Seventeen students from the Bay Path Technical Vocational Regional High School in Charlton, Ma., are shocked after finding out that their Facebook photos and personal information had been used on a porn website, the New England Cable News reports.

Although police documentation states that all the girls were fully clothed, the network reports the find is still “very unnerving” for the students.

According to the report, Dean of Students Mary Jane Rickson called in each of the girls to tell them what happened.

“This was probably one of the most uncomfortable conversations I’ve ever had to have,” Rickson told NECN. “Especially with telling some of the girls who didn’t know that they were on the actual website. They were very upset.”

WBZ-TV’s Christina Hager spoke to one of the victims, McKenna Daniels, who expressed her shock when she found out from a friend that her photo had been posted.

“The fact that someone could do that, I don’t understand why someone would do that to me,” the student told Hager.

Police told WCBV-TV that this case isn’t the only one in the region. Students, he said, should be wary of what they put online and practice security safeguards like changing passwords often and not accepting friend requests from people they don’t know.
