But why Friend Finder Networks has held onto millions of accounts belonging to customers is a mystery, given that the site was sold to Penthouse Global Media in February."We are aware of the data hack and we are waiting on Friend Finder to give us a detailed account of the scope of the breach and their remedial actions in regard to our data," said Kelly Holland, the site's chief executive, in an email on Saturday.
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.
Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation," said Diana Ballou, vice president and senior counsel, in an email on Friday."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 said."Friend Finder takes the security of its customer information seriously and will provide further updates as our investigation continues," she added.
When pressed on details, Ballou declined to comment further.
It is the second major leak of private user information in less than two years - and it even contains details of DELETED accounts over the seedy service's 20 year history, Leaked Source has claimed.
The scale of the hack, which was first reported last month, has only now been revealed by stunned data experts who said it is "the largest breach we have ever seen".
We are now happily married for many years now and I'm so blessed to have found someone who will be with me for the rest of my life! Asia Friendfinder is the largest online internet Asian dating and social networking site to meet single Asian women and Asian men across the world.
Joining Asia Friendfinder was the best life changing decision I’ve ever made. We are the first Asian dating web site catering specifically to Asians.
If confirmed, the breach would be largest known breach of personal data this year.
It is the second time in as many years that Adult Friend Finder has been hacked, following 3.5 million user records being exposed in May 2015.
Similarly, personal details could be used in phishing campaigns that use such information as bait to trick people into giving up sensitive data."With this breach of 400 million accounts we should expect a domino effect of smaller data breaches with password reuse and spear-phishing," says Ilia Kolochenko, CEO of security firm High-Tech Bridge."General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforcement will probably help to minimize this type of incident in the future, however it will take some time.
