Porn-site users’ data is compromised

LONDON — Users of a chat service linked to the heavily trafficked YouPorn website have had their personal information compromised after a third-party service provider failed to secure its data, YouPorn’s owners said Wednesday.

Luxembourg-based Manwin Holding SARL said the chat site had been disabled and would remain offline until an investigation was carried out.

It remains unclear how many people were affected by the breach, but thousands of leaked email address and password combinations purportedly linked to the chat service were circulating online.

YouPorn is one of the 100 most-popular sites on the planet, according to Web information company Alexa.
