ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WJAR) -The Attleboro Police Department has issued a warning across Massachusetts after authorities discovered a pornographic website that categorizes women by where they live.

The site, Anon-V, allows users to anonymously post naked pictures of women and information.

NECN reported that police found out about the site in December and had to tell two women that their photos and information were on the site.

"These people are being victimized without their knowledge," Lt. Timothy Cook told NECN, with the media outlet also noting that "whoever is posting the images seems to have some knowledge about the women. Some of the posts include not just photos, but the names of women and where they live. Some are from the Attleboro area, as well as other cities and towns in Massachusetts."

Police were able to track the website servers to the coast of Africa but said that will make policing and having the site removed difficult.
