Emma Watson may have been targeted in yet another hacking scandal. The actress, who was previously threatened in 2014 by hackers after making a speech about feminism, is today facing new reports that there are private images of her floating around on the internet, The Telegraph has reported.

Rumours are circulating on Twitter and Reddit that there are pictures of her on the "dark web" – a network that often allows users to illegally exchange information or images without identifying themselves. It has also been said that the photos are on 4chan, the online-messaging board where a number of previous hacks have been revealed.

"There may be a few more names added to that list but these are the big two," someone wrote regarding intimate photos of both Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried being found. "Don't want to break any Reddit rules so no links right now but there should be some really good drama over the next few days."

This is not the first occasion Watson has had to deal with a hacking threat and last time, no images actually surfaced. Therefore, there is hope that both she and Seyfried – who is currently pregnant – will not have their privacy breached in any way.

Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried Are Victims of the Latest Private Photo Hack

After rumors started spreading online that private photos of Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried were hacked, a spokesperson for Watson confirmed to The Telegraph that yes, pictures of the actress were stolen. But, the rep clarified, they were not nudes. In fact, the pictures in question are "from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago." Watson's rep also told The Telegraph that lawyers have been contacted.

Unfortunately, this is just the latest wave of photo theft; 2014, as you may remember, was the year of "The Fappening," when dozens of celebrities' nude or partially nude pictures were leaked online, including those of Gabrielle Union and Jennifer Lawrence. The perpetrator has since been sentenced to prison, but countless others have sprung up in his place, often using hacking to punish women who speak out against exactly this behavior, as Watson did. After decrying the invasion of privacy and speaking at the U.N., she was inundated with threats of a nude-photo leak. It never happened, but trolls, it would seem, have now found something to circulate with these images from a fitting.

This is a good time to remind everyone that private photos should never see the light of day, no matter what is captured in it. Even looking at leaked pictures is never OK. It doesn't matter that you didn't do the hacking yourself, and it doesn't matter that you're not paying for the pictures. You have no right to view these images.

Every click and every download creates a demand for more leaks, but let's say your friend offers to just text you naked pictures of a celebrity. Can you take a peek, just out of curiosity, and still be a good feminist/ally? No, you cannot. This isn't like listening to a leaked album (something that was eventually meant for public consumption) or checking out paparazzi pictures (when celebrities are in public and know they might be photographed). This is something closer to a creep climbing into your neighbor's bedroom, hiding in her closet, taking pictures of her getting undressed, and then volunteering to show them to you. It doesn't make a difference whether the creep took the pictures or found them buried in her sock drawer; they aren't the creep's to give out.

Watson and Seyfried are the victims of a crime—namely, theft—and if you consume what was stolen, you are an accomplice. Don't hide behind the First Amendment here, either, or claim journalistic intent. There is no news value in a young actress trying on clothes, and you're free to publish art you make, not art you stole.

Emma Watson Taking Legal Action After Photo Hack

Beauty and the Beast and Harry Potter star Emma Watson is reportedly taking legal action after private photos of her were stolen and posted online.

A spokesman for the actress says the photos show her trying on various outfits, according to BBC News. 

"Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen," her publicist said to the BBC. "They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further."

Unfortunately, incidents of women in the public eye being personally violated by hackers have become commonplace.

Watson's story comes on the heels of an announcement that another female star is taking legal action over unauthorized images. Attorney Lisa Bloom is holding a press conference Wednesday to discuss reports that "revenge porn" featuring her client Mischa Barton is being shopped. 

Earlier this year, actress Lucy Hale publicly told a hacker who stole nude photos of her to "kiss my ass," and her attorney reportedly sent a warning letter to the site who posted the photos.

The largest incident in recent memory is the massive 2014 celebrity nude photo hack. At the time, both Gabrielle Union and Jennifer Lawrence spoke out about it. In the past few months, two men were sentenced in connection with that crime. Both men were facing up to five years in prison, but were sentenced to nine and 18 months.
