If you get your kicks from porn site Brazzers you might want to check your account pretty quickly as nearly 800,000 user log ins and passwords have been hacked and shared. 

Motherboard—the technology division of Vice—confirmed that it had been given 790,724 user email addresses and passwords taken from the Brazzers forum site. 

Motherboard were informed of the breach by Troy Hunt, a security researcher and creator of the website 'Have I Been Pwned?'

Matt Stevens, public relations manager from Brazzers, spoke to Motherboard to explain why porn hacks can be particularly dangerous for those targeted:

"When it's solely membership of an adult website, you know the person has an interest in adult material, which, whilst potentially embarrassing, tells you very little about them. Once they're commenting within a forum though, now you have very personal information about their intimate thoughts. We also know that forum breaches frequently include not just user credentials, but private messages as well, and those can be particularly revealing,"
