When reached, Friend Finder Networks confirmed the site vulnerability, but would not outright confirm the breach."Over the past several weeks, Friend Finder has received a number of reports regarding potential security vulnerabilities from a variety of sources.
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.

More than 300 million accounts on Adult Friend Finder were hacked compared to 32 million compromised accounts in the 2015 Ashley Madison hack.
