(Newser) – Hackers may not just know the identities of nearly 800,000 people with accounts on the porn site Brazzers, but also their thoughts on particular scenes and actors, Motherboard reports. Hackers made public the email addresses, usernames, and passwords of 790,724 Brazzers members. A spokesperson for Brazzers tells Motherboard the breach wasn't with the website itself but with its Brazzersforum, which runs on third-party software called vBulletin. And while that spared some Brazzers users from having their information revealed, one security researcher argues it's actually worse. The forum was used by members to discuss porn videos and suggest future videos, which is potentially some highly embarrassing information to have out there. Brazzersforum is currently offline.
