Anti-climax for VR porn fans after data breach

Virtual reality pornography fans have been left feeling deflated after learning that their personal details were left exposed.

Fruity but bungling app SinVR contained a flaw that allowed any interested party access to the names and email addresses of around 20,000 enthusiasts.

The shortcoming was revealed by British cybersecurity outfit Digital Interruption, which kindly alerted SinVR about the gaping inadequacy.

The porn firm has since promised to tighten things up.

Although no payment details were exposed, Digital Interruption said in a blog that ‘due to the nature of the application, it is potentially quite embarrassing to have details like this leaked’.

SinVR presents consumers with a virtual world in which they can live out their fantasies – that is providing their fantasies revolve around poorly rendered CGI models of the human form.

According to its website, SinVR offers ‘your wildest dreams made real’ – again, that depends on whether your wildest dreams involve having your personal details pilfered and then used to expose you as a user of virtual reality pornography.

In the future, when we’ve done away with relationships and physical contact with one another, and spend our evenings in virtual pleasure worlds free of pressures, dealing with things and thinking, we’ll look back at incidents like this and laugh. Probably.
