Sex tape hackers are still targeting celebrities in full force

In the internet age, it seems like it should be rule No. 1: Never, ever record a sex tape. They have a nasty way of becoming public, whether you want them to or not, because of everything from phone hacks to revenge porn.

Celebrity sex tapes are especially at risk for being leaked or hacked, and Rose McGowan may be the latest victim.

A sex tape has reportedly hit "a number of celebrity sites," according to The Mirror, and it appears to feature McGowan, although that hasn't been confirmed. The site doesn't say whether the two-and-a-half-minute video looks like it was intentionally shot or if McGowan may have been filmed without her knowledge or consent.

The alleged tape hit right on the heels of a sex tape scam that targeted several British celebrities, including X-Factor's Shayne Ward and Sam Callahan. Inquisitr reports that "someone pretended to be interested in a relationship to trick them into performing sex acts on camera," and that the footage was later posted online.

Both stars said the scam happened to them years ago.

"This video is years old. Shayne was single at the time, and it happened when he was on tour with War of the Worlds," Ward's rep told reporters. "He’s so embarrassed this has happened. The conversation between him and the supposed woman have left him hugely red faced. He can’t believe anyone would do this."

Rugby star Ben Cohen also appeared to be a victim of the same scam.
