Theres no Such thing As Free Porn xHamster Hack Compromises 380,000 Users

I have long said that in the end you are gonna pay for that porn you watch on the tube sites and this is the kinda thing that bears me out. You may be thinking big deal they got passwords to a porn site BUT the also got info about the users and without too much effort they can learn where they bank and that sort of stuff….since most people use the same login/email address and passwords this kind of thing compromises more than just their xHamster accounts.

If you have an account with adult entertainment site xHamster, you will want to read this next bit of news.

Hackers are selling more than 380,000 xHamster passwords, usernames and email addresses on the dark web, according to a report by Motherboard.

Members of xHamster are urged to change their passwords immediately.

Motherboard claims the leaked data is genuine and has been verified and correspond to existing xHamster accounts.

A source at security site LeakBase told Motherboard that while it had no information on the details of the hack, cyber criminals discovered a vulnerability in the site and managed to its security earlier this year.

And if users used the same login details elsewhere, hackers would also be able to access other online accounts.

xHamster has since confirmed that the data being traded on the dark web is genuine but said there was no risk to users as all passwords are encrypted.

However, the report on Motherboard claimed that user passwords were poorly hashed, meaning they could be cracked by hackers in a matter of seconds and used to carry out phishing or spamming campaigns.

A spokesperson for xHamster said: “The passwords of all xHamster users are properly encrypted, so it is almost impossible to hack them. Thus, all the passwords are safe and the users data secured”.

However, the company failed to provide any details on the breach or respond the claims about the poorly hashed passwords.

If you are not aware, xHamster is an adult entertainment site that actually has around 12 million registered users.

The news about xHamster comes less than a month after a massive cyber attack exposed the login details of more than 412 million user accounts of another adult entertainment site, Adult Friend Finder.

    When a site requires you to sign up to get “full access to free porn” you know there is no free lunch. Signing up basically puts you in play.

    The question is that of value for value. The value of your email address or other information in return for the value of the content. This is the moment when for xhamster users, the bill comes due and they find out if the value proposition is really worth it. Once you filter out all the throw away email addresses and such, you are left with a much smaller number who may have to actually “pay the price”. Even then, how many of them have enough friends or family in play that really care that they like watching girls getting butt stuffed?
