Leaky Porn Health Clinic Shut Down

AIM Healthcare, the private clinic that ran STD tests for California's porn industry, has shut down just a month after news broke that its testing database had been breached and leaked by a Wikileaks knockoff. This has thrown a kink in the porn industry, as AIM was responsible for the majority of STD testing. "AIM has not issued a press release nor made any comment or hint on their website that they have closed," writes porn insider Violet Blue (NSFW). "Disturbingly, their site AimCheck.net has been taken offline. This means anyone who had good tests can no longer access the test results or have them accessed – the online proof and verification of having clean tests is gone."

In the end, though, it's probably a good thing AIM is being shut down—at least from a privacy standpoint. AIM has already been sued by former porn actresses which accuse the clinic of privacy breaches. And It clearly wasn't equipped to keep sensitive personal information out of the hands of the jackasses who run Porn Wikileaks, which posted a list of over 15,000 performers' real names using data stolen from AIM.

Porn Wikileaks, meanwhile, is still casting a shadow over the porn industry.
