Tiger Woods and Olympic skier ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn are the newest stars to be victimized by a hacker and website that posts their private nude photos online, writes The Hollywood Reporter

Woods’ attorney Michael Holtz of Lavely & Singer sent the site a letter that threatens legal action if the photographs are not removed. The site has an entire section dedicated to “nude celebs,” according to The Hollywood Reporter, and other people who have been exploited by the site are Katharine McPhee, Kristen Stewart and Miley Cyrus. It is unknown whether they are also pursuing legal action like Woods.

The site often posts both real and fake intimate images of famous women. After letters such as Woods’, the images are removed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, attorney Martin Singer sent a similar letter to the one Holtz sent in December when the site posted hacked photos of Lucy Hale, the star of Pretty Little Liars.
