A data breach expert reports that personal data, including email addresses and direct messages, has been stolen from users of two dating websites by hackers.

Earlier this week, a data breach was reported on two dating websites, CityJerks and TruckerSucker. The breach was brought to the attention of Troy Hunt, the founder of Have I Been Pwned, a website that informs people of data breaches. Hunt stated that he had analyzed the stolen data, which included sensitive information such as usernames, email addresses, passwords, profile pictures, sexual orientation, users’ date of birth, their city and state, their IP addresses, and biographies.

According to Hunt, the passwords were encrypted with a weak algorithm that could be easily broken, which may allow hackers to reveal users' actual passwords. The stolen data also contained hookup messages and sexual preferences of users, which Hunt referred to as "highly sensitive content."

The breach was reportedly advertised on a hacking forum, with the seller claiming that the TruckerSucker database contained information on 8,000 users, while the CityJerks database contained data from 77,000 users. TechCrunch independently verified that the data stolen from the two websites was being advertised on the forum.

CityJerks markets itself as a platform for mutual masturbation partners, encouraging users to "connect on an ever deeper level" with their sweetie, partner, or fellow member. Meanwhile, TruckerSucker is advertised as a site to meet "masculine men," specifically "REAL TRUCKERS and REAL MEN."

The administrator of the two websites did not respond to requests for comment on the breach or on measures being taken to protect users' data in the future. The reported data breach on CityJerks and TruckerSucker serves as another reminder of the ongoing threat of cyber attacks and the need for strong cybersecurity measures to protect sensitive personal information.
