Apple is also trying to determine how photos that had been stored on its iCloud system were pulled by the hackers, according to The Associated Press.

Nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence, other celebs leaked after massive phone hack

Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead tweeted that she had previously deleted the photos of herself that were posted Sunday. "Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this," Winstead tweeted. "Feeling for everyone who got hacked."

Shortly after the photos spread online on Sunday, the leak was traced back to a user on a 4chan message board.
