Adult friend finder username
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.
Friend Finder Networks did not confirm or deny the breach when reached by The Washington Post.
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.
Unlike Friend Finder Networks, Yahoo is a mainstream service.
But an email trail on that a warning about the leak was sent by a cyber security consultant on 12 March.
Around two hours later an employee at Friend Finder Networks then replied with a “read receipt” to say that the warning email had been read.
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 addition to launching an internal review, Friend Finder Networks has hired Mandiant, a high-profile cybersecurity company, to investigate the hack, and is working with the FBI.
