Hackers expose porn site members’ personal info

Pornographic subscribers of Digital Playground are currently in a bind as the online porn site was hacked.

The website is trying to recover from the attack as the hackers got credit card numbers, email addresses, and other sensitive information from them.

The website is now back online as the members area of digitalplayground.com is now available after being down for several days. A message from the website stated that they are not currently taking any new subscription.

The hack exposed information of the website’s members. There are currently over 73,000 paying members of Digital playground according to AVN.

A group that calls themselves “The Collective” took credit of the attack in the posts and claims to be affiliated with other hacking groups like Lulz Security and Anonymous.

Manwin told AVN that they took down the website last March 5 after learning of a network breach that may have possibly occurred before the hackers sacked the website four days earlier.

He also added that they were supervising “all aspects of the situation” and has been in contact with members since the breach.

The pornographic website is the third Manwin Holding-owned website that has been attacked by hackers. Brazzers and YouPorn were also intruded by the hackers.
