Adult friend finder news
Both that hack and others in the adult industry, such as the 2015 Ashley Madison breach that exposed data about 36 million users, pale in comparison to the scale of the latest alleged Friend Finder Networks data dump.
In fact, if Leaked Source is correct only the massive Yahoo data breach disclosed in September, which hit over half a billion accounts, exposed more user accounts.
Friend Finder Networks did not confirm or deny the breach when reached by The Washington Post.
But the company said in a statement that it had “received a number of reports regarding potential security vulnerabilities from a variety of sources” and was investigating.
Last year's breach also included users' dates of birth, postal codes, sexual preferences, and whether they were seeking extramarital affairs.
Leaked Source said the alleged breach includes nearly 340 million accounts from flagship site Adult Friend Finder, plus data from other sites owned by Friend Finder Network, including Cams.com, as well as records from Penthouse.com, which was sold in February.
The data was stolen last month using a vulnerability exposed around the same time, Leaked Source reported.
The previous Friend Finder Network breach came to light in May 2015 and affected 3.5 million accounts.

Unlike Friend Finder Networks, Yahoo is a mainstream service.
