Adult friend finder username
Holland confirmed that the site "does not collect data regarding our members' sexual preferences."Leaked Source said breaking with usual tradition because of the kind of breach, it will not make the data searchable.Adult Friend Finder, an online “dating service” and its affiliates were hacked in April.But an email trail on that a warning about the leak was sent by a cyber security consultant on 12 March.Around two hours later an employee at Friend Finder Networks then replied with a “read receipt” to say that the warning email had been read.Leaked Source said the alleged breach includes nearly 340 million accounts from flagship site Adult Friend Finder, plus data from other sites owned by Friend Finder Network, including Cams.com, as well as records from Penthouse.com, which was sold in February.The cache may also include 15 million email addresses connected to deleted accounts, according to Leaked Source.In addition to launching an internal review, Friend Finder Networks has hired Mandiant, a high-profile cybersecurity company, to investigate the hack, and is working with the FBI.Meanwhile, the person who originally dumped the information on the so-called darkweb, who uses the nickname ROR[RG}, is demanding more than £10,000 for access to the database of users, and capitalising on the news by marketing his cybercrime services.
The source IP addresses collected can even provide pinpoint street locations for attacks.In fact, if Leaked Source is correct, only the massive Yahoo data breach disclosed in September, which hit more than half a billion accounts, exposed more user accounts.Unlike Friend Finder Networks, Yahoo is a mainstream service.When reached, Friend Finder Networks confirmed the site vulnerability, but would not outright confirm the breach."Over the past several weeks, Friend Finder has received a number of reports regarding potential security vulnerabilities from a variety of sources.Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation," said Diana Ballou, vice president and senior counsel, in an email on Friday."While a number of these claims proved to be false extortion attempts, we did identify and fix a vulnerability that was related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability," she said."Friend Finder takes the security of its customer information seriously and will provide further updates as our investigation continues," she added.Many would argue that having an email address and the associated data might be of little value.However, much the same way metadata collection provides insight to the NSA, this type of information provides attackers with plenty of leverage that can be used against the public.The online dating company would not comment on the read receipt, but said its “leadership” only became aware of the breach on 20 May when contacted by Channel 4 News.“Friend Finder employees receive hundreds of sales and marketing spam messages daily, including many from third party cyber security consultants, and any earlier communication on this specific issue was directed to junk mail folders and not considered a legitimate email,” the company said in a statement.The previous Friend Finder Network breach came to light in May 2015 and affected 3.5 million accounts.Both that hack and others in the adult industry, such as the 2015 Ashley Madison breach that exposed data from about 36 million users, pale in comparison to the scale of the latest alleged Friend Finder Networks data dump.
