Adult friend finder customer service
A group that collects stolen data claims to have obtained 412 million accounts belonging to Friend Finder Networks, the California-based company that runs thousands of adult-themed sites in what it described as a "thriving sex community."

Friend Finder Networks, stung last year when its Adult Friend Finder website was breached, could not be immediately reached for reaction (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).
Notably, the database does not include more detailed personal information, but could still be used to confirm whether a person was a user of the service.
The breach was carried out by a hacker who goes by the moniker ROR[RG].
It could also be particularly worrisome because Leaked Source says the accounts date back 20 years, a time in the early commercial web when users were less worried about privacy issues.
The latest Friend Finder Networks' breach would only be rivaled in sensitivity by the breach of Avid Life Media's Ashley Madison extramarital dating site, which exposed 36 million accounts, including customers names, hashed passwords and partial credit card numbers (see Ashley Madison Slammed by Regulators).
Friend Finders Network did disclose to that it had been aware of vulnerabilities and had taken steps to correct it.
Reached by phone, a company representative noted that they could not disclose information about the breach, but that they would be in touch.
