Hackers Expose 26,000 Sex Website Passwords

samzenpus posted more than 3 years ago | from the naming-names dept.

Privacy 497

An anonymous reader writes "Passwords and email addresses of almost 26,000 members of adult website Pron.com have been released on the internet by the notorious hacking group LulzSec. To add to the victims' humiliation, LulzSec called on its followers to try the email/password combinations against Facebook, and tell friends and family of the users that they were subscribers to a pornographic website. In addition LulzSec released passwords belonging to the administrators of dozens of other adult websites, and highlighted military and government email addresses that had signed up for the xxx-rated services."

It's Americas biggest version of "don't ask, don't tell". A classic is the Utah store owner who proved they were watching tons of PPV porn at the local hotel to get past the Miller test [wikipedia.org] . Politicians simply play the game to win votes, I hardly think they're better than the rest of us. Most of the world - and even the US - have gotten over the whole "sin" to spill the seed, but you still don't talk about it. That's the way it's been from the very beginning, where's little Suzy? Oh, she's furiously frigging her clit. A lot of them go "LALALALALALA", don't want to see it, hear about it, think about it, go to your room and this is on DADT basis. Never figured out why it was such a big deal, if I didn't I'd have such a serious case of blue balls I'd sleep with almost anything - which would be grounds for concern.

Do we live in the Dark Ages and masturbation is a sin?

Depends whether you have a religion, and on which religion if you do.

For many branches of the Judeo-Christian-Islamic cluster, masturbation is definitely considered sinful, and you should resist attempts to leave the Dark Ages. Not sure about the Jain-Buddhist cluster or Shinto, but it was not generally impugned in the Indo-European cluster, of which Hinduism is the major survivor.

Atheists don't have sin, but do classify actions on an ethical scale, and mostly consider masturbation to be harmless or healthy.

metlin (258108) | more than 3 years ago | (#36423258)

On one hand, I couldn't agree more with one of the posters who said something along the lines the how people make a bog deal out of sex between consenting adults, including the watching of it. The Victorian-esque morality that most aspects of sex are something that people should be ashamed of, including porn, is not something I can relate to.

That said, I have to wonder about the kind of people who would be paying for porn. Even if you are particularly desperate, there's so much free porn on the Internet that it's almost pointless to pay for porn. Plus, if you're that desperate, just how hard is it to pick girls up at a bar (or if you're a geek Don Juan, Craigslist)? Paying for sex in any shape or form has to be one of the silliest things, given how easy it is to find women who are more than willing if you just looked around.

I can't agree. The fact is disease, and unwanted pregnancy don't care that its consensual. The moral majority is correct on this, sex with multiple partners is socially irresponsible.

"Paying for sex in any shape or form has to be one of the silliest things, given how easy it is to find women who are more than willing if you just looked around."

90% of men are incapable of getting sex for free. At a minimum, they have to pay at least for a few drinks or dinner at a restaurant. Usually multiple times, and with no guarantee of their effort and expenditure resulting in sex. Not to mention the costs of marriage and divorce.

"Plus, if you're that desperate, just how hard is it to pick girls up at a bar (or if you're a geek Don Juan, Craigslist)?"

How hard? This is Slashdot, where understanding quantum cryptography is easier than picking up women at a bar. Random sluts on Craigslist or sex-only online dating sites? ... can you say STDs?

Free sex is often the most expensive kind of sex.

Hmm I must be a genius then - it's not that hard. You go out, talk to people, and some will be interested. Of course if you come across as a strange needy pervert, you might have problems, but I haven't. In fact I've had girls pick me up several times. On the other hand, I don't really count buying a drink or two, since I do that for my friends (including guys...) too. I usually meet new people with the idea of making friends, and if it turn out to be more fun that that.. goodie ;0

>"Plus, if you're that desperate, just how hard is it to pick girls up at a bar (or if you're a geek Don Juan, Craigslist)?"

Bars are hit or miss, but usually easy when they work.

>How hard? This is Slashdot, where understanding quantum cryptography is easier than picking up women at a bar. Random sluts on Craigslist
>or sex-only online dating sites? ... can you say STDs?

Well uhm.. if you picked them up .. anywhere, they could still have STDs. The best way to prevent STDs other than not having sex is to use a condemn. Just because you picked up an "innocent" girl at church and married her doesn't mean she won't have an STD.

>Free sex is often the most expensive kind of sex.
Well I know what you're trying to say here... I had one girl that I slept with like once, and then she stalked me for like 6 months, including coming to my office and writing a note on my desk, and sneaking past security at my apartment. (And no, I didn't "play" her or anything like that.)

Re:Two minds (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36423518)

I've paid for porn*, namely because I was in the mood to watch porn with
1. Pretty women - I can't stand porn with women who look like they shoot up between takes
2. Petite women - big tits just don't do it for me
3. People looking like they're enjoying it

There's a huge amount of free porn out there, but a great deal of it appears to be some huge breasted crack whore being being brutalised by three black blokes.

* However, I've had enough sense to use a throw away email account.

The reason why you never hear about porn sites getting cracked is because it is fucking easy. Most porn sites are vulnerable as hell and almost anyone with some technical proficiency can exploit them. They are run by low budget companies who often just cant afford to secure their sites. Cracking porn sites are for pathetic script kiddies with little to no skill what so ever. Also what's up with trying to shame owners of porn site memberships? Fucking puritans.

digitig (1056110) | more than 3 years ago | (#36423474)

I think the point was that gay sex tends not to help us "to be able to spread", i.e., it's not adaptive. There are some theories that suggest it might be, though, at least in the case of male homosexuality. The whole thing about the more older brothers a man has the more likely they are to be gay has led some to speculate that nature is diverting them from reproduction (which could lead to problems with resources) to providing to their siblings (which helps genes they are likely to share). Presumably on that theory nature found it easier to divert the male sex drive than to turn it off -- which I can believe.

Simple vandals and criminals (4, Insightful)

After they exposed loads of username/password combinations off some Sony service, I thought to myself; who are they actually hurting? It seemed to me they just made it loads easier for criminals without the skills to do this sort of thing themselves.

Yes, it is possible that some more sinister hackers already had this data without telling anyone, just secretly exploiting them, but actually publishing the combinations makes it many times more likely that someone will exploit your personal data.

I consider this hacking group no more than simple vandals and criminals at this stage. There is no "honour" in it, and exposing porn clients are extremely likely to be hypocritical. I don't believe for a second that all members of this hacker group has a "clean conscience" about porn.

Excellent logic. I can recall a similar one: US citizens need to be hurt A LOT in order to get conscious about not interfering with other nations internals and start demanding it, or start immigrating to Canada - more or less forcing everyone to pay more attention to their foreign affairs.

GauteL (29207) | more than 3 years ago | (#36423614)

"Customers need to be hurt A LOT in order to get conscious about security and start demanding it, or start avoiding companies like Sony"

This does in no shape or form excuse actually hurting them. Just because someone has to be the first, doesn't mean the first is any less despicable than the second.

To use the standard lock analogy: just because some unscrupulous lock company sold their customers locks that could be defeated by someone sticking a pin into the lock, doesn't excuse someone breaking into houses in this way.

To be fair, PatheticLosersSec doesn't steal anything from the house it would seem, but it would be like breaking into all these houses and just leaving the door wide open. It would massively increase the chances of someone exploiting the situation.

If they actually had noble goals, they would notify all the users and publish information to embarrass the company in a way which wouldn't compromise all their users personal data.

They are telling people to go and destroy peoples lives.
Telling them to log into their Facebook accounts and tell their families about their porn habit?

So if a guy or girl is secretly going to gay porn sites, and his or her parents are religious, what kind of damage could that do?

Re:Simple vandals and criminals (1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36423456)

That's fine BS.

The baseline is, if it wasn't for LulzSec, nobody would even know Sony keeps your passwords in plaintext on several services. People would use those services and feel safe. Dangerously safe. Even worse, Sony's competitors who actually spend effort on security would be unable to efficiently compete, as nobody notices the difference in safety.

The only way to ensure Sony and the likes improve security practices is to make press go after them. That requires something as big as repeated security breaches.

Don't kid yourself, the passwords of users were never safe in the first place; they could be as well printed and distributed like a telephone directory book. Point in case -- a bunch of script kiddies hacked the website in no time.

Oh I agree. But they do it for power. (1)

elucido (870205) | more than 3 years ago | (#36423528)

Since none of us know just how many porn passwords they have cracked, along with Facebook accounts. We do not know whether or not for example some Anon somewhere cracked our most sick perverted teen porn password, and also has our Facebook to tell our family.

I kind of feel for this guy:

uanzmg@fpfzxc.com | tZxHgJNlpRERQEkK

as he clearly put some effort into a difficult password and still got fucked.

Quite sure he is using some sort of password software, that manages his passwords for him.
Doubt he has to type it all the time.

Mark Hood (1630) | more than 3 years ago | (#36423570)

And he probably therefore has a different one on every site...

Of course, his email's still out there for all to see, which is embarrassing. But at least he won't be frantically scouring Facebook to get rid of all the stuff 'he' posted :)

No he probably didn't, that's why he was on a porn website.

Not sure what's going on in the mind of the person who used "children" as his/her password.

More interestingly, with uniq -c

670 123456
212 123456789
111 12345
75 1234
72 12345678

52 1234567890
49 123
41 123123
40 111111
36 000000

Of the 26,000, 18,500 are singletons.

My favourite password so far is "remember".

Imagine if Google got hacked similarly .... (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36423374)

They must have a phemonenal amount of personal info on people based on web search alone, never mind everything else they do.

Some Google engineers must have the ability (if not necessarily permission) to track the porn surfing habits of the vast majority of the world's internet surfers. Think how many powerful people that they could blackmail with this information.

Don't fuck with Google ...

If Anon hacked Google they'd have the dirt to blackmail the entire internet. They'd know who was researching how to kill their husband. They'd know who thinks what and who watches what porn.

This is why your Google password should be at least 100 characters long, random, and impossible to remember.

Who Pissed in Anon's Cornflakes? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#36423384)

Why are they going after everything and anything?

Maybe they should blow up some unmarked yellow vans to further obscure whatever their "message" is.

For the lulz, obviously.

anybody going to that site will get a mandatory free "upgrade" for his system, offered by LulzSec.

Phone numbers? (1)

Looks like a lot of those people use their phone number as their password.

Where is the 123 dialing code, then? Looks like it would be a good place to start selling Kleenex.

I didn't know these hacking groups were so fascio-christian.

Wow, so this is supposed to be embarrasing? (1)

Tomsk70 (984457) | more than 3 years ago | (#36423522)

Not sure I'd really care if people found out I was subscribing to a porn site....it's not as if my Wife doesn't go there too :-)

As a result, I feel sorry for those who apparently think it's something to be shocked at.

In fact, I'd be more embarrassed at people knowing I *paid* for it when there's so much free stuff about.

Security failure on all sides. (1)

wvmarle (1070040) | more than 3 years ago | (#36423552)

Really is it that hard to build some basic security into one's site? I mean like storing the passwords as hash, instead of plaintext? It is just a few bits of code... so simple... but yet again a web site failing on such a basic matter. No wonder they got hacked to boot, and now have all their member's e-mails and passwords out on the street.

I would expect a porn site to care a bit more about their user's privacy, considering the business they're in. Though considering how much some of their users care (using a .mil or .gov address to sign up) maybe indeed it's just as well that they didn't care too much. Oh well, let's hope it's a lesson learnt for porn site subscribers, even though considering they are paying for on-line porn they're not the smartest cookies of the pack.

How many signups were done by someone else "ordering a pizza" for a little revenge.
