Almost 800,000 Brazzers Porn Site Accounts Leaked In BrazzersForum Hack

New day, new leak. This time, hackers enjoyed almost 800,000 users from port site Brazzers. A security flaw allowed unauthorized persons to enter the discussion forum database of the adult site in 2012, which resulted in the disclosure of user names, addresses, and email and even passwords in plain text on the Internet.

The leaked information was analyzed by Vigilante.pw, over their exactly 790,724 e-mail addresses were included in the list. The Brazzers data were ejaculated in 2012, on the same year the services like Dropbox, Last.fm and LinkedIn have also suffered attacks – all leaks were made public only in recent weeks, and it’s likely that new services entering the affected list in the next days.

Matt Stevens, a public relations manager from Brazzers, told Motherboard in an email that “the vulnerability was in vBulletin, system behind the discussion forum. As vBulletin is quite a popular and several other known sites should be affected at the same time”, recently, a community of fans Grand Theft Auto, which also ran on vBulletin, had 197,000 leaked accounts.

The fact that the Brazzers leak is related to the discussion forum makes the situation more complicated, because the posts and even private messages from users are at risk, as there are passwords in clear text in the middle of the bar. When the data of 37 million site accounts to “infidels” Ashley Madison were leaked, users were targets of extortion, receiving e-mails asking for money so that your information was not disclosed to friends and family.

The Brazzers discussion forum is down from the morning of Monday when the leakage of information became public. To find out if your data were leaked (not just Brazzers, but any other affected service), a good idea to consult “Haveibeenpwned“, which gathers leaks 135 affected sites, including LinkedIn, Adobe, Dropbox, Tumblr and other services.
