In May 2015, Adult Friend Finder was hacked, and the attackers exposed details of nearly four millions users.
The compromised information included sexual preferences and personal details, whether they are gay or straight, and whether they are seeking extramarital affairs, along with email addresses, usernames, dates of birth, postcodes and the unique internet addresses of users' computers.
But wait, there's more embarrassment to be had by all.
Stolen Friend Finder Networks files show that 78,301 accounts used a email address, 5,650 used a email.
Like all sectors -- government, retail, finance and healthcare -- the adult and porn businesses are feeling the consequences of not making security a priority, in the worst possible ways. Take for example this week's breach-bloodbath, in which Friend Finder Networks (FFN) lost their Sourcefire code to criminal hackers and put their users in serious risk.reports addresses associated with the British government include seven email addresses, 1,119 from the Ministry of Defence, 12 from Parliament, 54 UK police email addresses, 437 NHS ones and 2,028 from schools.Suffice to say, federal employees are in the category of pervs who need to make sure they aren't reusing any of those bad passwords on other accounts.After their October disclosure got Friend Finder's attention, Revolver tweeted that FFN's security issue was resolved and "no customer information ever left their site" -- which was clearly untrue. Friend Finder Network conceded in a press release that it was "addressing a security incident involving certain customer usernames, passwords and email addresses" on Monday.It did not acknowledge the number of records exposed.If you have an account on Adult Friend Finder, Cams.com, Penthouse, Stripshow and/or i — and reused it on other sites — you should probably change your password.Friend Finder Networks, the parent company of those sites, has reportedly been hacked, resulting in the leak of of over 412 million accounts, according to Leaked Source (h/t to CSO).Although FFN advised users who might be reading its press release to change their passwords, it still hasn't notified its customers directly, and there are no notifications on any of its compromised websites.This was the second breach for the site in less than two years.Friend Finder also retained email and passwords for over 15 million people who had deleted their accounts.“Over the past several weeks, Friend Finder has received a number of reports regarding potential security vulnerabilities from a variety of sources,” Friend Finder Networks Vice President and Senior Counsel Diana Ballou told ZDNet.
