Adult friend finder hack database filipina dating sites free
The scale of the hack, which was first reported last month, has only now been revealed by stunned data experts who said it is "the largest breach we have ever seen".It is the second major leak of private user information in less than two years - and it even contains details of DELETED accounts over the seedy service's 20 year history, Leaked Source has claimed.The hack and dump performed on FFN has exposed 412,214,295 accounts, according to breach notification site Leaked Source, which disclosed the extent of the privacy disaster on Sunday.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.Similarly, personal details could be used in phishing campaigns that use such information as bait to trick people into giving up sensitive data."With this breach of 400 million accounts we should expect a domino effect of smaller data breaches with password reuse and spear-phishing," says Ilia Kolochenko, CEO of security firm High-Tech Bridge."General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforcement will probably help to minimize this type of incident in the future, however it will take some time.Users should keep in mind that everything they post or share online may become public one day.The scale of the supposed breach is far greater than the 2015 hack of cheating site Ashley Madison, which saw 35 million members publicly exposed.
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.
Peter Martin, Managing Director at IT security firm Reliance ACSN said: "This breach on Adult Friend Finder is the second in as many years which raises serious alarm bells.
"It’s clear the company has majorly flawed security postures, and given the sensitivity of the data the company holds this cannot be tolerated.
A major data breach to the "sex and swingers" website Adult Friend Finder could trigger a series of follow-on hacks, security researchers have warned.
Up to 412 million accounts have been compromised, according to monitoring firm Leaked Source, exposing the personal details of the site's users.
