called for Ariana Grande fans to follow two different accounts whose profile picture showing the two stars. Of course, this is just a guess, and at this point there is no confirmation that the attacker is a fan of a different celebrity or he only tried to boost the number of followers of his other accounts. Ariana Grande, however, is no stranger to hackers, as the singer was a victim of the Fappening scandal that had the nude photos of a long list of celebrities being posted online.
