Adult friend finder stories
The parent company of Adult Friend Finder is Friend Finder Networks.
Friend Finder Networks is an adult dating and pornography site and has been attacked before in the past.
Alejandro Gutierrez filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all other similarly situated individuals on Aug.
He is represented by Julian Hammond, Polina Brandler and Ari Cherniak of Hammond Law PC in Baltimore, Maryland and Laura L.
The breach released more than 20 years of confidential data and accessed five other branch companies.
The Adult Friend Finder and other sister companies are a huge target for hackers.
One security analyst had previously warned the company of a local file inclusion flaw, and following that warning the hackers were able to run malicious software. A collision occurs when two different message inputs, or passwords, generate the same hash.
That security analyst, known as Revolver, denied any participation in the hack. Hackers can use this collision exploit to their advantage.
More than ever, people are turning to online dating as their sole source of companionship, feeding their personal information to the websites.
