The same thing happened to the Beautiful People portal as recently as last week, but also to Mate1 at the start of March, and Adult Friend Finder and Ashley Madison last year.

Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.

The Sponsored Listings displayed above are served automatically by a third party.

As with any adult dating website, details about his sexual preferences were also part of the peddled data.

A representative confirmed some of the data's authenticity but also said it was part of a five-year-old data breach that took place in 2011.

Cox says that he was able to confirm only 61 emails of the 101 addresses included in the sample data provided by the hacker.

He says that some of the accounts appeared to belong to site admins because they had the "admin_disabled" flag turned off.

Last month, the hacker Peace_of_mind was selling details for 3.8 million users registered on the Naughty America adult network.

Back in February, he was selling the Linux Mint forum database on the same marketplace.
