After photos of several female Hollywood celebrities were leaked on the internet, male celebrities now fear that they may become the next targets of the nude celebrity photo scandal.

A number of male celebrities from Hollywood have reportedly started adopting strict measures to keep their private pictures safe from hackers, TMZ reports.

The entertainment website spoke to a number of male stars, who fear that they could be the next victims of the nude picture hacking.

According to the report, several young men in Hollywood are contacting their friends, ex-lovers and colleagues, advising them to stay alert and not become a victim of phishing.

Fearing the sort of leak which has caused serious embarrassment to Jennifer Lawrence and several other female A-listers, the male celebs are now changing their iCloud passwords on a weekly basis while some have withdrawn the service where they store their pictures and other private data, the website reports.

"One male celeb who was hacked last year says he now has all his emails on a private server ... and he's alerted if anyone attempts to read them," the TMZ report reads.

Meanwhile a new website has emerged on the internet which is threatening to leak the nude photos of the Harry Potter star Emma Watson - who has strongly condemned the leaks.

The website, named Emma You Are Next, has the same 4Chan logo which was responsible for leaking the nude pictures of hundreds of stars including Lawrence, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Avril Lavigne and Mary-Kate Olsen.

The nude photo hacking and leak scandal is currently under investigation by the FBI.
