Adult friend finder number
The breach included 300 million Adult Friend Finder user accounts, including account data for 15 million accounts that had supposedly been "deleted".The passwords had not been encrypted at all, or encrypted with the obsolete and insecure SHA-1.“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.“Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation.” Some of the claims were false extortion attempts, Ballou said, but the company “did identify and fix a vulnerability that was related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability.” I’ve reached out to Friend Finder and will update this story if I hear back.Hackers reportedly breached Friend Finder Networks last month, and gained access to over 300 million accounts on Adult Friend Finder, which markets itself as the “World’s largest sex & swinger community.” The hack also exposed over 62 million accounts on Cams.com, a site for live webcam “sex chat,” over 7 million on Penthouse.com, over 1.4 million on Stripshow.com, over 1.1 million on i and a little over 35,000 on an “unknown domain.” Friend Finder’s network was reportedly hacked through a local file inclusion exploit, which enabled the hackers to access all of the network’s sites.For now, Leaked Source says it will not make the data set searchable by the general public. For one, the company either stored user passwords in plaintext, without any protection, or hashed them using the notoriously weak SHA1 algorithm, according to Leaked Source.
On November 13, 2016, it was reported that a database of usernames, e-mails, and passwords had been breached and leaked from Adult Friend Finder and other Friend Finder Networks websites.
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.
As we discovered by files exposed in the Ashley Madison breach, Friend Finder wasn't removing profiles that users believed to have been closed or removed.
Leaked Source said "this data set will not be searchable by the general public on our main page temporarily for the time being."But as infosec blog put it, "The point is, these records exist in multiple places online.
They're being sold or shared with anyone who might have an interest in them."That's more users than Twitter and a third of Facebook's global membership.
According to the complaints filed, the company has a practice of continuing to bill customers even after they have cancelled their service.
