Heads Up Swingers, You Are Likely Exposed – AdultFriendFinder.com Hacked
Last year it was Ashley Madison that exposed the accounts of millions of users. This time it's Adult Friend Finder and it's a massive hack, 412 million users to be exact.
The adult dating and hookup website, AdultFriendFinder (and it's other adult websites, including Penthouse) were hacked in the last 30 days, and it includes the email addresses and passwords of accounts over the last 20 years according to LeakedSource, who published details on the breach yesterday.
It's unknown how many of these accounts belong to citizens of Minnesota, the number of users is likely to be fairly high considering over 400 million accounts were exposed. We're not known as a big "swinger" state, but you don't need to be in that category to sign up for an account on any of their websites.
LeakedSource.com is a website that exposes accounts of users that have had their accounts hacked. Yes, they gladly take the data that's extracted by hacked websites and posts user information online for all to see. Fortunately for this hack, they've decided not to post user account information at this time, for whatever reason.
After much internal deliberation by the LeakedSource team and for various reasons, we have decided that this data set will not be searchable by the general public on our main page temporarily for the time being*.
You may remember last year the popular cheating website for married men, Ashley Madison, was hacked and exposed millions of user accounts. Not something a married user obviously was very happy about. FriendFinder, the company who owns the AdultFriendFinder and Penthouse website brands, said they have fixed the breach and no longer poses a threat to their user accounts.
In May of 2015, the website was also hacked and exposed the accounts of 3.5 million users.
