Date: 2/23/2012

There are two things we didn't know people still did: Pay for porn and sign up for porn sites. We really don't know why people would sign up for a porn website that lets you stream videos for free. But, whatever. Earlier this year, the popular streaming porn its, YouPorn, had a large number of its users account info exposed thanks to a security breach. The site wasn't hacked, rather the breach occurred "by someone sweeping websites for publicly accessible, but non-linked folders, looking for either porn or sensitive material like this, and struck gold," said Swedish online security expert Anders Nilsson.
