Adult friend finder network
Making it worse than a typical security fail is what's in the data.The snatched records contain usernames, email addresses and passwords -- nearly all of which are visible in plain text.This was the second breach for the site in less than two years.In May 2015, Adult Friend Finder was hacked, and the attackers exposed details of nearly four millions users.The records have been found by Leaked Source to contain 15,766,727 million accounts that were supposed to have been deleted.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.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.
They're being sold or shared with anyone who might have an interest in them."That's more users than Twitter and a third of Facebook's global membership.
Everyone involved believed this was just the beginning of a massive data breach.
After their October disclosure got Friend Finder's attention, Revolver tweeted that FFN's security issue was resolved and "no customer information ever left their site" -- which was clearly untrue. Friend Finder Network conceded in a press release that it was "addressing a security incident involving certain customer usernames, passwords and email addresses" on Monday.
More than 900,000 accounts used the password "123456," 101,046 used "password," tens of thousands used words like "pussy" and "fuckme" -- which we suppose is exactly what Friend Finder did to the user by storing their passwords so recklessly.
But wait, there's more embarrassment to be had by all.
