What happened to adult friend finder
If confirmed, the breach would be largest known breach of personal data this year.
It is the second time in as many years that Adult Friend Finder has been hacked, following 3.5 million user records being exposed in May 2015.
Data reportedly breached in the latest hack includes email addresses, passwords, IP addresses and site membership status.
If Adult Friend Finder users have the same password for multiple sites and online services, criminals could use it to compromise other accounts.
Clearly, it has the burden of handling an abundant amount of sensitive information and it would only make sense for them to have an excellent security measure to keep intruders out.
Over 99% of account passwords were leaked and large amounts of confidential data such as sexual preferences and marital status were also compromised.
This stolen information has in large part been posted to various places across the internet making the information easily accessible to malicious opportunists and to the general public. This attack is very common and there are straightforward ways to prevent these attacks.
That security analyst, known as Revolver, denied any participation in the hack. Hackers can use this collision exploit to their advantage.
The truth is, hackers can use collision to forge a digital signature and access a user’s account. In fact, there are free resources online that allow you to decrypt SHA-1 Hash.
