 The 4chan pr0n Leak: First of Many?

The Web probably looks a lot less anonymous and private to the thousands of people whose identities were posted to the Internet this weekend alongside the names of the pr0nographic films they are accused of downloading.

ACS: Law, a law firm based in Great Britain that tracks down alleged illegal file sharers for the pr0n industry, saw its

 database compromised over the weekend caused by members of the Internet forum 4chan. In addition to private e-mails and financial data belonging to the law firm, the names of people whom ACS: Law has accused of downloading unauthorized copies of pr0n movies were also revealed.

The blog

 Torrentfreak reported that among the information posted to the Web were e-mails from people pleading for mercy and "married men who have been confronted with allegations of sharing gay pr0n."

The exact number of people named is unclear, but estimates in the media range from 4,000 to 8,000. Officials from Britain's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), which oversees data protection in that country, said it will investigate the leak. One of the questions that the law firm is sure to be asked is why was such sensitive information not encrypted? Attempts by CNET to reach ACS: Law were unsuccessful.

For Americans, in turn, the question is: could this happen in the United States? The answer is a definitive "yes." The same kind of information that the British law firm stored is being collected by some antipiracy groups here. The leak at ACS: Law, according to Justin Brookman, a senior fellow from the Center for Democracy and Technology, has revealed a privacy time bomb.

"There's no doubt about it," Brookman said. "These companies...can track your information and create detailed records about you...once they get it there are very few protections in place. The information isn't even guaranteed to be accurate."

The 4chan group has declared war recently against pro-copyright groups. Last weekend, 4chan launched a denial-of-service attack against Web sites operated by trade groups representing the largest film studios and music labels and there's no indication that 4chan has any intention of calling off the digital a.ssault.

Of course, the best way to avoid a potentially embarrassing disclosure of your pr0n tastes is to avoid downloading pirated pr0n in the first place. But for those people who already have, there appears to be little in the way of guaranteeing that they won't end up like the thousands of people whose pr0n-viewing habits were exposed in Great Britain.

"For them," said Brookman "this has to be terrifying."

If you download or share pr0n I think they are exposing you, to who I dont know but im guessing police and family and friends, but 4chan is f!ghting back somehow
so if you downloaded Gay pr0n you may be exposed

In spirit of this story we should compile a list of boxden users like these three f**ks who are worthless retards.


On topic if this s**t happened in the US it would be crazy. The list would be like 3/4th of our population and no one would give a f**k if they were on it lol. Knowing the people we have here they'd download even more to compete for who could be at the top of the list with the most downloads of the sickest s**t.
