Adult Friend Finder's acquisition by Penthouse was the subject of a 2007 lawsuit by Broadstream Capital Partners, a merchant bank that assists with mergers, alleging Penthouse breached a 2006 contract by purchasing the company without obtaining Broadstream's consent, a claim Penthouse denies.On November 13, 2016, it was reported that a database of usernames, e-mails, and passwords had been breached and leaked from Adult Friend Finder and other Friend Finder Networks websites.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.

The hack and dump performed on FFN has exposed 412,214,295 accounts, according to breach notification site Leaked Source, which disclosed the extent of the privacy disaster on Sunday.
