WARNING: This story contains graphic photos. Proceed with caution if that sort of thing disturbs you.

The FBI is investigating "a series of computer intrusions" that targeted celebrities, including, apparently, pictures of a semi-naked Scarlett Johansson allegedly hacked from her mobile phone.

Nude pictures of the 26-year-old "Iron Man 2" beauty (left and below) surfaced on the internet Wednesday.

FBI spokeswoman Ari Dekofsky confirmed that the agency is investigating the person or group responsible for a computer intrusion of high-profile figures.

However she said that, "due to it being an ongoing investigation, we are not at liberty to confirm specific victims or a number of victims."

In March, there were reports that hackers managed to get private information belonging to 50 female celebrities, including Johansson. Others included Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Ali Larter and Demi Lovato.

Johansson's spokesman did not return messages left at his office Wednesday.

Another more revealing photo of the actress can be seen below. Be forewarned: It is not safe for work or delicate sensibilities. The curious may scroll down.

And that’s either an understatement, or that not too many of them have yet to meet the so called “desired exposure”, many want deliberate exposure when faced with cameras, like losing their slip. Many do it because a gap needs to fill for the gossip column, and others just want to do it for popularity while still very young, or missed the very young mark and want to do it anyway. It is either join the popularity club or take a chance of not joining one and be called “she is too geeky”, “She is only a dork”. So it seems the verdict is “I’m In”

Doesn’t the FBI have better things to do? Let the damn celebrities hire their own investigators for bs like this. They pose for these pictures and then feel violated because someone looked at them? Give me a break. What a load of crap. It will be news when a “celebrity” has NEVER taken a nude photo but instead chooses to “make it” on sheer talent alone.
