Submission + - The Consortium Hacks Porn Site (

An anonymous reader writes: The Consortium is a new hacktivist group. It has introduced itself to the world by hacking the pornography website Digital Playground (NSFW). The Consortium stole 40,000 plain-text financial credentials (credit card numbers, names, CCV numbers, and expiration dates) as well as the personal information (e-mail addresses, usernames, and passwords) of 72,000 users. Last but not least, they gained root access to four of the site’s servers, which further let them access corporate e-mails, and listened in on the company’s conference calls.
