Adult friend finder data free gay dating
Companies need to start putting in measures to stop these passwords being used.We have the lists, they have the lists, it’s a simple lookup.Not only were passwords stored with trivial protection, but accounts that users had deleted, appeared to not have been deleted at all.The impact from sites such as Adult Friend Finder could be as significant as the Ashley Madison breach which had reports of suicides as a direct result of the breaches.Companies need to step up and take control of how they store and manage our data.Yes it’s our job to be responsible but on the same note they should encourage high standards and do more than the required basics to keep it safe.” Lee Munson, Security Researcher for “The Adult Friend Finder hack, like many that have gone before it, and many that will come after, highlights the poor approach to security taken by even the biggest sites on the web.
Some websites already do this but more need to step up and help those people who still do not understand the need for password sense.In this case verification has shown that some data is stored in clear text while passwords are encrypted with SHA-1 (not enough to thwart today’s adversaries).Unfortunately penetration testing or application security scanning can offer almost no insight into how data is stored or processed inside an organisations applications and data stores. It enables organisations to see how their data is managed by systems and more importantly whether it is encrypted and whether that encryption level is satisfactory.” Justine Cross, Regional Director at “The public has long since run out of patience for companies that fail to protect their data, and the Friendfinder Network is just the latest example proving that businesses must take a new stance to keep information in their care safe.Good user account practice should therefore involve use of unique passwords between websites.” Javvad Malik, Security Advocate at “I’m still getting my head around the extent of the Adult Friend Finder hack.
But for all intents and purposes, it looks as if security wasn’t even an afterthought.
With the previous attacks we have seen on these types of websites you would have expected the password storage security to have been increased but sadly this is not the case here.
