    No web-connected service is safe. If you need more proof of this, consider a recent alleged attack on a porn site that apparently gave a hacker access to more than 237,000 accounts. In the aftermath of the Apple vs. FBI squabble over iPhone encryption, this is a reminder that strong security is needed for connected devices and products.

    According to Motherboard, an unknown hacker claims to have stolen the login credentials belonging to users of a porn website called Team Skeet, part of the Paper Street Media (PSM) network.

    Motherboard was able to verify some of the credentials the hacker offered, but couldn't confirm whether the hacker indeed had access to that many accounts or whether they were stolen in a recent heist.

    "I want to publicly shame them for their poor practices," the hacker says.

    He's now selling the credentials on the dark web for almost one bitcoin, or around $400 each. The data includes user names and passwords, as well as physical addresses and emails. The hacker told Motherboard he had access to credit card data but did not take it. The credentials, however, supposedly work on 23 online properties belonging to PSM.
