Adult friend finder network
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.
Combined with Ashley Madison's many deceits, FFN also contributed to the deepening public mistrust about the very sensitive data exchange between adult companies and their consumers.
They wrote, "It is impossible to register an account using an email that's formatted this way which means the addition of '@deleted.com' was done behind the scenes by Adult Friend Finder."This breach actually happened last month.
Stolen Friend Finder Networks files show that 78,301 accounts used a email address, 5,650 used a email.
reports addresses associated with the British government include seven email addresses, 1,119 from the Ministry of Defence, 12 from Parliament, 54 UK police email addresses, 437 NHS ones and 2,028 from schools.
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.
