The cache may also include 15 million email addresses connected to deleted accounts, according to Leaked Source.The new owners of said they are aware of the alleged breach."[W]e are waiting on Friend Finder to give us a detailed account of the scope of the breach and their remedial actions in regard to our data," Penthouse Global Media chief executive Kelly Holland said in an emailed statement.The previous Friend Finder Network breach came to light in May 2015 and affected 3.5 million accounts.
CSOOnline reveals that information from the breached databases was circulating online since their compromise in October 2016.Items such as usernames, email addresses and passwords are stored in plaintext or using SHA-1 encryption, which experts consider insufficient under current best practices.Solutions such as 2-factor authentication could have easily helped avert a breach of this magnitude.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.We found out this week that "sex and swinger" social network Adult Friend Finder was breached, along with all of its other sites. (FFN) operates Adult Friend Finder.com, webcam sex-work site cams.com, and a few others; a total of six databases were reported in the haul.The hack and dump performed on FFN has exposed 412,214,295 accounts, according to breach notification site Leaked Source, which disclosed the extent of the privacy disaster on Sunday.Passwords were also included in the trove -- the vast majority of them featured unsecured protections or none at all, the report said.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.Leaked Source said "this data set will not be searchable by the general public on our main page temporarily for the time being."But as infosec blog put it, "The point is, these records exist in multiple places online.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.
