Adult friend finder customer service
It could also be particularly worrisome because Leaked Source says the accounts date back 20 years, a time in the early commercial web when users were less worried about privacy issues.
The latest Friend Finder Networks' breach would only be rivaled in sensitivity by the breach of Avid Life Media's Ashley Madison extramarital dating site, which exposed 36 million accounts, including customers names, hashed passwords and partial credit card numbers (see Ashley Madison Slammed by Regulators).
He "will become anybody's slave" and lied about his age on the site, claiming to be 29.
The breach was carried out by a hacker who goes by the moniker ROR[RG].
In an online hacker forum, he said he blackmailed Adult Friend Finder, telling the site he would expose the data online unless the company paid him 0,000.
On the forum, hackers immediately praised ROR[RG], saying they were planning on using the data to attack the victims.
When signing up for an account, customers must enter their gender, which gender they're interested in hooking up with and what kind of sexual situations they desire.
That could allow anyone to extort Adult Friend Finder customers.For instance, the security consultant Robb reported that one person whose information was hacked was a 62-year-old Hispanic male from New Jersey, who worked in advertising and has a preference for the "subporno" forum.That, combined with his username and other account details, gave Robb enough information to Google him, find his real name, and find his social media pages.Notably, the database does not include more detailed personal information, but could still be used to confirm whether a person was a user of the service.
