An online hardcore fetish forum has been the subject of a hack, resulting in more than 100,000 user details being leaked. The details include: usernames, IP addresses, email addresses and weakly-hashed passwords.
The breach was discovered by the
founder of Have I Been Pwned, Troy Hunt. The service is used to find out if you have been the subject of a data breach by entering your email address. Whilst talking to the BBC, Troy explained that the forum was exploited by an SQL injection
vulnerability, as the site was using an outdated piece of software.
The nature of this breach is worsened by the subject matter of the forum. Many users on this site are unlikely to want their personal sexual fetishes being released. The forum is
the rosebuttboard.com specialising in the likes of anal fisting.
