The notorious LulzSec hacking group has published login passwords for almost 26,000 users of an x-rated porn website.

The hackers compromised the database of the hardcore website (called "Pron"), exposing not only the email addresses and passwords of over 25,000 members but also the credentials of 55 administrators of other adult websites.

Furthermore, LulzSec drew particular attention to various government and military email addresses (.mil and .gov) that appeared to have accounts with the porn website.

That must be an embarrassing one to explain to the boss..

To add insult to injury, the LulzSec group called on its many recent Twitter followers to exploit the situation, by logging into Facebook with the email/password combinations and tell the victim's Facebook friends and family about their porn habit.

File can be found on paste2.org

The earlist mention I saw of this was the 12th and it made several seurity sites. With WeinerGate still in the news this should be interesting if their followers were able to login to facebook/twitter before the passwords were reset. I really liked the government and military addresses. I scanned the list and didn't find any that matched my address book so I could have fun embarrassing/teasing people I know. Makes you wonder why/if they used their real address and common password. Some of the passwords reminded me of, I think, Space Balls, what kind of idiot uses 1,2,3,4 for a password.

They did on paste2.org. Facebook reset the passwords of members with email hits.

I have to say... PWRNED!


It's interesting to see groups like lulzsec and anonymous doing all these hacks recently. Whether it's a good thing or not is hard to say, but as long as they pick their targets appropriately (rather subjective, I know) I think that I'm in favour of what they are doing.

I don't think their actions were right but it's definitely entertaining as long as I'm not a victim

LulzSec are a bunch of w@nkers.

Why the need to hack and steal personal identifiable information about innocent people?

Why victimize innocent people like this? What a shamless and cowardly act to post the details of these peoples habits, to thier family and friends; To embarrass them. Bet they wouldn't have the balls to show up to the persons door and try to expose them.

Lowest of the Low.

I seriously hope these scumbags get nailed, and serve ALOT of jail time!

What's really funny was that around 90 of those people had a password that was "password".

/facepalm

Really? You want to send people to jail because they exposed a emails from a porn site?

The people who had those emails should have used better security (not using the same passwords on all accounts). And for the rest of the people who judge them for looking at porn... so what.

Big deal. It's a non-event on both sides. Just plain child stuff. Move on... The sky didn't fall today...

They really are good at exposing flaws in security for the lulz. Thus the name.

It obviously shows that security is only as good as its weakest link. Much like the once-vaunted Krypton bicycle lock versus a Bic round-style pen. I'm sure one of the biggest "hacks" is getting a name and password from any easily compromised database, and if the name is an interesting lead or has an interesting IP... It's just a very simple manner of checking for recycled passwords at any other account associated with that name. (The human memory has it's flaws for most people, so who isn't guilty of password recycling in some cases? If you do it, don't do it with any account that may actually be important. Since passwords are often verified or sent to email addresses, definitely make sure not to share site passwords with those used to access email or across different email addresses!)

At least Facebook appears to realizes this (of all places), but then you wonder about things like government or corporate networks... More than likely, it can be a cascading daisy-chain of one fail after another.

True it seems like childs play; And there should be no reason for a grown man or woman to feel embarrassed about watching porn (Well apart from paying to watch it
). But it's irrelevant.

They're no better than the cops who push disabled guys off thier wheelchairs etc etc... (Poor comparison; And I'm having trouble coming up with more examples, but i'm sure you get it). They are victimizing innocent people and STEALING personally identifiable information, and sensitive data like Credit card details and such, So i'm sorry if I don't condone that!

Truly, my friend, I am going to have to get you a photo with hot women drinking a decent Munich beer instead of that nasty stuff.

As for the topic, there is nothing wrong with porn, both my wife and myself enjoy watching it together. Of course, there are limits to ones sexual tendancies. Porn is fine as long as it does no harm to people, degrade those enacting it, or as long as it is not downright sick (I think you guys no what I mean). Goodness, we are all (mostly that is I suppose) adults here. We are wise to the ways of the world. If porn is just seen as a little fun to help you and your loved one get it on, where is the harm?
