Security flaw in virtual reality porn app SinVR exposes personal info of 20,000 users

Joe Pinkstone reports:

SinVR, a virtual reality porn app with 20,000 members, had a huge security flaw that exposed the personal details of its members to potential hackers.

SinVR is a app that allows people to explore different sexual scenarios and interact with various characters in the virtual world.

London-based cybersecurity firm Digital Interruption found a hidden ‘backdoor’ in the software which gave outsiders access to the user names and emails of the members.

Of note, the security firm attempted to responsibly disclose to SinVR, but reportedly received no reply, leading them to go public with their findings.

Digital Interruptions tracked down usernames, emails and even PayPal details of customers.

Once SinVR (finally?) became aware of the problem, it seems to have been addressed fairly quickly.
