800,000 Identities Stolen From Adult Porn Site Brazzers

Passwords, usernames and emails have all been made available for some 800,000 users in the latest big name data leak, this time from porn network Brazzers. That’s the number of email addresses that were retrieved by security monitoring firm Vigilante, though the leaked data is also said to contain plain-text passwords and usernames associated with those emails.

Despite claiming that it’s an old hack, Brazzers isn’t taking any chances and has shut down its forum temporarily while it investigates for any potential new breach in its security.

There are a couple ways to check if you have been part of this data breach. Use the Identity Check feature in the Trustlook Mobile Security app, or use the Have I Been Pwned website.

Beyond that, users are encouraged to change their password.
