Adult friend finder username adult friend finder data breach

Rated 3.96/5 based on 906 customer reviews

A hack against popular adult dating and entertainment company Friend Finder Networks exposed data related to more than 412 million user accounts, according to a report from breach notification site Leaked Source.Friend Finder Networks did not confirm or deny the breach when reached by The Washington Post.The data gave not only usernames, postal codes and dates of birth, but also an indication of which users were seeking an extra-marital affair.In its response to our story, the company stated that it had “only just been made aware” of the hack.In addition to launching an internal review, Friend Finder Networks has hired Mandiant, a high-profile cybersecurity company, to investigate the hack, and is working with the FBI.Meanwhile, the person who originally dumped the information on the so-called darkweb, who uses the nickname ROR[RG}, is demanding more than £10,000 for access to the database of users, and capitalising on the news by marketing his cybercrime services.

Another possible mechanism could have been hijacking ssh keys from a compromised admin account or github, but those tend to be secondary in most cases.In fact, if Leaked Source is correct, only the massive Yahoo data breach disclosed in September, which hit more than half a billion accounts, exposed more user accounts.Unlike Friend Finder Networks, Yahoo is a mainstream service.Leaked Source said the alleged breach includes nearly 340 million accounts from flagship site Adult Friend Finder, plus data from other sites owned by Friend Finder Network, including Cams.com, as well as records from Penthouse.com, which was sold in February.The cache may also include 15 million email addresses connected to deleted accounts, according to Leaked Source.
