Kim Kardashian and Hayden Panettiere targeted in nude photo scandal

Kim Kardashian and Hayden Panettiere are among the stars who have been targeted in the second wave of the Hollywood hacking scandal.

Nude pictures of the reality TV star were leaked online on Saturday (20Sep14), three weeks after cyber criminals stole saucy snaps from cloud storage devices belonging to a host of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kirsten Dunst.


Actress Panettiere was also among those targeted in the second big leak, with others reportedly including Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Bosworth, Leelee Sobieski, Lake Bell and soccer star Hope Solo.


Newlywed actress Gabrielle Union also fell victim to the hacker, and has released a statement condemning the leak.


The statement reads, "Our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband (sports star Dwyane Wade) and myself, have been leaked by some vultures... I can't help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimised, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide... For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes - We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong."


Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation launched a probe following the first leak in late August (14).
