Washington: Scarlett Johansson may be the latest victim of celebrity hacking after nude photos of the star were posted on the Internet.

The FBI has said that it is well aware of the alleged hacking from the actress’ phone and is investigating the matter.

“The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident and is looking into it,” Fox News quoted an FBI official as saying.

The hackers have posted private cell phone snaps of the 26-year-old on Buzzfeed.com (NSFW) that the star allegedly took of herself.

One of the pictures show Johansson draped in a towel, taking a picture of her exposed backside reflected in a mirror, whereas another shows the Golden Globe winning actress in a topless portrait.
