Porn WikiLeaks Exposes Personal Info For Thousands In The Industry

Porn spoofs can be funny. But a new site called Porn WikiLeaks—a send-up of Julian Assange’s government secret site—isn’t. Apparently, the site lists the real names of more than 15,000 people in the porn industry along with their birthdays and in some cases, addresses and Google Maps photos of their homes. And only one-tenth of the people listed on the site are currently working in the industry. Also disconcerting, the leak information appears to come from the databases of the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation (AIM), the organization that provides STD testing for porn performers every 28 days.The leak is an issue, of course, because it’s sure to make some performers hesitant about submitting to testing. And people in the porn industry need to be tested regularly to prevent outbreaks of STDs. AIM is currently figuring out how to handle this situation.

What do you think—is this a violation of privacy?
