Hackers Steal 73,000 Porn Site Users Information

March 12, 2012

Hackers claim they have stolen the information of over 73,000 subscribers to porn site Digital Playground.

A hacker group called The Consortium said it has stolen user names, email addresses, and passwords, as well as numbers and security codes for 40,000 credit cards.

The group posted some of the data it stole on the web and said security on the site was full of holes that “made it too enticing to resist” stealing the data.

“This company has security, that if we didn’t know it was a real business, we would have thought to be a joke – a joke that we found much more amusing than they will,” wrote The Consortium in a log posted on the web.

The Consortium showed off admin login names and passwords, as well as a selection of the email addresses and user names of some members.

The group claims some of the credit card data was stored in plain text form, not encrypted to help keep users protected.

Luxembourg-based firm Manwin said it took over management of the Digital Playground site on March 1, and the breach may have occurred before it took charge.

The firm said it was overseeing the investigation and Digital Playground subscribers had been contacted to let them know what happened.
