Brazzers, one of the most profusely paid-subscription porn site in the international market had to undergo a major breach of security, which resulted in the exposure of account details of minimum 790,724 members.brazzers-hack

Brazzers said that it has taken relevant measures to stop people and media being able to use the information stolen to re-login in the user forum. The hackers were able to access to names, emails and passwords by exploiting vulnerabilities in the vBulletin software (version 5.2.3) where the members talk about their favorite and most preferred porn actors and videos.

According to the reports of Motherboard (an online magazine and video channel inclined to the intersection of technology, science, and humans), the hack actually took place somewhere around 2013 but it didn’t come to light until now. At that time, the Brazzersforum was managed by a third party and it showed the status of the site as “under construction” when searched.

Although a large number of vulnerabilities were identified later and patches were issued by the developers, site administrators who had been leaving the pages in the same condition which was one of the major factors that led to the breaches.

Some of the user accounts were shared between Brazzers and Brazzersforum, which was created for user convenience. The most massive problem with the hacking of this forum instead of just the porn site itself is how it exploited the most intimate, personal and fantasizing thoughts and perspective of the users. Members have been asked to change their username and passwords as soon as possible for both the forum and the website.

Eventually, the best course of action, in this case, is to have a unique password and email for this kind of sensitive sites. People should never enter their original details as it might get them into trouble later on. Altogether the best way to be safe is keeping yourself away from such sites and videos.
