Given she plays Black Widow on the big screen, it's too bad she can't call the Avengers in on this one.

Back in March, Scarlett Johansson's name popped up on a list of celebrities who found themselves the target of hackers that broke into their cell phones and leaked some nude photos and video.

With sultry X-rated pics of the sex symbol surfacing today on various gossip sites, ScarJo's fighting back by reaching out to the feds to find the perpetrators.

A source close to Johansson tells TMZ that her camp is contacting the FBI to investigate and catch the tech-savvy thieves who broke into her cell and stole several alluring images the 26-year-old actress took of herself sans clothes, and then passed them to websites such as Perez Hilton and Mediatakeout.com.

A rep for Johansson was unavailable for comment, but FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller tells E! News that the agency is on the case.

"The FBI is investigating a person or group responsible for a series of cyber intrusions of high profile figures," Eimiller says. "This would include many devices—could mean a computer, desktop, laptop, iPad, cell phone…intrusions into personal online accounts too."

E! News previously reported that G-men have been hunting for a ring that has been hacking into the phones and email accounts of not only Johansson but also more than 50 other female stars including Ali Larter, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus and Jessica Alba.
