Thousands of visitors to porn website, YouPorn.com are facing embarrassment after email addresses were leaked by hackers.

6,433 subscribers to the live chat service were left exposed themselves after a third party service provider failed to adequately secure its data.

The addresses were subsequently published on the Pastebin website, meaning employers and marital partners can search for individuals with a simple mouse click.

YouPorn has been taken offline by its owners, Manwin Holdings, pending an investigation into the breach.

A Manwin spokesperson said: “YouPorn continues to ensure that all appropriate measures and tools are in place to maintain the security of its infrastructure, and to safeguard the privacy of its users.”
