Be Scared! Hackers Might Share Your Porn History

 Hackers Might Share Your Porn History

All Ye Porn addicts – If you are watching porn online in 2015, even in Incognito mode, expect that at some point Hackers might share your Porn History online. According to an extensive research conducted by Brett Thomas, Porn Watchers everywhere are being tracked and as a result of this tracking system, hackers can produce an extensive list of every clip  viewed. At any point in time, somebody could post a website that allows you to search anybody by email or facebook username to view their porn history.

How is this possible? According to the information culled from Brett Thomas’s  website, you can be tracked based on these  four factors

  • Browser footprints: Web browsers leave an essentially unique footprint every time you visit a web page, even in Incognito mode (and even without supercookies). This is well established; many web tools such as Panopticlick will confirm that you give a website lots of information about your computer every time you visit.
  • Global identifiers: Linking your browser footprint on one website to your footprint on another website – or to a previous footprint on the same website – is straightforward. You should think of your browser footprint as a persistent global identifier, and this is particularly true if you don’t take any measures to hide your IP address (eg. a VPN). 
  • User tracking: Tracking web users are super valuable, so almost every traditional website that you visit saves enough data to link your user account to your browser fingerprint, either directly or via third parties. 
  • Hacking is ubiquitous: We hear about data breaches that involve tangible harm – Target, Anthem, TurboTax – but not the (likely great majority) of cases when hackers don’t want additional exposure. Or, paraphrasing the FBI director: There are two types of companies…those that know they’ve been hacked…and those that don’t know they’ve been hacked.

In order to make you understand this I’d use an example, Let’s say you go to xvideos and  click on “BDSM”, what happens internally is, you are sending a request to the porn site, you are also sending a third-party requests to Google, to the web-tracking company and to a company called Pornvertising lastly and note this is what the hackers can latch onto,  You’re also sending other data that can be used to identify your computer, like your IP address and if you think erasing your internet history wipes out the record of  your Gay or MILF videos…think again. 

Brett said in order for him to get a better idea of how this tracking works, He used the privacy app Ghostery, which identifies and blocks tracking elements installed on web pages, to investigate the top five most visited porn sites—XVideos, XHamster, Pornhub, XXNX, and Redtube. Ghostery revealed that each site has tracking elements installed, and thus is transmitting data to a number of third-party corporations, including Google, ​Tumblr, and industry-specific ad services like Pornvertising and DoublePimp.

It is this tracking abilities that has helped the NSA spy on Muslim men’s porn habits. Now just picture this, there is someone out there that knows the type of porn you like watching – now maybe this would deter you from watching porn at least.

With this said, it is only a matter of time before these hackers are able to share all your Porn viewing history and if they do, it would be biggest internet privacy scandal in the history of the Internet. 

So how can you avoid your name linking to a MILF video or worse?

MissTechy’s Solution to this dilemena

1. Use a VPN. Even Hola will do. You’re welcome. Fap in peace. ( Most viable solution)

2.  Get Two different computers, two different browsers, two different identities, one for business, one for pleasure. ( LOL you must be a Porn addict if you are considering this)

3. Get a CD, there are many out there (Oh well they sell this for N150 – not that I have gotten any before  -_- )
