Alleged nude photos of Amber Rose, the model, are actually not new.

The photos made their way onto Twitter on Saturday after photos of Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgens were leaked

After doing a reverse image search, the photos have been circulating online since at least 2011.

A number of Twitter users said the photos–which had media websites World Star Hip Hop and Media Take Out branded on them–were not taken recently.

The Kardashian and Hudgens photos, according to UpRoxx, were posted on 4chan and were then removed by the site’s administrators.

4chan is said to have cited copyright infringement for taking down the pictures.

They were also posted on Reddit before being taken down.

“It appears Aubrey Plaza, Hayden Panettiere, Leelee Sobieski and Lake Bell were also targeted at some point in the last few hours. The FBI has been involved from the very beginning but have yet to apprehend the hacker(s) responsible. This latest leak suggests they are nowhere near catching them,” UpRoxx says.

The original hackers who leaked photos of Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence are believed to have exploited holes in Apple’s iCloud service. The security bugs were addressed by the firm and CEO Tim Cook then said he’d make the service better and more secure.
