4chan christian dating Seks porno chat albania
Given consumer password security is usually poor, it's no surprise that many victims used the same login credentials on both sites, which is one possible route of attack.Or it could be that email accounts associated with profiles at the Christian dating website were hit first, before Facebook account passwords were reset.The Next Web reports that Paypal and Amazon accounts were affected by the same hack, a factor that strongly suggests victims' email accounts might have been compromised.Either way, once Facebook accounts were pwned the denizens of 4chan wasted no time posting unflattering or inflammatory remarks or images before waiting for victims' friends to pile in.
They got into a christian dating community, got hold of user details for the facebook accounts of some of the users of this christian dating site, and used them to set up this joke, and a few more it seems. Knowing the fools that frequent that sordid excuse for a website were behind this takes a lot of the fun of this straight out. seriously, if a girl sent me that message the next day i dont think i would talk to her anymore, its a red flag.
However, if you could tell your boss or clients that they were asking you to do something illegal, you’d be in a much stronger position to push back.
Now I am not a lawyer, but the other day, I took a close look at the Data Protection Act 1998, and if I understand it correctly, saving passwords in clear text is indeed illegal here in the UK.
The Christian dating website that got hacked by 4chan back in August was a textbook illustration of why you should not store users’ passwords in plain text.
Most of the users of the site had re-used their user names and passwords on Facebook and their e-mail accounts, which were compromised as a result, in many cases in extremely embarrassing ways.
Reading about this (and a similar event somewhat closer to home a week later) has got me thinking about the whole issue again.
