Popular British subscription site Onlyfans.com is making headlines again. As we reported earlier this week, the site was accused of lackluster security again following reports by Backchannel that a massive folder has been discovered. The security firm revealed that a folder was discovered via a Google Drive link that led to images of thousands of performers images including celebrities. Among those stars are none other than the infamous American star Bella Thorne — who made $1m in a matter of hours on the site.
As initially reported, the folder contains roughly 279 creators (we’ve seen it ourselves but for damages sake we won’t be sharing it here.) The folder contains everybody from Bella Thorne; to Blac Chyna, Tyga, and others. Onlyfans though has since denied that it was hacked but this is not quite the first time such has happened either.
A statement appeared in The Daily Mail this week that claims that the site was not hacked though they have “sent” cease and desist letters to have stolen content pieces removed. It’s worth noting that such likely won’t do much considering the internet never dies.
OnlyFans has not been hacked. Any reports of a security breach are false. There is a group of people purchasing, compiling and then illegally hosting content,’ a spokesperson said.
‘We have sent them a cease and desist letter and filed a WIPO Complaint against the registrant. The registrant has not responded to the Complaint and we are pursuing further legal action.’
