Adult friend fi der
ALMOST 400 million accounts on sex and swinger site Adult Friend Finder have been allegedly exposed in what is believed to be the biggest security breach of its kind.
The scale of the hack, which was first reported last month, has only now been revealed by stunned data experts who said it is "the largest breach we have ever seen".
In addition to the 16 million "deleted" accounts is the user database, which FFN had access to, despite having sold in February.
Included in the leak were 96 million Hotmail accounts, 78,301 US military email accounts, and 5,650 US government accounts.
In even worse news, information for people no longer on the site was still stolen—details on 15 million accounts that had been deleted were found because they had remained on the company's servers.
Anyone who has signed up on the site in the last 20 years could be at risk, and should take proper measures to change their passwords and contact the company.
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.
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.
Sister porn sites Penthouse, Stripshow and i Cams have also been skimmed of user data in what cyber security specialists have said is a hack that "raises serious alarm bells".
Adult Friend Finder is an adult dating site that provides services to male and female users who seek short-term sexual encounters over the internet.
During the survey period it was found, that five percent of responding singles reported that they were current users.
