Adult friend finder dating site
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.Holland confirmed that the site "does not collect data regarding our members' sexual preferences."Leaked Source said breaking with usual tradition because of the kind of breach, it will not make the data searchable.Friend Finder Networks (formerly Various, Inc.) is an American internet company founded in 1996 by Andrew Conru.It has cautioned that, unless it can repay or restructure its obligation, it will face “a material deficiency in our short term liquidity.” With these shortfalls in mind, the company again announced an intention to make an initial public offering of stock, representing a 49% stake in the company, with plans to use the proceeds to pay down its debt and become listed on the New York Stock Exchange.The contemplated public offering, scheduled to reach the market on January 27, 2010 was delayed by FFN.When pressed on details, Ballou declined to comment further.
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.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.Meanwhile, the person who originally dumped the information on the so-called darkweb, who uses the nickname ROR[RG}, is demanding more than £10,000 for access to the database of users, and capitalising on the news by marketing his cybercrime services.The website focuses on providing an avenue for its members to find casual hookups, so this might not be the best site to find a romantic relationship or something alike.However, the adult site fell in disgrace over the years for having lots of fake members and data hacking.
“I have had so many people ask me to buy the db [database] today,” the hacker wrote on the same forum where the original leak appeared, asking for payment in the anonymised currency Bitcoin.
