The Courtney Stodden sex tape almost came prematurely ... to the Internet. Hackers immediately tried to pilfer the self-pleasure-fest from Vivid.
Fortunately (or unfortunately, to some) their cyber attack failed harder than Doug Hutchison gets after he ... sorry. We'll show ourselves out.
If you've been living under a rock, or just don't scour the Internet for celebrity solo masturbation tapes, there is a Courtney Stodden sex tape.
It was released yesterday on Vivid (dot) com after the busty babe apparently acquiesced and agreed to release the "leaked" XXX footage.
Perhaps it was the $1 million offer she received (she says she's donating profits to charity) or the fact that it extends her 15 minutes of fame.
Maybe both. Either way, she still claims it was stolen but has backed off her initial, strongly-worded threats to block its release in Court.
Anyway, back to the lecture at hand. Yesterday, just as Stodden began streaming, screaming and stroking on Vivid, disaster nearly struck.
The company's IT department noticed someone was trying to steal the code to the tape, presumably to torrent the s--t for free elsewhere.
Wisely, at the direction of CEO Steve Hirsch, Vivid shut down its servers for more than an hour as they scrambled to thwart the invasion.
They got it done, scoring a major victory for the company and delivering a crushing blow to those looking to view free porn on the Internet.
Seriously, if only you could do that anywhere else online.
