Like all sectors -- government, retail, finance and healthcare -- the adult and porn businesses are feeling the consequences of not making security a priority, in the worst possible ways. Take for example this week's breach-bloodbath, in which Friend Finder Networks (FFN) lost their Sourcefire code to criminal hackers and put their users in serious risk.
A major data breach to the "sex and swingers" website Adult Friend Finder could trigger a series of follow-on hacks, security researchers have warned.
If Adult Friend Finder users have the same password for multiple sites and online services, criminals could use it to compromise other accounts.Similarly, personal details could be used in phishing campaigns that use such information as bait to trick people into giving up sensitive data."With this breach of 400 million accounts we should expect a domino effect of smaller data breaches with password reuse and spear-phishing," says Ilia Kolochenko, CEO of security firm High-Tech Bridge."General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforcement will probably help to minimize this type of incident in the future, however it will take some time.Users should keep in mind that everything they post or share online may become public one day.Adult dating service company Friend Finder Network has reportedly been hacked, with over 412 million accounts, email addresses, and passwords from their websites made available on criminal marketplaces.
