Hundreds of Western Australian women and girls – some as young as 14 – have been caught up in a nude photo scandal.
The victims originally sent the images privately to a source they trusted but who then shared the images online, reported Seven News.
The latest photo scandal comes after authorities shut down a site in February that contained explicit images of young female students from across Australia.

Hundreds of photos of woman and teenagers have been leaked online in a nude photo scandal (the images above are not related to the recent leak)
The new leak sees its content expire every two days but allows users to download the images
This time, content shared online expires every two days and users can download and store the images which can then be shared at a later date.
Experts say shutting down this new leak is almost impossible because it is difficult to identify the culprits.
‘There’s really no chance of us being able to contact those networks or remove half of the images I suppose let alone all of them,’ Paul Litherland from Surf Online Safe told Seven News.
‘It’s almost a network or a shopping market to a degree in regards to people trying to see these photos’.
Users of this new forum have requested nude images of students from specific schools including Sacred Heart College and Duncraig Senior High School.
Both schools have said that no students have put in complaints.
While another user commented: ‘Nobody dates a girl and does not keep her nudes, let’s see what you have’.

Experts say it is almost impossible to delete the images from the public domain after they are leaked online
