Authorities

Close in on Celeb

Hacker Ring

3/17/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vanessa Hudgens met with law enforcement today over nude photos and video that were hacked from her Gmail account, and TMZ has learned authorities believe as many as 50 other celebrities may be victims as well.

Sources tell us ... the FBI is conducting a wide-ranging investigation into a ring of hackers, and agents believe all 50 celebs trace back to one person -- possibly the ringleader.

Sources say one of the other celebs is Scarlett Johansson, who had a nude picture hacked from her iPhone.

The ring has been hocking some of the photos and video to various Internet sites and others, but we're told the primary motivation is not money -- it's the thrill of hacking.

Apparently she didn't learn anything from the first time nude photos of her were "leaked". Beginning to sound like publicity stunts rather than accidents or hackers. After all when people like Paris or Kim's tapes were released they got more famous. I think that is behind those accidents or leaks. Not buying what your saying girl.

So What    

I would have to say if you take nude pictures and videos well you put yourself in the mix for anything to happen. You can not bitch because you knew what might happen if those pictures get loose. Live with it and smile the world gets to see your little bits.

Everyone ( celebs and us normal folks) should really "avoid" taking nude pictures of themselves ( why exactly are people still doing this?) but it is interesting to think that some celebs pictures were actually hacked by others and not leaked by the celebrities. Who would have thought?! HA!

This is another case of doing something totally stupid and then trying to blame someone else when it goes wrong.

Have Zero sympathy for this trollop. How many times has pictures "leaked"?? The first time she took nudies of herself she was a minor. She should be smacked and charged with child pornography. Moral of the Story you moraless trollop: Don't be a dumb whore and your pictures won't be "leaked"!

I don't believe this. If "hackers" wanted to expose these celebs, then they would have posted all these pics all at once, instead of just posting the tamer ones first, then the more explicit ones two YEARS later!

I, also, seem to think it's more of a publicity stunt. Why else would ALL of these more explicit pics be censored. She was 18 or 19 years old at the time.

The first "High School Musical" didn't come out until she was 17. She didn't start dating Zac Efron until she was 18 during the sequel to "High School Musical" in 2007. On September 6, 2007, her first nude pics came out and she was 18 at the time. In August of 2009, the next nude set of pics came out and she was 20 years old when they came out. If those pics were EVER taken while she was underage, then she would have said so...and SHE NEVER DID...all she said was it was a mistake and websites didn't have her permission to post them!
