xHamster is a popular adult video site, receiving millions of hits a day from users around the world. Well, now we have leaked the data of 380,000 xHamster accounts, a very serious matter. In some cases it will mean that our passwords are in danger, and in others it may represent a reputation problem .
Recently millions of accounts of pages with a similar theme have been leaked, so it seems that cybercriminals are targeting this type of service. In the case of xHamster , what appears to have been stolen is usernames, email accounts, and passwords
These data are for sale on the Deep Web, the dark zone of the Internet. Many users share the passwords of various services, so it would be a good idea to change them if we have registered with xHamster at some point, to avoid unauthorized access.
On the other hand, for some Internet users it may be a reputation problem that they are discovered to be entering xHamster, something possible when reviewing the email list. In fact, emails from the United States military and other government agencies in the country have already been found, but surely other sensitive addresses will eventually appear .
One of the most serious hacks was that of Ashley Madison, a page where married people could meet discreetly. It is clear that this xHanster leak is not as serious, but it shows that we must be extremely careful with the services in which we enter our personal data .
xHamster denies that the hack is real, stating that the passwords were strongly encrypted, making them inaccessible. There are doubts about this, so it is best to change your passwords if you had an account in xHamster .
What do you think of this news? Do you think xHamster users are in danger, or do you doubt the scope of this hack?
