Sources connected to the hackers tell TMZ ... the cyber-crooks currently have 100 active email addresses of celebrities, politicians and sports stars.  We do not know the identity of the sports stars or politicians, but they are all high-profile.

TMZ broke the story ... the hackers have snagged nude photos and videos from female stars including Vanessa Hudgens, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Ali Larter and Demi Lovato.  There are no male celebs on the list.

The FBI knows the identity of the ringleader, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

As for Vanessa Hudgens, our sources say the hackers may have obtained the pictures and videos through a friend who betrayed the actress.

Wonder why the Hacker is wearing gloves with the cut off finger tips? It's not like they're not going to finger print the laptop. And the mask, what's up with that? There's only a few handful of people that know how to activate the embedded camera in the computer without you knowing it.

Are you actually saying there are nudes of them, or are you saying they were hacked? You've been very vague on this point and each post seems to give a different story.

It's bad enough having to watch Charlie Sheen's rants and actions on TV. Here is the perfit case of controlled release of information to fatten his wallet at the public's expense. I don't blame CBS or the show's producer's for firing him for desertting his responsibility to his contact. After the third day of this farce; I moved on to better and more meaningfull concerns, such as the New Zealand and Japan earthquakes.

These celebs deserved it IMO. So much for being careful about your personal stuff. If they're so embarrassed of these personal pics, why even click them in the first place?

This hacker guy shouldn't go public either. Now we'll never get to see those images :((

I don't have any sympathy for these people.I think the governement should put the hackers to work for them insted of putting them in jail. China does that and thats why they are considered one of the best hackers in the world.

Too bad he didn't hack into the investment banks and Federal Reserve a few years ago,when both of them were screwing the American public, and probably still are.
