They wrote about the files saying, "there is a ton of personally identifiable information (PII) sitting in a forum on the Darknet that has been viewed 1,756 times."Driving home the harm to consumers, the post explained, "It is unknown how many times the breached data files have been downloaded.Though the files were stripped of credit card data, it is still relatively easy to connect the dots and identify thousands upon thousands of users who subscribe to this adult site."Security is one area in which adult and porn sites are far behind, and no matter how you feel about sex work and adult entertainment, they are arenas in which strong security should be a priority for all involved.
Although FFN advised users who might be reading its press release to change their passwords, it still hasn't notified its customers directly, and there are no notifications on any of its compromised websites.
The records have been found by Leaked Source to contain 15,766,727 million accounts that were supposed to have been deleted.
They wrote, "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."This breach actually happened last month.
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.
