A new batch of apparently hacked celebrity nudes appeared on Reddit and 4chan this morning, just weeks after last month's massive leak of celebrity nudes.

Both websites took the photos down shortly after they appeared online, according to TMZ. Some of the names of women who might have been victimized include Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo, Aubrey Plaza, Hayden Panettiere, Leelee Sobieski, Lake Bell, Mary-Kate Olsen, Avril Lavigne, Emma Stone and a few potentially underage Disney stars. Kaley Cuoco and Jennifer Lawrence, who were victims of last month's attack, were reportedly revictimized in this latest leak.

So far none of the latest victims have commented on the leak.

Kardashian gave a comment on the last incident, telling E! it was a good reminder for everyone to tighten up their security: "I think it's a wake-up call for people to make sure they have every privacy setting. It seems like there are a lot of people that love to spend their time hacking peoples' information and that's just a scary thing."

And this week Cuoco spoke to Jimmy Kimmel about the moment she found out about the nudes. She said she found out through Google Alerts, then sent an e-mail out to her family explaining what happened. Her "Big Bang" costars helped her put together a fake pixilated naked photo so she could make a light joke about the leak for her fans: "It was just a really bad situation. But, I took it in my own hands and made a joke about it because, you know, what are you gonna do?"

The FBI is continuing to investigate the last leak.
