Brazzers porn forum hacked: Nearly 800,000 usernames and passwords exposed online

The forum hack compromised emails, usernames and even plain-text passwords.

Hundreds of thousands of users of a forum closely related to popular adult website Brazzers have been exposed in a data breach, with usernames and passwords exposed by hackers.

The leak, which was disclosed by a breach notification website called vigilante.pw, contained 790,724 email records in total, alongside forum usernames and even plain-text passwords. Like previous breaches at websites GTAGaming and Epic Games, the data leak has been blamed on security flaws in a piece of forum-building software called vBulletin.

The full dataset was verified in part by Australian cybersecurity researcher Troy Hunt and first reported by Vice Motherboard. Hunt manages a vital service called Have I Been Pwned which allows users to check if they are impacted in the leak.

The forum, at the time of writing, is offline and labelled as “under construction”. When it is active and in use, it allows users to chat about porn films hosted on the Brazzers network and discuss both the clips and their actors and actresses.
