My Free Cams.com, which describes itself as “The #1 adult webcam community,” has terrible password security, for both its users and, more importantly, its models, Motherboard has learned.The site actually undermines strong passwords created by its users, Motherboard has found. ”, simply typing in “password” would access the account.If a password contains upper and lower case, as well as punctuation, it is bypassed by simply typing in the password in lowercase, while omitting any special characters. This is especially concerning because cam girls may be at a heightened risk of stalking or harassment.It's not totally clear why My Free has implemented its password system in this way.
“Generally it's done as a sort of balance between usability and security,” Troy Hunt, owner of breach data site told Motherboard in a phone call.
Perhaps the site developers felt that people will forget the casing on their password, so the website automatically lower-cases everything instead.
According to Alexa, it is just shy of being in the top thousand most popular websites worldwide.
Motherboard learned of the problem from an anonymous tipster, who said that My Free hosts “women whose real names and exact locations are a closely guarded secret.”A cam girl who helped Motherboard verify the claims said “I had no idea it was like that.
Makes me want to reconsider where I cam.”Cam girls who work on the site should immediately change their passwords to something not used on any other services, and make sure the password consists of a high number of characters.
They might also consider using a password manager, which automatically generates random, complex passwords and stores them securely on a computer.
