A group of students at a northern Virginia high school are being investigated for using Dropbox as a makeshift porn site by sharing nude pictures of their female classmates, officials said.

The Fairfax County home of at least one McLean High School student was searched after a tipster alerted authorities that dozens of explicit photos of students — most of whom were underage — had been uploaded to the file hosting site, WTTG-TV reported.

It was not immediately clear if any of the teenaged girls in the pictures were aware that they had been photographed.
