TMZ reported that Johansson asked the FBI to inquire how private, nude photographs, which she took herself, could have been leaked to the public.
“The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident and is looking into it,” an FBI official told FoxNews.com after they requested for a comment about the sultry actresses x-rated photos.
One of the photographs reveals Johansson’s bare backside while the second photograph is a topless self-portrait.
Other celebrities who have also been exposed like the 26-year-old Lost In Translation actress consist of: Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Hudgens, Ali Larter, and Miley Cyrus.
It had been reported earlier this year by TMZ that the FBI was getting close to discovering the tech-savvy thieves who are thought to have broken into the personal accounts of stars’ cell phones and other computerized devices where their compromising photos and videos were hidden.
If it turns out that these photos of Johansson are actually legitimate, one question remains unanswered: why would she take nude photographs of herself on her cell phone?
They could have possibly been meant for her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, or one of her other boy toys, including Sean Penn who she has dated since her marriage ended.
The senior threat researcher at the Internet security company Sophos, Beth Jones, offers what seems to be a simple suggestion to Johansson and other stars worried about becoming the victims of hackers.
“I hate to point out the obvious, but not taking nude photos on your phone is your first line of defense. Remember Polaroids?” Jones told ABCNews.com.
