Adult friend finder exposed adult friend sites
Adult dating service company Friend Finder Network has reportedly been hacked, with over 412 million accounts, email addresses, and passwords from their websites made available on criminal marketplaces.
Friend Finder Networks, stung last year when its Adult Friend Finder website was breached, could not be immediately reached for reaction (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).The sites breached would appear to include Adult Friend Finder.com, i Cams.com, Cams.com, and Stripshow.com, the last of which redirects to the definitely not-safe-for-work playwithme[.]com, run by Friend Finder subsidiary Steamray.Leaked Source provided samples of data to journalists where those sites were mentioned.The hack also revealed that the company had kept information on 15 million accounts that users had deleted, as well as information on users for assets it no longer owned, such as Penthouse.By comparison, the Ashley Madison hack that took place in July 2015 revealed 32 million accounts, although that attack was also accompanied by a more aggressive extortion campaign.
It also has a slight benefit, as Leaked Source writes that "the credentials will be slightly less useful for malicious hackers to abuse in the real world." For a subscription fee, Leaked Source allows its customers to search through data sets it has collected. "We don't want to comment directly about it, but we weren't able to reach a final decision yet on the subject matter," the Leaked Source representative says.
