Another Dating Site Hacked But You Have Nothing to Worry About.

Looks like another dating site has been hacked but unless you're super hot, you've got nothing to worry about. Beautifulpeople.com, an elite dating website for the exclusively good looking, has reportedly had the private data of more than 1 million users leaked. The breach leaked information such as addresses, sexual preferences and incomes, as well as millions of private messages. The website is famous for excluding unattractive people by having existing members rate those trying to sign up. Prospective members must pass a certain ratings threshold to be allowed on the website and millions have been denied access. Many current members have also been removed for gaining weight after joining. The site claims to be "the largest dating community of attractive people in the world" and to have spawned 700 marriages. The site was originally hacked in December, when the breach appeared to be confined to a database of test accounts. However, the data of real users is now being traded online per security expert Troy Hunt. Dozens of different details are reportedly included in the leak, among them education, phone numbers and location data. More damaging, however, can simply be the existence of a profile on a dating website, especially for those who may not want their existence made public.   (Telegraph)
