British service OnlyFans was created for direct communication between workers in the industry of sex and their fans. These people here can maintain closed erotic blogs, posting pictures and videos for subscribers.
A subscription price is a few tens of dollars per month. Also, fans can leave a tip if they particularly liked a particular post.
The service is also used by ordinary bloggers who use it to share some more personal pictures and impressions with fans.
As OnlyFans support reported in a conversation with journalists, the hackers failed to hack the service database, but the archive is spreading over the network by 1.5-4 terabytes. The company representatives believe that the current situation is similar to the story with the leak of intimate photos from smartphones of celebrities – the infrastructure remained intact, and the attackers collected data from different sources. OnlyFans explained that this is not a data breach, and the company did not find any evidence of a breach in the company’s system. According to them, the files were collected into one archive from many different sources, including social networks. After examining the archive, the journalists also concluded that several users were engaged in its assembly. They paid for the content first, and then shared it with others. Gradually, the base was assembled.

Service principle of work
Accounts on OnlyFans have a lot of models and bloggers. According to the information in media, it is difficult to trace the source of the leak. The archive can be seen on different hosting services and disappears – while its size is constantly changing.
After the incident, many of OnlyFans stars were attacked on social media.
Content authors are understandably worried. Sex workers wrote to me in private messages and asked if they were on the list. Unfortunately, they have attracted trolls who victimize women and call them “geeks.”
The user of source usually understands that sooner or later it will appear on the network. There are Telegram channels and blogs entirely dedicated to the “pirated” publication of this site’s paid content. You don’t even need a hack for this. It’s enough to jointly pay for a monthly subscription of the star of interest for a month.
At the same time, industry representatives note that the problems of OnlyFans can affect the lives of many people. Sex workers and bloggers rely on income from this service. In the UK, the media often write about users who gave up work and study, gaining popularity on OnlyFans, sometimes it’s about tens of thousands of dollars in revenue in a couple of weeks.
The popularity wouldn’t suffer
However, the site is unlikely to cease to be popular: many girls are still working through it. With the help of OnlyFans, they can promote their careers and earn money on their terms – and even Steven Spielberg’s daughter decided to join them. And sometimes nudes and photos from the service can even serve a good purpose: for example, through OnlyFans they unexpectedly managed to help Australia, suffering from fires, because not all heroes wear raincoats.
