Hackers were able to gain access to pornography website Digital Playground recently and made off with a very large number of plain text credit card numbers from users of the site. According to reports that hackers were able to steal 40,000 credit card numbers and other data including names, CCV numbers, and expiration dates. With those details, the credit card numbers could be used online.
In addition to the theft of credit card numbers, the hackers also claim that they made off with the personal information of 72,000 other users. This the second large hacking attack on a porn website in the last several months. Previously a site called YouPorn was attacked.
Hackers left a statement that said, “We did not set out to destroy them, but they made it too enticing to resist. So now our humble crew leaves lulz and mayhem in our path.” Apparently, the site is down, and the homepage has a message that says not available.
