Hackers attack Polish "erotic dating" site, threaten to expose users

GW has reported that a Polish "erotic dating" site has been attacked by hackers who have broken into their user list. The hackers are blackmailing site owners for one million zł and threatening ot publish the list of users.

Personally I think they should. Why facilitate sneakiness and underhanded activities? They should have the courage of their convictions. Personally I beleive the entire web should be de-anonymised and all net comments should identify the commentator. PF should also list posters' data. That would clean the net of lots of garbage and nonsense and people could stand up for what they as individuals truly believe in without playing games and hiding behind nicks.

You for one would never work again were that the case and would probably be prosecuted for hate speech against ethnic minorities.

hate speech

Hate speech -- another PC-invented taboo so people can distinguish who it is OK and progressive to hate and where it is prohibited.

There's nothing at all stopping you from posting under your real name. I'll even vouch for your identity myself. You could repost your comments from PF onto your Facebook profile too.

It makes me laugh that there are people still out there who think their Internet is private. Than again seeing the level of most peoples computer skills it's not that much of surprise.

But if you don't break the law it is private.

a) No it isn't.
b) PIS certainly don't want it to be (unless it's them ordering the hookers and watching the p0rn).

Yes. Anything online can potentially stay there for as long as computers exist.

But if you don't break the law it is private.

Just as people using online dating are not breaking the law. The hackers however are very much breaking the law.

Ok, so tell me what's my name? You see, for you my internet is private.

my internet is private.

If anybody wanted to, they could simply hire hackers to access PF, get your IP numbers and go from there. It's just a question of wanting to. At the moment you are simply not worth bothering with, as with the rest of your life.

However, if you really believe that your internet is private, post a couple of hundred words in which you detail a plan you have to assassinate the president of the USA and you call for all Muslims in the UK to be exterminated, that should let you know how private your internet is.

Nope Harold it takes much less than a couple of hundred words. All you need to do is to regularly type in the google search engine thinks like "child porn" or " how to make a bomb at home?" to get attention of certain organs.

Wow, has anybody ever told you how amazingly knowledgeable individual you are?

as with the rest of your life.

Why you keep mentioning my life, still butthurt about me making more money than you? can't you just move on?

It's private for most people because they are ordinary citizens and no.one has anything to gain by looking at it. When someone figures out why your content is worth money the privacy may end. It also seems private to most as they have no understanding of how most of it works beyond the surface net we are on now. People think they are using the internet when in reality it's just the surface much like the crust of the earth is, it's all we see living on it but there is more underneath. Far more.

Internet is private

Not to our indefatigable CIA. They can tap into any computer or cellphone on the planet. Some of the Silicon Valley geeks have tried to encrypt their access but that's no problem for the CIA lads -- they can decrypt anything that moves for the greater glory of freedom, demoracy and the American way of life!

Sure they can tap it but if it contains nothing of interest there really is no consequence and the person still thinks they have privacy.

For most users yes, but if you know how to use Tor browser correctly which is not that hard you are practically untraceable.

Yes wulkan there are definate levels of difficulty. I am using ordinary crap at the moment as I have no sensitive content on any of these computers and phones.

Not anymore. Did you not see that story from a couple of months ago how the FBI managed to get into Tor?

wired.com/2016/02/fbis-tor-hack-shows-risk-subpoenas-security-researchers/

they can decrypt anything that moves

Not if it's encrypted to 256-bit standard. But then again, the CIA would probably just kidnap your family until you handed over the password.

just kidnap your family

Naw, nothing that primtive. They're not from KOD or PO! They just deploy their poly-reconfigurable mega-decryption accelerators and it's pure child's play.

That's stupid, but people need to be more aware of what they're doing when they put their information out there online.

Very very sensible. It's also worth googling yourself (and use the right search terms, not just your name especially if it's a common one), seeing what's out the and taking what steps you can to make sure it's all OK.

And never, ever, post your full name and address (and certainly not d.o.b) together online.

But online dating should be private. There's nothing remotely wrong with it (as long as you're discerning about who you agree to meet and take sensible precautions.

nothing remotely wrong

There is to those ripped off, used or molested. From what I have observed typically many provide false data, younger age, better education, better job, younger photo as a come-on. Not infrequently after a meet-up has occurred and the relationship has developed the conning side experiences a contrived tragedy (mother's death, child needing emergency treatment, mafia threats over unpaid gambling debts, etc.). The smooth-talking side may succeed in having property signed over to them or a will changed in their favour.

Such problems also occurred in the day of non-digital matrimonial agencies but the e-gadgetarian era provicdes far greater opportunities for con artists and exploiters.
The bottom line is that anyone choosing such a non-covnentional road in search of marital bliss should proceed with great caution.

posting under your real name

Since there's nothign stopping one from posting under your real name and you made such a statement, we're all waiting with bated breath to see your true particulars. For instance:

Harold Muckmiser, Al. Jana Pawła II 32 m. 5, cell 601 822 903....
or something along those lines.

matchmaking

But acting under false pretences, con artisrty and scamsterism is not matchmaking. Polish traditonal matchmaking was quite an involved affair, but probably not many on here are interested in Polish ethnogrpahy.

You should start a thread about it Polonius, I'd be interested in learning more about such topics.

About encryption - the thing is that it's only as strong as the humans behind it. The guy that had the original Silk Road got caught because he was sloppy, not because the encryption was broken.

Any of that going on here?

Or just a dating service that you don't approve of. Perhaps you think it would be better if they were on their knees in church.

ating service

Dating service indeed? E-deception, e-conning, e-scamming, e-exploitation and all so some e-operator could get rich. Why not just visit a bordello. It's more
honest because the merchandise you see is what you get.
If the e-dating goes beoynd the virtual stage, you can catch HIV, clap, pubic lice and other "goodies" all the same.

Indeed.

So what? Is it any business of yours what people do in their private lives?

Nobody is forcing you to sign up to a lonely hearts' club...

So what?

Isn't one allowed to observe and comment on the passing scene anymore? Is that the latest definition of PC-style "un-freedom" of speech?
