800,000 Brazzers Accounts Exposed

An another Massive data breach with on another day. This time, around 800,000 accounts for popular porn site Brazzers.

The data originated from the company's separate forum, Brazzers users who never signed up to the forum may also find their details in this data breach.

Data was provided to The Motherboard publication by breach monitoring site for verification purposes. Breached data contains 928,072 entries where Motherboard found 790,724 unique email addresses, and it also includes usernames and plaintext passwords.

This data breach took us back to 2012. Which is common among data breaches in 2016.

PR manager of Brazzers Matt Stevens said, “This matches an incident which occurred in 2012 with our 'Brazzersforum,' which was managed by a third party. The incident occurred because of a vulnerability in the said third party software, the 'vBulletin' software, and not Brazzers itself.”

 Stevens added, "users’ accounts were shared between Brazzers and the 'Brazzersforum' which was created for user convenience. That resulted in a small portion of our user accounts being exposed and we took corrective measures in the days following this incident to protect our users.”

Brazzers uses separate url for Forum; which is currently under Maintenance ( at the time of writing ). Company did not say anything about this Maintenance. Users discuss different Brazzers porn scenes and stars on this forum, or request a new scenario they would like to see in future Brazzers productions.
