Adult friend finder exposed
The hack also revealed that the company had kept information on 15 million accounts that users had deleted, as well as information on users for assets it no longer owned, such as Penthouse.
By comparison, the Ashley Madison hack that took place in July 2015 revealed 32 million accounts, although that attack was also accompanied by a more aggressive extortion campaign.
The first clue that Friend Finder Networks might have another problem came in mid-October.
"We didn't split any data ourselves, that's how it came to us," the Leaked Source representative writes.
But the leaked data could encompass many more sites, as Friend Finder Networks runs as many as 40,000 websites, a Leaked Source representative says over instant messaging.
