Adult friend finder network
Right now, generally the adult sites that have better security are indies outside the mainstream industry, like queer porn sites and sex culture blogs (like mine).Hopefully we don't need to have another OPM-of-adult security tragedy, like the Friend Finder debacle, to see the leading porn sites with the majority of users get up to speed in the fight against hack attacks.first reported the discovery of a serious security issue with FFN then revealed the beginning of this massive database catastrophe.In October, a researcher who went by the names "1x0123" and "Revolver" posted screenshots on Twitter showing what's known as a Local File Inclusion vulnerability on Adult Friend Finder.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.It did not acknowledge the number of records exposed.Although FFN advised users who might be reading its press release to change their passwords, it still hasn't notified its customers directly, and there are no notifications on any of its compromised websites.
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.
The compromised information included sexual preferences and personal details, whether they are gay or straight, and whether they are seeking extramarital affairs, along with email addresses, usernames, dates of birth, postcodes and the unique internet addresses of users' computers.
In that instance, Tek Security had discovered the files on a darknet forum, and noted that AFF hadn't reported the breach.
They wrote about the files saying, "there is a ton of personally identifiable information (PII) sitting in a forum on the Darknet that has been viewed 1,756 times."Driving home the harm to consumers, the post explained, "It is unknown how many times the breached data files have been downloaded.
Though the files were stripped of credit card data, it is still relatively easy to connect the dots and identify thousands upon thousands of users who subscribe to this adult site."Security is one area in which adult and porn sites are far behind, and no matter how you feel about sex work and adult entertainment, they are arenas in which strong security should be a priority for all involved.
