Unlike financially motivated hacks, these highly personal data breaches can wreak havoc whose damage cannot be undone with an updated password.
The amount of personal details leaked here (including, among other things, passwords, last login, and email address) can tear families apart, jeopardize jobs and even worse.
The professional nature of many of the email addresses found in the Ashley Madison hack (.gov, .mil, etc.) should have served as a wakeup call for users engaging in this behavior, however with the professional emails contained in this breach seems to show that people are still using work accounts for questionable activity.
“Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation.” Some of the claims were false extortion attempts, Ballou said, but the company “did identify and fix a vulnerability that was related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability.” I’ve reached out to Friend Finder and will update this story if I hear back.
Hackers reportedly breached Friend Finder Networks last month, and gained access to over 300 million accounts on Adult Friend Finder, which markets itself as the “World’s largest sex & swinger community.” The hack also exposed over 62 million accounts on Cams.com, a site for live webcam “sex chat,” over 7 million on Penthouse.com, over 1.4 million on Stripshow.com, over 1.1 million on i and a little over 35,000 on an “unknown domain.” Friend Finder’s network was reportedly hacked through a local file inclusion exploit, which enabled the hackers to access all of the network’s sites.
For now, Leaked Source says it will not make the data set searchable by the general public. For one, the company either stored user passwords in plaintext, without any protection, or hashed them using the notoriously weak SHA1 algorithm, according to Leaked Source.
by the self-styled vigilante group known as the “Impact Team” occurred, one would expect that any organization dealing with such sensitive topics as adultery would have had the intelligence, and foresight, to ensure that their applications and sensitive user data were as secure as possible. Prior to the July 2015 Ashley Madison hack, the Friend Finder Network had an additional wakeup call to their insufficient state of security when over 3 million active users had some personal details leaked.
This data included their sexual preference – something not leaked in this current hack.
According to a reporter it is impossible to register an account using an email that’s formatted this way which means the addition of “@deleted.com” was done behind the scenes by Adult Friend Finder.
