FriendFinder Networks hacked; more than 412 million accounts leaked
In a hack first reported by breach notification site LeakedSource, adult dating service company Friend Finder Network has been hacked. As a result of the hack, more than 412 million accounts have been leaked.
Friend Finder Network is the parent company of AdultFriendFinder, Cams.com, Penthouse.com, Stripshow.com, and iCams.com.
According to the LeakedSource report, FriendFinder Networks was attacked by hackers in October; and over 412 million accounts, e-mail addresses and passwords from the company's holdings were leaked online on criminal marketplaces.
More specifically, hackers compromised and exposed more than 300 million accounts on AdultFriendFinder; more than 62 million accounts on Cams.com; over 7 million accounts on Penthouse.com; more than 1.4 million accounts on Stripshow.com; and over 1.1 million accounts on iCams.com. In addition, the hackers also breached approximately 35,000 accounts on an "unknown domain."
In reporting that Friend Finder Network was attacked by hackers last month, LeakedSource has also highlighted the fact that user passwords were stored by the company in plane visible format -- or with Secure Hash algorithm 1 (SHA-1) -- which is supposedly not a very secure format.
