Digital Playground porn site hacked, user details stolen

Hackers are claiming to have found a way to steal data on over 70,000 users, from the porn site Digital Playground, stating that they have passwords, user names and email addresses - and a few credit card details too.

This is no Lulzsec or Anonymous hack, instead it is from a new hacking group making themselves known with this attack. Their name? The ominous sounding "Consortium."

In the wake of the hack, the Digital Playground site has been left online, but it has a message stating "Members area is available, but we are not currently accepting new sign up's. Click here to access the members area."

The Consortium has posted some details from the attack over at Zone-h, stating that it currently has 72,000 email addresses, usernames and passwords, along with 40,000 numbers, expiry dates and security codes from user credit cards.

"This company has security, that if we didn't know it was a real business, we would have thought to be a joke - a joke that we found much more amusing than they will," reads the Consortium statement.

The group also posted admin login information, as well as serial numbers for Adobe's seemingly expensive interactive Flash software.

The posting ends with some poetic language - quite similar to that of Anonymous and Lulzsec posts - that tips the group's collective hat to all "allied ships that sail in the same waters as us". This is along with a final sign off of: "All your base are belong to us", referencing the mis-translation from the Sega Megadrive port of 1991 title Zero Wing - a common internet meme.
