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.
