Delete adult friend finder
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."Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation," the statement said.The Adult Friend Finder data stretched back 20 years and included information such as usernames, emails, join dates and the date of a user’s last visit, according to Leaked Source.Friend Finder Networks did not confirm or deny the breach when reached by The Washington Post.But the company said in a statement that it had “received a number of reports regarding potential security vulnerabilities from a variety of sources” and that it is investigating.
A hack against popular adult dating and entertainment company Friend Finder Networks exposed data related to more than 412 million user accounts, according to a report from breach notification site Leaked Source.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.Friend Finder Networks, the parent company behind the likes of Adult Friend Finder, Cams, Penthouse, i Cams and Stripshow has been hacked, with six databases from the company compromised, according to breach notification website Leaked Source.A Local File Inclusion (LFI) exploit was all it took for server breaches that led to a mammoth 412,214,295 user-accounts’ credentials to leak online.Both that hack and others in the adult industry, such as the 2015 Ashley Madison breach that exposed data from about 36 million users, pale in comparison to the scale of the latest alleged Friend Finder Networks data dump.In fact, if Leaked Source is correct, only the massive Yahoo data breach disclosed in September, which hit more than half a billion accounts, exposed more user accounts.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.The incident itself is likely to have occurred before October 20, 2016 with the last login timestamps for user accounts occur on October 17.As the publication reports, one researcher identified the LFI flaw and warned Adult Friend Finder about the vulnerability.
