Most members aim at remaining anonymous due to the private nature of the information shared; however, for many this anonymity has been lost following the breach.Email addresses and in some cases usernames, gender, birth date, state of residence, postal code, language preference, other personal details and IP addresses were leaked and quickly posted on the Dark Web.Shortly thereafter, Friend Finder Network's vice president, and senior counsel of corporate compliance & litigation, Diana Lynn Ballou provided with a statement: "We are aware of reports of a security incident, and we are currently investigating to determine the validity of the reports." This isn’t the first time Adult Friend Finder has run into trouble: in May 2015, 3.5 million user accounts were exposed in another hack., which obtained a portion of the database and confirmed its legitimacy, the leaked information "does not appear to contain sexual preference data, unlike the 2015 breach." However, the site was able to see account usernames, emails, passwords, the last login, IP addresses, browser information, and other information.
Online dating holds a plethora of privacy concerns.
Major dating sites have been compromised in the past and will be increasingly targeted moving forward.
These sites also include an abundance of basic personal information, romantic information and financial information.
Other company holdings, such as Penthouse, Stripshow, and i Cams were also breached, for a total of 412,214,295 affected users.
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.
Already, leaked email addresses have been tied to users’ Facebook pages — exposing their true identities.
