Expert: Subscribers’ Information Being Traded Online
According to forbes.com, BeautifulPeople.com was first notified of the data breach in December 2015. The breach involves the personal information of over 1.1 million subscribers to the dating site, including email addresses, mobile phone numbers, hobbies and interests, and location data, as well as millions of private messages sent between the users of the site.
A security expert has reported that the breached information is being traded online and has the potential to be sold for tens of thousands of dollars. BeautifulPeople.com issued a statement regarding the breach stating:
“The breach involves data that was provided by members prior to mid July 2015. No more recent user data or any data relating to users who joined from mid July 2015 onward is affected.”
The BeautifulPeople.com data breach is the latest in a series of data breaches in the last couple of years. V-Tech, MIE, Ashley Madison, Wendy’s and Mate1 are just a few of the companies that have been involved in data breaches where sensitive personal information was compromised. BeautifulPeople.com, which brags about being “the largest network of attractive people in the world”, tried to reassure their subscribers by claiming that no credit card subscriber information was involved in the data breach, the website reported.
