People are in tatters after Pornhub was taken down by hackers

Unconfirmed reports (largely from horny and very upset Twitter users) reaching us this morning that everyone's favourite adult entertainment website, Pornhub, was taken offline.

Seemingly claiming responsibility for the outage is the hacker group @PoodleCorp, who you may remember are the very same collective that reckon they caused the Pokemon Go blackout last month.

These guys really don't care about your hobbies.

The news obviously spread quickly on social media, particularly amongst American users for whom it happened in the middle of the night - prime laptop under the covers time.

It's fair to say they were not best pleased.

Poodle Corp were loving it, and retweeted a few tweets to their profile.

But luckily for porn aficionados the supposed hack didn't go on for too long. The site appears to be back in business.

Phew.
