Several U.S. government and military employees are set for an embarrassing day at work today after hackers published the emails of over 25,000 subscribers to an x-rated porn website - including four who signed up using .gov and .mil addresses.
The government employees - one of whom signed up using his White House work address - include an Air National Guardsman and two army employees as well as officials from the Malaysian government.
The hack was carried out by a group calling themselves Lulz Security, or LulzSec, who obtained the email addresses and passwords from site Pron before publishing the complete list on Friday afternoon.
The group, who are self styled pranksters hacking and publishing details for 'fun', wrote on the top of the release: 'Hi! We like porn (sometimes), so these are email/password combinations from pron.com which we plundered for the lulz.'
LuzSec also told their followers to exploit the release for further embarrassment.
LulzSec urged their followers to tell friends and family members of those who had their details released by logging on to Facebook using the password and user name combinations.
