Adult friend finder username adult dating list
The company said the warning ended up in its spam folder, despite an email from an employee indicating that it had been read.
On 21 May Channel 4 News revealed that hackers had posted the deeply personal sexual information of around 3.9m users of Adult Friend Finder, which is one of the world’s largest dating websites.
The data gave not only usernames, postal codes and dates of birth, but also an indication of which users were seeking an extra-marital affair.
In its response to our story, the company stated that it had “only just been made aware” of the hack.
The previous Friend Finder Network breach came to light in May 2015 and affected 3.5 million accounts.
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.
Unlike Friend Finder Networks, Yahoo is a mainstream service.Many would argue that having an email address and the associated data might be of little value.However, much the same way metadata collection provides insight to the NSA, this type of information provides attackers with plenty of leverage that can be used against the public.The leaked information included credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, birth dates, physical addresses and personal — you know — preferences.What's often not highlighted in these cases is the monetary value of such a breach.
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.
