Actress Anne Hathaway’s photos were leaked online earlier on Wednesday. It is believed to be part of an ongoing cyber attack on celebrities and their personal accounts.
According to HT Hathaway is the latest victim in a string of attacks pointed toward celebrities which harkens back to the 2015 ‘Celebgate’ hack which targeted many famous figures. As many as 500 private photos were leaked during that time. A-listers such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton were among the victims.
