She might be focussed on the preparations for her up-coming wedding to actor Liam Hemsworth later this year, but it appears Miley Cyrus might be busy doing damage control on the mother of all wrecking balls this month.

According to the Metro, the 24-year-old has become the latest victim of 2017's celebrity hacking scandal as nude photos of her have reportedly been stolen and posted on the website Celeb Jihad.

Reports suggest the hackers involved – whose 'work' is described as 'explosive celebrity gossip from Islamic extremists' on Google – are allegedly the same as those who wrongfully obtained private images of new mother Amanda Seyfried last month.

The news comes a month after photos of ELLE cover star Emma Watson was targeted, and photos of her in her underwear at a clothes fitting stolen and published online.

Speaking about the power of the internet and social media, Watson recently told Entertainment Weekly they are 'equal parts are depressing and terrifying, and equal parts are empowering and thrilling'.

Earlier this year, a Chicago man was sentenced to nine months in prison for hacking the electronic accounts of 30 celebrities - including Jennifer Lawrence – and stealing private information, including nude videos and photos.

Following Lawrence's cyber attack in 2014, the Oscar-winning actress told Vanity Fair: 'It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime.'

That's exactly what it is – a crime.
