Shaun Harper is one of those whose details have been published.“The site seemed OK, but when I got into it I realised it wasn’t really for me, I was looking for something longer term. You couldn’t get into the site without handing over information.That data is incredibly revealing and potentially damaging.Andrew Auernheimer, a controversial computer hacker who looked through the files, used Twitter to publicly identify Adult Friend Finder customers, including a Washington police academy commander, an FAA employee, a California state tax worker and a naval intelligence officer who supposedly tried to cheat on his wife.“I deleted my account, so I thought the information had gone.These sites are meant to be secure.” Within hours of the data being leaked, hackers on the forum said they intended to hit victims with spam emails, and Mr Harper has been targeted with virused emails since his information was made public.In addition, the hackers have revealed email addresses, usernames, dates of birth, postal codes and unique internet addresses of users’ computers.
The spreadsheets contain addresses linked to dozens of government and armed services personnel, including members of the British Army.
