The hackers who bombarded the Internet with naked photos of hundreds of celebrities ranging from Jennifer Lawrence to Kim Kardashian have released their fourth round and it is notable for a couple of reasons. First, as TMZ reports, they've at last targeted their first male victim in Nick Hogan, son of Hulk Hogan. The younger Hogan's photos are "voluminous and graphic," says the website; they also portray his various then-underage girlfriends, which Hogan contends constitutes child porn.

Other names on the list include Winona Ryder, Ingrid Michaelson, Erin Heatherington, Nina Dobrev, and others. Over at the Daily Beast, Marlow Stern brings us to the second point: The relative lack of A-listers would "seem to indicate that the pervy legion of hackers behind this sordid episode seem to be running out of ammo," and that this whole mess is dying down. The latest release is the first since a lawyer representing a dozen hacked celebs filed suit against Google last week, alleging that "Google has taken little or no action to stop these outrageous violations, or to limit the Images from appearing in Google search results."
