Last year's breach also included users' dates of birth, postal codes, sexual preferences, and whether they were seeking extramarital affairs.According to Leaked Source, reports The Guardian: "'Passwords were stored by Friend Finder Networks either in plain visible format or SHA1 hashed (peppered).Neither method is considered secure by any stretch of the imagination.'" Among the leaked accounts are some FFN should not necessarily have had to lose in the first place.In addition to the 16 million "deleted" accounts is the user database, which FFN had access to, despite having sold in February.That security analyst, known as Revolver, denied any participation in the hack. Hackers can use this collision exploit to their advantage.The truth is, hackers can use collision to forge a digital signature and access a user’s account. In fact, there are free resources online that allow you to decrypt SHA-1 Hash.
One of the biggest data breaches of 2016 was the Adult Friend Finder incident.Friend Finder Networks is an adult dating and pornography site and has been attacked before in the past.The breach released more than 20 years of confidential data and accessed five other branch companies.Although the size of the breach is far greater, the nature of the data is less intimate than the previous FFN breach.This time, email addresses, passwords, dates of last visits, browser information, IP addresses, and site membership status were revealed, reports The Guardian, citing data breach monitoring service Leaked Source.
