The xHamster user account credentials are now being sold on dark web.

The adult content website is known to be a free porn website; however, the users can comment, share and even upload their own videos once they sign up.

The users of this porn site, xHamster, are expected to sign up using their personal credentials.

The personal details of approximately 380,000 xHamster users whose information is being sold on dark web are just a small fraction of the almost 12 million subscribers of the adult website.

The hacked xHamster database is said to contain the emails, usernames, and passwords of the subscribers.

It has been reported that some of the hacked user accounts on xHamster belong to government bodies in the USA and the UK.

To prove the credibility of the information, a test was conducted on 50 of the hacked user accounts.

All the 50 accounts came back as active, which actually confirms the information as accurate.

The administrators of the adult website, xHamster, issued a statement on the media saying that all the passwords of its users were properly and professionally encrypted.

xHamster dismissed the claim that its servers were hacked and its users’ personal credentials leaked as all the data was secured.

However, this statement released by xHamsters was regarded to be false after a test was conducted on the hashes that were leaked.

The test revealed that the hashes on xHamster were created using the oldest type of computer software known as MD-5. This to most hackers is a walk in the park as they are quite easy to access.

Out of the hoard of emails in the xHamster hacked database, some were found to belong to members of the US military, high-profile American citizens, UK, and other government agencies.

The majority of dark web users are cyber criminals, drug dealers, and even terrorists. The hacked user accounts being sold on dark web is not good.

It is not safe for the xHamster users as it could open a Pandora’s Box for the high profile individuals who have their adult rated information uploaded on the site.

Its traders tend to be very unscrupulous and who knows what extent they would go to even blackmail the high profile government officials and agencies who had their user accounts and personal credentials leaked on dark web.

The media so far has had no comments from any users of the hacked xHamster accounts.

Perhaps they were too ashamed that their videos will begin going viral on the internet, and whilst some of the hacked user accounts belonged to high-profile individuals, this could ruin careers and soil a lot of reputations for persons in government.

Although xHamster denies being hacked and the credentials and account details of a number of its users being sold on the dark web, another analysis was done on the porn site’s database to confirm the allegations.

The test was just to affirm that the user’s information was not publicly available yet.

It was revealed by the results which made it known that the database was hacked recently, and the information of its subscribers newly leaked to the internet.

News going around is that these adult websites have become a target for hackers intending to make money. Users and subscribers should simply tread carefully because every other day someone gets hacked and hurt in the process.
