Skip to comments.Photobucket breach floods Web with racy images
Posted on 08/12/2012 8:05:39 AM PDT by JoeProBono
What happens on social media doesn't always stay on social media. That may be the unfortunate lesson for those who've recently had private photos accessed and shared due to a privacy gap on the photo-sharing website Photobucket.
Nude, explicit, and R-rated images uploaded on the social media site were in some cases made available to view on public Web forums dedicated to exploiting Photobucket's privacy settings. The breach of privacy "is a very rare occurrence that has affected only a small number of Photobucket's users," said Photobucket spokesman David Toner. But the forums, some filled with stolen racy pictures and others with instructions on how to access more, have drawn thousands of viewers......

1) don’t take nude pictures
2) if your grandmother wouldn’t approve, don’t put it on the internet
3) privacy on the world wide web, hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
And CNN couldn’t give us the URL’s of these websites with stolen racy photos?
Before anyone post the usual “This thread is useless without pictures”, be careful what is asked for - lest the request be granted.
Got Eye Bleach and a wire brush?
Some naughty folk are in a panic about now, LOL.
You would not believe how many women take noodz of themselves and send them to guys they like before the 1st or right after the second date...not what you would think of skanks either..most in college. Sexting is rampant.
The second thing is these women have no idea how many other guys those pics get's forwarded too. I would receive them from friends and don't even know many times who the woman even is or barely know them
I post on a fitness site with millions of members which has little to no censorship and you would not believe the pics guys post of their gf's or their friends (with benefits) woman.
OMG - Is that a bribe I see in that behind-the-back handshake?!? LOL
Yeah, my photobucket was compromised last week and they scored no scandalous pics of me or anybody else. Only lots of dogs, home projects, paintings, ex’s, vacation pics, and wild critters. Must have been so disappointing.
Although that last one is a beaut.
Ok, I'll stop now.
1) dont take nude pictures
2) if your grandmother wouldnt approve, dont put it on the internet
A man moves into a nudist colony. He receives a letter from his grandmother asking him to send her a current photo of himself in his new location.
Too embarrassed to let her know that he lives in a nudist colony, he cuts a photo in half but accidentally sends her the bottom half.
He’s really worried when he realizes that he sent the wrong half, but then remembers how bad his grandmother’s eyesight is and hopes she won’t notice.
A few weeks later, he receives a letter from this grandmother. It says, “Thank you for the picture. Change your hair style... it makes your nose look too short.”
"I promise I'll erase the tape."
How can one tell that one’s Photobucket account has been compromised ?
Way to go, grandma!
And when I get round to it will migrate over to another user id like bigbadhandsomebubba or sum such...check your local listings.
