Report: Info For 73,000 Porn Subscribers Has Been Breached

A group of hackers has announced they’ve dipped into the personal info of 73,000 subscribers to porn site Digital Playground, tapping usernames, email addresses and passwords, as well as credit card information for 40,000 cards. Subscribers have been notified of the breach, and the site isn’t accepting new members.

According to BBC News, the group posted some of the details lifted from the site, including login names and passwords and some email addresses of members. Digital Playground is based in California but the site is run out of Luxembourg by a company called Manwin.

Manwin took over on March 1, but claim the breach could have occurred before that time.

Just last month, YouPorn’s discussion forums called YP Chat (which is a separate entity) also suffered a breach of information for over 6,000 of its users. YouPorn is also administered by Manwin but a third-party was blamed for that security snafu.

    Who in this world pays for porn? It’s readily available for free and the average visit is only 12 minutes long to any given site!

    • Jchamberlain says:

      12 minutes, are you actually watching the entire video or skipping to the good parts? Thank you broadband!!!!

      • BorkBorkBork says:

        Did kaptainkk’s joke make a ‘wooshing’ sound as it flew over your head?

        • Fafaflunkie Plays His World's Smallest Violin For You says:

          Maybe Jchamberlain watches those … er … videos so often it’ll take him/her more than 12 minutes to take care of the reason to watch it, if you get the drift %]~~~

      “Who in this world pays for porn?”

      People who are able to distinguish good porn from bad.

      • Kuri says:

        While ignoring that such is completely subjective.

        • Guppy06 says:

          Even if it is truly subjective, those who are able to hold the opinion “I like X but don’t like Y” are going to be the ones who will pay for X in spite of being able to get Y for free.

      Every married man on this planet who has a financially dependent wife with a kinky side?

    dear idiots,

    stop registering/paying for porn.

    common sense.

    • longdvsn says:

      If there aren’t idiots paying for it, they won’t produce it. We need idiots to make it free for the rest of us.

  4. Quake 'n' Shake says:

    Nothing says “I exercise shitty judgement” quite like paying for porn on the internet.

  5. Guppy06 says:

    “Subscribers have been notified of the breach, and the site isn’t accept(ing) new members.”

    Leave it to the porn industry to show others how to behave ethically.

  6. dougp26364 says:

    Getting lost in the fact it’s a porn site that’s been breached, it’s always a good idea to change internet/email passwords every so often.

  7. ancientone567 says:

    lol the members are probably all senators etc. Who else would be dumb and rich enough to pay for porn?

  8. JennQPublic says:

    This is just wrong. A man’s got a right to some privacy regarding his porn subscriptions!

    I say man, because we ladies obviously never look at such filth.

  9. Hailey says:

    Girls also watch erotic material (I should know since I was the last I checked). Hm, there are websites out there that offer free content at the cost of tracking cookies and such. The majority of premium erotic websites offer very little.

  10. gman863 says:

    Since it will be extremely hard on subscribers to explain how their credit card was penetrated by hackers, stiff penalties are in order.

  11. framitz says:

    Most of what I would say has already been said here.

    So, where the heck is that video camera? I’m home early!

  12. Cicadymn says:

    Paying for porn.

    I seriously hope you guys don’t do this.

  13. Nobby says:

    Okay, I’ll play you guy’s silly game….where’s all this free porn everyone is referring to?

  14. Cat says:

    More republicans outed.

    Somebody’s really screwed now.

  16. heisindc says:

    Reminds me of my IT friend’s facebook posts recently: “If you have a company laptop, please do not download porn, get viruses, then complain that your computer isn’t working.”

  17. RiverStyX says:

    This is why I steal my porn from the newsgroups. Just like sex, only a loser would pay for their porn.

  18. AngryK9 says:

    A little brown chicken brown cow, goes a long way on the internet.

  19. SharkD says:

    This is precisely why I make my own porn at home…
