Photobucket breach floods Web with racy images
cnn ^ | August 10, 2012 | Julia Grenberg

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......

Before anyone post the usual “This thread is useless without pictures”, be careful what is asked for - lest the request be granted.

1) don’t take nude pictures

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.

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.

1) don’t take nude pictures

2) if your grandmother wouldn’t approve, don’t 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.”

If I told you I'd have to...let's just say some people have way too much time on their hands/enjoy boasting, and I have to leave it at that. I believe photobucket has resolved it, or made it more difficult. Again I have nothing in there I wouldn't share publicly, and have many times, but what I'd change is I'd have chosen a different user id.

And when I get round to it will migrate over to another user id like bigbadhandsomebubba or sum such...check your local listings.

This flashing crotch shot photo of me was taken in 1945, it's stored on Photobucket, hope it wasn't hacked:
