Adult Friend Finder Is The Biggest Site Hack Since Ashley Madison With Millions Compromised

Remember the Ashley Madison site hack that happened last year? It was a rough time for lots of couples in America, as their passwords, email addresses and usernames were all released to the public, where everyone could check and see if their significant others were stupid enough to not create a new email address to register on the site.

But now, the Adult Friend Finder network, king of the clickbait porn ads, finds itself in a similar situation.

412 million user accounts have been hacked. All of their username and passwords have been compromised.

“The world’s largest sex and swinger community” can find itself in heaps of trouble, as the compromised accounts can now lead to hackers gaining access to user’s private data, including stored credit card information and any other sensitive data available in their profile.

339 million of the users were registered with Adult Friend Finder, and the others were associated with other sites under the network, like Penthouse.

The worst part? Some 15 million accounts that were already deleted from the network still somehow got their information stolen.

FriendFinder’s VP and Senior Counsel, Diana Ballou, said that they were able to find and fix a vulnerability in their security and the majority of phone calls and threats were just attempts at extortion:

“Over the past several weeks, FriendFinder has received a number of reports regarding potential security vulnerabilities from a variety of sources. While a number of these claims proved to be false extortion attempts, we did identify and fix a vulnerability that was related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability.” She told ZDNet.

Apparently this is the second time the network’s been hacked, with 3.5 million accounts being compromised last year. This latest hack, however, is one of the biggest in the web’s history. (h/t cnet)
