Porn website Digital Playground recently came under cyber attack from members of hacking group “The Collective”. Hackers stole credit card numbers, email addresses and other vital information from the site.

Porn website Digital Playground was shut down on March 5 after the security breach was noticed. After being out for several days, the website made its members’ area available for the users on Monday. However, new users cannot sign up to site for the time being.

According to porn industry news network AVN, personal information of over 73,000 members of Digital Playground has been stolen by the hackers.

Hacker group “The Collective” has claimed responsibility for this attack. The group associates itself with the notorious hacker groups Anonymous and Lulz Security.

According to AVN, Manwin is handling “all aspects of the situation” and is offering detailed information to members regarding the breach.

Digital Playground is owned by the Manwin Holding. It is third porn website belonging to Manwin that has been attacked by the hackers. Earlier, Brazzers and YouPorn.com, owned by Manwin, were also hacked.
