Slick Porn Peddlers pay Facebook

The Canadian Press is reporting that a Toronto-based Internet porn company has agreed to pay Facebook $500K after it allegedly hacked the popular social networking website’s computers. The lawsuit against the numbered Ontario company, which does business online under the name SlickCash (NSFW), has been settled in a US court. In addition to the cash payout, SlickCash and several people associated with the site also agreed not to become members of Facebook for 10 years – which is a very, very long time in the Internet world.

According to court documents recently entered into an online legal database, the suit was settled in April. Facebook alleged that over a two week period in June of 2007, the defendants attempted to access Facebook’s servers at least 200,000 times and gain unauthorized access to Facebook’s friend-finder functionality.
