Delete adult friend finder is zoosk a free dating site
Like all sectors -- government, retail, finance and healthcare -- the adult and porn businesses are feeling the consequences of not making security a priority, in the worst possible ways. Take for example this week's breach-bloodbath, in which Friend Finder Networks (FFN) lost their Sourcefire code to criminal hackers and put their users in serious risk.Combined with Ashley Madison's many deceits, FFN also contributed to the deepening public mistrust about the very sensitive data exchange between adult companies and their consumers.Alarmingly, 99% of all available passwords gathered from the breach, are visible in plaintext.CSOOnline reveals that information from the breached databases was circulating online since their compromise in October 2016.
In fact, if Leaked Source is correct, only the massive Yahoo data breach disclosed in September, which hit more than half a billion accounts, exposed more user accounts.
Items such as usernames, email addresses and passwords are stored in plaintext or using SHA-1 encryption, which experts consider insufficient under current best practices.
Solutions such as 2-factor authentication could have easily helped avert a breach of this magnitude.
Leaked Source said "this data set will not be searchable by the general public on our main page temporarily for the time being."But as infosec blog put it, "The point is, these records exist in multiple places online.
They're being sold or shared with anyone who might have an interest in them."That's more users than Twitter and a third of Facebook's global membership.
Friend Finder Networks did not confirm or deny the breach when reached by The Washington Post.
