Adult friend finder mobile free xxx dating sites
The company also kept logins for a site they don’t even run anymore (Friend Finder sold to Penthouse Global Media in February).
Friend Finder also retained email and passwords for over 15 million people who had deleted their accounts.
What's often not highlighted in these cases is the monetary value of such a breach.
Many would argue that having an email address and the associated data might be of little value.
Unlike financially motivated hacks, these highly personal data breaches can wreak havoc whose damage cannot be undone with an updated password.
The amount of personal details leaked here (including, among other things, passwords, last login, and email address) can tear families apart, jeopardize jobs and even worse.
The suggestion of a security flaw first came from self-styled "underground researcher" 1x0123 on Tuesday night, who posted on Twitter a screen grab that suggested Adult Friend Finder has a Local File Inclusion (LFI) vulnerability.
Our sister site, IT PRO, has contacted Friend Finder Networks for a response to 1x0123's allegations, but has not received a response at the time of publication.
Organizations like Adult Friend Finder should gain the necessary endpoint and network visibility needed to protect their customers’ personal data and “hook up” with a company like Ziften.
Hook-up and dating site Adult Friend Finder has a serious database vulnerability that could reveal usernames, passwords and other information, it has been claimed.
The scenario is highly reminiscent of the Ashley Madison hack last year.
During that data breach, the details of around 37 million users worldwide were compromised, with a number of people's usernames, login details and other credentials were posted online in protest at parent company Avid Life Media's account deletion process, which people paid for but failed to deliver on its promises.
