[ISN] Hacker steals one million user logins from YouPorn website
By John E Dunn

A million logins for the hugely popular YouPorn sex site appear to have
been leaked after a hacker chanced upon a URL linking to a user list
apparently left exposed for several years.
Smaller portions of the YouPorn database featuring user email addresses
and passwords have appeared on Pastebin, many of them using recognisable
first and last names.
The vulnerable URL has now been taken down by the publishers of YouPorn,
which still leaves a large number of the siteâs users at risk of having
their accounts hacked of phished.
âYou can imagine how employers and marital partners may be less than
impressed to find you are registered for a website like YouPorn. And
their discovery of your porn penchant is only a search and a click
away,â said Graham Cluley of Sophos.
