The FBI is now helping out in the investigation of the cyber crimes against JLaw and other celebs

Agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been assigned to track down the cyber criminals responsible for leaking compromising images of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upon online.
Scandalous pictures of the two celebrities, along with other female stars such as Ariana Grande and Kirsten Dunst, caused a massive stir on the Internet when they surfaced on Sunday.

Lawrence's representative was the first to condemn the acts of the anonymous hacker, calling them "a flagrant violation of privacy", whilst confirming that the authorities have already been contacted.
Upton's publicist also followed by threatening legal action.

On Monday afternoon, officials at the FBI confirmed they were looking into the case. A statement released by the Bureau's spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says: "(The FBI is) aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter. Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time."

The compromising celebrity photos appeared online after a hacker stole them on numerous Apple iCloud accounts.
