His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

AIM Database Has Been Compromised.

If you have ever tested at AIM or any of AIM’s satellite draw stations all of your information is now in the hands of people who shouldn’t have it.

This started with a site that popped up with pretty much every performer’s ID info on it. Everyone was wondering how that information got out, males, females everyone. It started being whispered that it was sold by one or more companies or that it was supplied with screeners, then it started being whispered that it was from AIM.

Now proving something like this would be difficult except, people started emailing me saying “I only used that performer name one time, ever and that was when I tested at AIM.” First I verified two people, then two more both of whom shot only one time, but were required to get an AIM test. All made up a performer name and of the four two never even used the same name on a model release and one never even shot, the shoot fell through. Yet all the names and hundreds even thousands of others appear on this real name list on this site.

Incidentally I have never tested at AIM and my name does NOT appear on this list, even though my real name is readily available to anyone who wants to find it.

If you have ever tested at AIM you may want to call them, or better yet send them a certified letter demanding that all of your info be removed from their database. Even though the damage is done, it is clear that AIM has no direct knowledge how it happened so it could and probably will happen again.

I doubt that AIM actually sold the database, more likely it is just a case of lack of security, allowing someone who shouldn’t have had access to be able to dump the whole database, likely with address and birthdate and other info as well as name.
