back to article Huge embarrassment over fisting site data breach

A data breach at a forum for "anal fisting" has resulted in the exposure of 107,000 accounts. More than a third (37 per cent) of those affected by the Rosebutt Board were already included in the Have I Been Pwned? site, according to security researcher Troy Hunt. Victims will be able to use Have I Been Pwned? to check whether …

Bummer.

Definite brown trousers when they find the person responsible, butt plug the holes and this sort of leakage won't happen again.

I'm sure the investigation will get to the bottom of this.

"a right pain in the arse for those involved."

Just a pain in the arse? This didnt just stretch their arses, it rect'um!

Though you have to admire these people's tolerance for pain - come on folks, let's give 'em a big hand...

Perhaps a foreign power had a hand in it.

What kind of idiot would you have to be use a work email address (.mil .gov)?

Probably the type of person into anal fisting I guess?

Those who are afraid that using their personal address may inadvertently disclose their "hobby" to their unknowing partner... your work address is much more secure, isn't it? Maybe we'll know more from a future episode of "On Call"....

The same sort who would use their work addy for AshleyMadison.com.

In other words, idiots.

Who now will take it up the @ss, because they like taking it up the @ss. . .

Or possibly, like Ashley Madison, the sort of person who registers someone else as a prank.

I haven't checked my spam folder today but wouldn't be surprised to see a signup for this site. But I think IPBoard actually does email verification, unlike Ashley Madison.

Who knows what sexual proclivities lurk in the hearts of politicians? The Google knows.

Oh! That explains the strong ties between the current administration and the GOOG.

Hmm. I don't know. Anyone with a tsa.gov email address could claim it was merely work related..

The kind that can create & use email addresses belonging to other users in your domain.

ipboard allows admin to choose method. can be no method, user signs up and is done.

can be that with admin approval

can be email setup where user does email authenticate and can also have admin approval needed on top of that.

Re: Let me be the first to (be pedantic)

Check the time stamp.. 2hrs vs 1hr. Remember you can change how comments are viewed, I suspect you only have 'sort comments by thread' (which is the default) so if you reply to a post further up it will push down other threads even if they have an earlier time stamp. If you change it to 'sort comments by oldest' you will see whom bested whom in the timely shenanigans of el reg commentardary ... ...

Yes, poor animal. Probably hemorrhoids.

Anyway, as the first poster stated - a bit of a bummer...

I'm guessing the vulnerability was turned into a large back door.

Bomb bay mechanics are back to biting their nails!

Apparently the tried and tested method in preventing people from biting their nails has been outed as some kind of sexual fetish.

Followers of the "California" technique, where clients regularly apply excreta to alleviate their onychophagy appear to have been targeted by on-line hackers and are fearful that their medical treatment might become more of a social stigma than their nibbled fingers ever were.

We asked a local spokesman for a comment:-

"Arghh! Arghh! Ooooo, Arrrgh..."

Clearly they are in a lot of pain and we as a caring community should come together on this and give them a helping hand.
