Vanessa Hudgens concerned for career after hacking scandal

Vanessa Hudgens is reportedly concerned her career will suffer as a result of the recent hacking scandal.   

The 25-year-old actress - who had naked photos of herself leaked online in 2007 - may have been targeted for a second time after explicit images, thought to be of star, were published on photo-sharing website 4chan on Saturday, and now the brunette beauty is allegedly worried how the attack will affect her job.   

A source told the "She has learned to accept that it happened before and there really isn't anything she can do about it.   

"She is still upset, and now that it has happened again, she is even more rocked by it because she really wants to be known as a serious actress.  

"With these new photos out, in her eyes she thinks it taints what people might think of her when it comes to producers and decision-makers for her career."  

However, the 'High School Musical' star is yet to confirm that the alleged images are authentic.   

The leak comes just three weeks after naked snaps of Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst and Kate Upton were published on 4chan, Twitter and Reddit.   

However, it is believed over 100 celebrities - including Kim Kardashian West, Liam Payne, Avril Lavigne and Rihanna - have also been affected by the scandal after a hacker stole explicit images and videos from Apple's iCloud service last month.  

Apple said it was "outraged" by the attack and encouraged users to update their accounts with a "strong" password and enable two-step verification.
