The source IP addresses collected can even provide pinpoint street locations for attacks.The attack methodology deployed in this instance was not released, but it would be fair to assume that it leveraged a kind of SQL Injection attack or similar, where the information is wormed out of the back-end database through a flaw in the webserver.What's often not highlighted in these cases is the monetary value of such a breach.
Friend Finder Networks (formerly Various, Inc.) is an American internet company founded in 1996 by Andrew Conru.Part of me kept nagging that Google does the same thing with nearly everyone on earth a billion times a day – stealing our personal data — but such reasoning is the first act of making a criminal. I can only assume that this would be classified as pre-theft and, according to Federal and State statutes, pre-theft was not yet a crime.I simply asked my good friend – Andrew Aurnheimer – @rabite on Twitter (he demanded I include his name and handle). It may sound devious or somehow over the line, but would you buy a lock from a lock manufacturer that professed to know nothing about how a lock is picked? Anyway, with my limited talents I could easily have walked into the Friend Finder database and collected the same thing that ROR[RG] collected and, using it for analysis, written my story. Instead I went to ROR[RG]’s area where he had placed the data.As usual, being a day late and a dollar short, by the time I knocked on the door he was selling incomplete segments of the database for non-exclusive use for ,000.
