Pornhub Enters Cryptocurrency World, Finds Only Problems On The Way

Pornhub, the leading porn site of the entire web, has denied that a hack on the verge, the only cryptocurrency accepted by them, could give an attacker access to the user database. This declaration was made after verge endured three hacks in less than a two months period.
The hack was mentioned by the notable poster ocminer in the bitcointalk forums, was first denied by the leading verge dev, Justin Vendetta; but later was mentioned on Twitter by Daniel Goldman, editor of the Abacus Crypto Journal, who mentioned specifics about the subject.

This has led to some controversy about this business being dissolved and possible data breaches by some cryptocurrency specialized pages. An online tabloid, the “ICO Journal” published an article stating that Pornhub was having second thoughts about the business; and also mentioned that an unnamed source claimed that they were worried about possible user info theft. The article stated that an unnamed Pornhub source told:

“You can imagine the possible brand damage that could cause us serious pain should hackers find their way into our user database via a back door like Verge.”

This disastrous declaration led to a swift response on Twitter by Pornhub Aria, the official account of Pornhub, who asked to remove the article, stating that there were no such conversations and that there was no way that a potential attacker could find a way into their user database using verge as a vehicle.

Truly, the partnership with Pornhub was reached in part because Verge, being advertised as a secure, privacy-based coin, would be fit to keep your porn private, not appearing on your bank statement on the bed table. But there have been no reports for the things that are affirmed by the mentioned page, and they don’t even mention a source for it, encouraging Pornhub to take possible legal actions for it. Justin Sunarok, the lead verge dev in the bitcointalk forums, did not acknowledge this latest attack, but he did say that they were reviewing their code to avoid new hacks in the future.
