Imlive data leak
Almost 20GB data leaked in 2020 January from PussyCash’s network as VPNmentor.com’s security team discovered.
PussyCash is an affiliate network that owns the brand ImLive, forgetvanilla.com , Sexier.com, FetishGalaxy, Supermen.com, CamsCreative.center, Phonemates.com, idesires.com, sex.sex, Shemale.com, and more…
Imlive is not the biggest whale on the adult cam business, but one of the most famous cam site with more than 66 million registered users, and monthly 5 Million visitors. (plus their Whitelabel and partner sites)
PussyCash leak has exposed more than 4000 cam models’ personal data, which is a very serious issue.
We have no info about if Imlive’s member’s data leaked or not, but VpnMentor did find scanned credit cards as well, which raises some questions regarding this.
Based on the report they found around 875,000 files which could be:
- marketing materials
- screenshots of video chats
- other zip files
These files could be up to 15-20 years old, but there are recent files as well.
PussyCash said there was no evidence anyone else had access to the folders than VPNMentor’s security team.
