Adult friend finder leak free dating sites pittsburgh
"It’s clear the company has majorly flawed security postures, and given the sensitivity of the data the company holds this cannot be tolerated.
A group that collects stolen data claims to have obtained 412 million accounts belonging to Friend Finder Networks, the California-based company that runs thousands of adult-themed sites in what it described as a "thriving sex community."

In total nearly 340 million users accounts on "the world's largest sex and swinger community" are said to have been exposed.
Meanwhile, webcam sex site has seen the details of over 62 million accounts released, with similar sites and i each having over a million accounts breached.
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.
In May 2015 it was revealed that 3.9 million Adult Friend Finder accounts had been stolen by a hacker nicknamed ROR[RG] (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).
At the time, FFN Vice President Diana Lunn Ballou released a statement saying: "We are aware of reports of a security incident, and we are currently investigating to determine the validity of the reports." In May last year 3.5 million Adult Friend Finder accounts were exposed in another hack.
Peter Martin, Managing Director at IT security firm Reliance ACSN said: "This breach on Adult Friend Finder is the second in as many years which raises serious alarm bells.
The person who found that flaw has gone by the nicknames 1x0123 and Revolver on Twitter, which has suspended the accounts.
CSOonline reported that the person posted a redacted image of a server and a database schema generated on Sept. In a statement supplied to ZDNet, Friend Finder Networks confirmed that it had received reports of potential security problems and undertook a review.
Friend Finder Networks, stung last year when its Adult Friend Finder website was breached, could not be immediately reached for reaction (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).
