Porn looker “NOC list” is in the open

This could win the “Irony Of The Year” award. The US Government tries grabbing Google search results, all the while claiming the need is for the fight against pr0nography (child in particular). Meanwhile, a huge list of pr0nography viewers names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and IP addresses are found floating around on the internet. How huge a list? Uh, 17 million records huge.

The records seem to trace back to a company called iBill, which was one of the biggest billing agents for adult content. iBill was purchased by a bigger fish, only to run into lots of trouble with chargebacks and weary partners. The list is reported to be a MySQL dumpfile greater that four gigs in size, suggesting an inside job.

The Google request may now be a non-issue. Getting outed for being on this list is another matter altogether.
