Adult friend finder exposed online dating websites free
It also has a slight benefit, as Leaked Source writes that "the credentials will be slightly less useful for malicious hackers to abuse in the real world." For a subscription fee, Leaked Source allows its customers to search through data sets it has collected. "We don't want to comment directly about it, but we weren't able to reach a final decision yet on the subject matter," the Leaked Source representative says.
In May, Leaked Source removed 117 million emails and passwords of Linked In users after receiving a cease-and-desist order from the company.
In May 2015 it was revealed that 3.9 million Adult Friend Finder accounts had been stolen by a hacker nicknamed ROR[RG] (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).
The alleged leak is likely to cause panic among users who created accounts on Friend Finder Network properties, which primarily are adult-themed dating/fling websites, and those run by subsidiary Steamray Inc., which specializes in nude model webcam streaming.
Troy Hunt, an Australian data breach expert who runs the Have I Been Pwned data breach notification site, says that at first glance some of the data appears legitimate, but it's still early to make a call. "I'd need to see a complete data set to make an emphatic call on it." If the data is accurate, it would mark one of the largest data breaches of the year behind Yahoo, which in October blamed state-sponsored hackers for compromising at least 500 million accounts in late 2014 (see Massive Yahoo Data Breach Shatters Records).
It also would be the second one to affect Friend Finder Networks in as many years.
It wasn't clear if the company was referring to the local file inclusion flaw.Breach notification site first reported the attack, indicating that over 300 million Adult Friend Finder accounts were affected, as well as over 60 million accounts from Other company holdings, such as Penthouse, Stripshow, and i Cams were also breached, for a total of 412,214,295 affected users."Their [Friend Finder Networks'] infrastructure is two decades old and slightly confusing." Many of the passwords were simply in plaintext, Leaked Source writes in a blog post.Others had been hashed, the process by which a plaintext password is processed by an algorithm to generate a cryptographic representation, which is safer to store.
