Adult finder dating
(For reference, there were an estimated 50 million Tinder users in late 2014.) But 3.9 million users' accounts have allegedly been leaked online, and are circulating in spreadsheets on forums.
Together, these pieces of information put together a comprehensive (and potentially highly compromising) picture of the victims' lives.
Channel 4 News analysed the data and found that almost no women actually use the adult social network."Among the 26,939 users with a UK email address," technology producer Geoff White writes, "there are just 1,596 who identified as female: a ratio of one woman to every 16 men."In a statement, parent company Friend Finder Networks Inc said that it "understands and fully appreciates the seriousness of the issue.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.It's not yet clear how the data was leaked — we've reached out to Adult Friend Finder and will update this story when they respond — but it opens the door to spam and blackmailing.
