But an email trail on that a warning about the leak was sent by a cyber security consultant on 12 March.Around two hours later an employee at Friend Finder Networks then replied with a “read receipt” to say that the warning email had been read.Its corporate headquarters are located in Boca Raton, Florida, with additional offices in California, New York, and Taiwan.The company primarily deals in adult entertainment, online dating, and social networking services.
Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation," said Diana Ballou, vice president and senior counsel, in an email on Friday."While a number of these claims proved to be false extortion attempts, we did identify and fix a vulnerability that was related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability," she said."Friend Finder takes the security of its customer information seriously and will provide further updates as our investigation continues," she added.“I have had so many people ask me to buy the db [database] today,” the hacker wrote on the same forum where the original leak appeared, asking for payment in the anonymised currency Bitcoin.“Or if you need I will break into any company or site for 750 in under seven days,” the writer adds.The website focuses on providing an avenue for its members to find casual hookups, so this might not be the best site to find a romantic relationship or something alike.However, the adult site fell in disgrace over the years for having lots of fake members and data hacking.After discovering that users had been using the service to seek sexual partners, he launched Adult Friend Finder as a spin-off, followed later by other spin-offs dealing with different regions and niches.Much of the company's growth without investment capital has been attributed to its affiliate program, with more than 500,000 affiliates to date.The breach included account data from Adult Friend Finder (which constituted over 339 million accounts), Cams.com, and Penthouse, including accounts that had supposedly been deleted.The passwords were either stored as plain text or encrypted using the obsolete and insecure SHA-1 cipher.As of January 17, 2010, Friend Finder Networks had a negative net worth equal to 8 million, million in cash on hand and 0 million in liabilities.The company had also indicated that it lacked existing cash or cash from operations to repay a .5 million debt that was due July 31.
