Christina Aguilera was a hacking victim, reportedly.

Updated after the jump with some doubt cast on the latest report.
Hackers who allegedly have nude photos and video of Vanessa Hudgens, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, and more have apparently also set their sites on some well known politicians and sports stars.
TMZ made that allegation this week, but names no names.
Still, this could get juicy. If the cyber-geeks were able to peer into the laptops of Washington power players and NBA power forwards, we're guessing ...
... nudity and lascivious info is also part of that alleged cache.
Sarah Palin is not a victim of hackers. That we know of.
This could be huge. And we're not just talking about what's behind those power suits. If hackers were able to get into government computers, for example, that would be a major crime and, arguably, a serious breach of national security (not to mention britches).
The FBI was looking to the celeb-hacking, so we'll assume they'll want to investigate this latest development too.
So, whom, in American politics, would you like to see naked?
(Don't say Sarah Palin).
Update: The Weekly was told that the latest report about Washington leaders and sports athletes being hacked might be exaggerated if not untrue. We'll keep an eye on it.
