It doesn't matter whether you visit this website or no but you cannot deny the fact that you know about this website called P*rnhub. Such is the reputation of this amazing (if I can say so) website.

#5 It Allowed Them To...
So this team of hackers, gained remote code execution. It allowed them to Dump the complete database of p*rnhub.com including all sensitive user information.
It also helped them in tracking and observing user behavior on the platform. Now this is quite an information.
#4 The Distortion
They even leaked the complete available source code of all sites hosted on the server. They distorted the entire buildup of the website.
#3 Two zero-day vulnerabilities
You must be wondering what a Zero Day Flaw is. It is a vulnerability that is unknown to the vendor. The hackers discovered a couple of them. Dangerous, right?
#2 Any Security?
But this incident forced me to think one simple thing. How can a website as big as p*rnhub can't have a security system?
Well, turns out that just a few months ago the site announced a bug bounty program with HackerOne. The program offers to pay out a reward up to $25,000 for "skilled security researchers" who uncover vulnerabilities on the site.
#1 White-Hat Hackers
Luckily, the hackers were white-hat hackers. These are the type of hackers who hack for good. They informed P*rnHub developers of the issues so that they could improve security. And, they got paid handsomely for this.
