This site is operated by a business or businesses owned by Informa PLC and all copyright resides with them. Eighteen months after 4 million of its users' accounts were exposed, adult dating and pornography company Friend Finder Networks (FFN) has been hit by another doxing attack -- this one a hundred times larger.Informa PLC's registered office is 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG. Over 412 million accounts -- including 16 million "deleted" accounts -- were leaked from FFN sites, including Adult Friend Finder.com, Penthouse.com, Stripshow.com, Cams.com, and i It was just a matter of time, until a huge security breach happened.One of the biggest data breaches of 2016 was the Adult Friend Finder incident.Neither method is considered secure by any stretch of the imagination.'" Among the leaked accounts are some FFN should not necessarily have had to lose in the first place.In addition to the 16 million "deleted" accounts is the user database, which FFN had access to, despite having sold in February.
The breach released more than 20 years of confidential data and accessed five other branch companies.The information that was stolen in the security breach is primarily user accounts.Out of the 412 million accounts compromised, 78 thousand accounts used military e-mails and 5.6 thousand US Government email addresses were also discovered.A security researcher known as Revolver claimed to find a flaw in Friend Finder Networks’ security in October, posting the information to a now-suspended Twitter account and threatening to 'leak everything' should the company call the flaw report a hoax." "This is criminal negligence, as it's not the first time," says Stu Sjouerman, CEO of security awareness training company Know Be4, in a statement."Adult Friend Finder has failed to learn from their mistakes and now 412 million people are high-value targets for blackmail, phishing attacks, and other cybercrime.
