Adult dating information site site web

Stolen data from some 3.9 million members of Adult Friend Finder was leaked by hackers, according to an investigation by Britain's Channel 4.

Security researcher Graham Cluley said in a blog post Friday that the website has an obligation to inform its 63 million members worldwide.

"How about posting a warning on your website so your members can look out for phishing emails, or malware which might be sent to them? "What about some advice about the type of threats that users could be exposed to—including, potentially, blackmail—if their membership of the site is uncovered?

Also exposed were email addresses, user names, dates of birth, postal codes and Internet addresses of the users' computers, according to Channel 4.

In a statement on its corporate website, the parent company Friend Finder Networks said it "has just been made aware of a potential data security issue and understands and fully appreciates the seriousness of the issue." "We have already begun working closely with law enforcement and have launched a comprehensive investigation with the help of leading third-party forensics expert." The data breach was first reported a month ago by security researcher Bev Robb who discovered the data on a "dark Web" site.
