If you've been looking for a new, Tinder-style app where you can meet guys who love curvy women, Woo Plus is here for you, girl.
The Daily Dot reports the app started when co-founders Neil Raman and Michelle Li were talking with some friends about a video they'd seen where men were set up with a woman they thought was thinner than she was, in an effort to shame the woman because of her size.
Li says she and her friends found the video odd because they knew men who specifically wanted to date larger women.
Both the parties claim that their database contains real-time information like names, email addresses, encoded passwords, geo-location information, and more than 100 personal data traits featuring sexual preferences, hobbies, drinking habits, favorite movies, and plenty of other data characteristics that are a signature for these dating websites.
The Beautiful People has been notorious online off late since it was much publicized rather criticized for being judgmental as they only have “beautiful people” who are chosen after a lengthy survey and only selected on the basis of their attractiveness.
In an infamous incident in 2009, it was revealed that Beautiful People rejected around 1.8 million people from their website due to loss of hair, age and weight gain, website operators also frequently removed the “not-so-attractive folks, this did not go down well with public.
The stolen data was later sent by some cryptic hacker to Hunt who confirmed its legitimacy assisted by a Forbes reporter.
Beautiful People hacked database also allegedly featured over 15 million of private messages BOY THAT’S SOME HACK!
Another scandal is already in the air as Forbes staff writer, claims to have known about the insecure, unsafe database since last December, he allegedly was informed by Mac Keeper’s security researcher Chris Vickery.
The two contacted Beautiful People, who told them the database they had discovered, was only a test server and that no actual user information was exposed.
The big news was broken on Twitter where Troy Hunt who is the operator of the Have IBeen made a public announcement stating that due to the insecure Mango DB test server left unguardedly open, without an admin password, millions of clients’ data was leaked and exposed on the Dark Web where their personal details are being traded.
The details of the leaked customer accounts have been on display on Hunt’s service website, all those registered with Beautiful can check out the Hunt’s service and search for their email address and find out if their details are lying there after the big leak.
However, Beautiful People tried to explain but their explanation does not hold weight.
As Hunt also threw some light on the issue that he suspects some hacker found the database, downloaded it and put it up for sale on some secretive data trading forum.
