Several major stars have been forced to take legal action against hackers, after a number of x-rated pictures were stolen and leaked online.
Celebrities including Miley Cyrus, Stella Maxwell, Kristen Stewart, Tiger Woods and his ex Lindsey Vonn all had naked or partially naked photos leaked on the internet.
According to The Sun, the photo of Tiger, 41, shows him naked in a bathroom – and is believed to have been stolen from the phone of his ex Lindsey – who also had racy pictures published online.
A spokesman for Lindsey said: “It’s an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos. She will take necessary legal action to protect her rights.

“She believes hackers and the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent.”
A fake nude picture of Nicole Scherzinger also appeared online, and she has reportedly asked lawyers to get them removed from the site.
The news comes after Edward Majerczyk, from Chicago, was sentenced to nine months’ in prison back in January for hacking up to 30 celebrities, including Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence.
