Adult friend finder web cam england internatinol dating
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.
Some of the claims were actually extortion attempts.
It could also be particularly worrisome because Leaked Source says the accounts date back 20 years, a time in the early commercial web when users were less worried about privacy issues.
The latest Friend Finder Networks' breach would only be rivaled in sensitivity by the breach of Avid Life Media's Ashley Madison extramarital dating site, which exposed 36 million accounts, including customers names, hashed passwords and partial credit card numbers (see Ashley Madison Slammed by Regulators).
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."

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).
The sites breached would appear to include Adult Friend Finder.com, i Cams.com, Cams.com, and Stripshow.com, the last of which redirects to the definitely not-safe-for-work playwithme[.]com, run by Friend Finder subsidiary Steamray.
The person who found that flaw has gone by the nicknames 1x0123 and Revolver on Twitter, which has suspended the accounts.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).The alleged leak is likely to cause panic among users who created accounts on Friend Finder Network properties, which primarily are adult-themed dating/fling websites, and those run by subsidiary Steamray Inc., which specializes in nude model webcam streaming."Their [Friend Finder Networks'] infrastructure is two decades old and slightly confusing." Many of the passwords were simply in plaintext, Leaked Source writes in a blog post.Others had been hashed, the process by which a plaintext password is processed by an algorithm to generate a cryptographic representation, which is safer to store.
The first clue that Friend Finder Networks might have another problem came in mid-October.
