The Digital Playground attack comes weeks after YouPorn was hacked

Hackers have set their sights on the online porn website Digital Playground and were successful in gaining access to credit card numbers of paid subscribers. The hackers allegedly made off with 40,000 plain text credit card numbers that include usernames, CCV numbers, and expiration dates.
The hackers also are said to have grabbed personal information on 72,000 users. The hackers, known as The Consortium, which attacked the site, appear to be affiliated with Anonymous and LulzSec reports BBC News.
The hackers also said they were able to root the server and gain access to corporate e-mails.
The Consortium stated, "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."
The home page of the porn site is online, but indicated that it is no longer accepting new signups at this time. This makes the second porn site attacked in recent weeks with the first being the site called YouPorn, which was hacked exposing usernames and e-mail addresses.

I had some girlfriends who liked their hair being pulled and smacked around a bit. One liked being choked... People have different tastes in sex. They were both well adjusted girls with good jobs.

I can see slapping a girl on the backside as pretty healthy in bed but choking them? I've never understood the asphyxiation thing (RIP David Carradine in a closet hanging from a coatrack). People definitely have different tastes.

I was the one doing the choking, somewhat awkward.
I definitely held back and was just was giving the illusion of her asphyxiating by Restricting her breathing. She did love it though I had no problem with it, just had to make sure I didn't over do it.

It is degrading and takes advantage of young women, and those who support it lack moral fiber... and yet you watch it enough to be able to describe trends in the industry???

You do realize you are then part of the so called problem and one of said individuals without moral fiber...right?

What kind of company leaves credit card information unencrypted? I mean seriously? It's a porn site but still... invest some of that money in security.

This is in complete violation of PCI and they should be fined and possibly put in jail for criminal negligence.

PCI isn't federally enforced. It's managed by the PCISSC, and all you have to do is pass an annual inspection, which it's easy enough to bribe your way through.

Heh, I wonder how many of the credit cards are real? Most are probably stolen, or those temporary ones you can get at Wal-Mart (so the wives won't know about them). I doubt this gets more than a "oh well" from law enforcement. Which is probably why they target these guys.

Wish Lulzsec and the rest would go after the kiddie porn sites. Would gain them some respect.
Any money/info stolen from those sites wouldn't generate any complaints, or law enforcement attention. Or go after the Chinese or something. Ah, no point trying to give instructions to anarchists, they hate that.

Never heard of routing a server to gain access... This needs to be correct to "Root". As in gaining full system access like the hackers did.

The most encouraging sight for a hacker is the backpacks of routed enemy servers
