Almost three years after the private photos of celebrity leaked online,” The Fappening 2.0″ appears to be in circulation again, including Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried on Reddit and 4chan. “The Fappening 2.0” alleged for circulating photos of female celebrities.
Clicking a nude photo of celebrity can land you in grave danger- not as a criminal but an attacker can embed malicious code inside photos and could hack your devices.
In 2014, an anonymous hacker published private photos of major celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst by hacking thousands of Apple’s iCloud accounts.

The Fappening hackers have since been sent to prison.
In October, Ryan Collins found guilty and sentenced to 18 months federal prison in contempt of hacking into the computers of more than 100 victims in 2014 in which eighteen of the people involved were celebrities.
He accessed the private photos through Gmail accounts and Apple iCloud through a phishing technique.
However, on Tuesday night private photographs of Amanda celebrities Seyfried and Emma Watson leaked online but it is unclear if the pictures are authentic.
The explicit photographs show Seyfried, performing sex acts with boyfriend Justin Long. There are multiple photos of Watson supposedly in a bathtub in a swimsuit. There are some photos and videos that the hacker claims to be of Watson shooting herself in a bathtub and masturbating, though her face is not shown.
By Wednesday, neither actress responded to the images. It’s unclear how the unnamed hacker acquired the photos.
A representative for Emma Watson has also confirmed that she is going to take legal action against the latest leak and some of the circulating photo online.
Lawyers said “Photos from clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen. They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”
The hacker also promised to release more private photos of more celebrities including, Kylie Jenner, Marisa Tomei, Giada de Laurentiis, Jennifer Lawrence, Abigail Spencer and Victoria Justice.
It is not yet confirmed on the source of leaks or how the hacker got access to the private photos of the celebrity, but the anonymous hacker claimed that these leaks are just a tip of the iceberg and they’re much to release.
