  • comments

If you're a member of the pornography website YouPorn, look away now. Thousands of user emails and passwords from the pornographic site have been exposed in a security breach, the Associated Press reports.

The security breach was allegedly caused by a third-party chat service, which “failed to take the appropriate precautions in securing its user data,” according to Kate Miller, spokeswoman of YouPorn parent company Manwin Holding SARL.

A list of members email addresses and passwords is circulating online, which contains 6,400 passwords. A word cloud of the most popular passwords from the site has been created by researcher Ashkan Soltani.

No doubt thousands of men and women will be embarrassed if their details come out in public.
