Hacker leaks more than 12,000 user records from German fetish forum

A hacker has posted a database of more than 12,000 user records belonging to users of a German fetish website, sharing it on both a popular hacking forum and their own social media channel.

The hacker, who goes by the online name Spoofer, is disseminating the data in a remarkably no-nonsense manner, sharing a sample of the database on the hacking forum, with a link to their Telegram channel for the complete dataset.

The data is being shared for free, and the hacker is offering little commentary on why they’re sharing the data in the first place – other than that they can.


The data itself – all 12,166 lines – appears to be a list of users of Domina Forum, a German fetish website for BDSM practitioners looking to find a mistress. The site breaks down kinksters via region and city in Germany, as well as providing sub-forums based around particular sexual practices, such as latex or high-heel fetishes.

Listed for each user is the email address they registered under, including their hashed password. The user’s time zone and region are also listed, alongside details of their forum avatar and signature. One column is dedicated entirely to the sexual interests of each user and another to their occupation.

The data appears accurate, as many of the current moderators of the forum are listed in the database. The Domina Forum site itself lists a total of more than 52,000 users, however, so this list appears to be either incomplete or listing only active users. The website lists the most recent person to sign up, but they are not listed in this database.

Domina Forum has been online since 2003 and features 268,317 posts.

Cyber Daily has reached out to Domina Forum for comment.
