Over 40,000 credit card numbers stolen in 'Digital Playground' website hack

   Mar 13, 5:11 pm

Washington,Mar 13 (ANI): A previously unknown hacking group has reportedly broken into a major pornography website and stolen the personal details of over 72,000 users, and over 40,000 credit card numbers.

The Consortium said it had breached the security of the Digital Playground website, which is run by a company called Manwin.

"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. We did not set out to destroy them but they made it too enticing to resist. So now our humble crew leave lulz and mayhem in our path," the Telegraph quoted the hacking group, as saying in a message posted on the Digital Playground website.

The Consortium also posted samples of the data it cklaimed to have stolen, including unencrypted credit card data.

"We not only have the 72k users of this site but also over 40k plaintext credit cards including CCVs, names and expiry dates," it added.

The Consortium also published, what it said, was a sample of internal e-mails and software licences to show it had gained complete access to Digital playground's systems.

The Digital Playground website was restored following the apparent hack, but it has been closed to new members.

A Manwin statement said the breach might have occurred before it took over the running of the website on March 1.

The group used a similar jocular tone to that of a hacking group, LulzSec in its post, and referenced Anonymous and the "Antisec" campaign, a series of cyber attacks on the websites of the CIA, SOCA and other authorities. (ANI)
