Its corporate headquarters are located in Boca Raton, Florida, with additional offices in California, New York, and Taiwan.
That, combined with his username and other account details, gave Robb enough information to Google him, find his real name, and find his social media pages.Included in the exposed personal information are customers' email addresses, usernames, passwords, birthdays and zip codes, in addition to their sexual preferences.No credit card data has yet been uncovered as part of the hack.When signing up for an account, customers must enter their gender, which gender they're interested in hooking up with and what kind of sexual situations they desire.Suggestions Adult Friendfinder provides for the "tell others about yourself" field include, "I like my partners to tell me what to do in the bedroom," "I tend to be kinky" and "I'm willing to try some light bondage or blindfolds." The hack, which took place in March, was first uncovered by independent IT security consultant Bev Robb on her blog Teksecurity a month ago. It wasn't until this week, when England's Channel 4 News reported on the hack, that Adult Friend Finder was named as the victim.Reached by phone, a company representative noted that they could not disclose information about the breach, but that they would be in touch. Friend Finder Networks (formerly Various, Inc.) is an American internet company founded in 1996 by Andrew Conru.The breach included account data from Adult Friend Finder (which constituted over 339 million accounts), Cams.com, and Penthouse, including accounts that had supposedly been deleted.The passwords were either stored as plain text or encrypted using the obsolete and insecure SHA-1 cipher.According toa security researcher going by the name Revolver uncovered Local File Inclusion vulnerabilities on the site in October.Shortly thereafter, Friend Finder Network's vice president, and senior counsel of corporate compliance & litigation, Diana Lynn Ballou provided with a statement: "We are aware of reports of a security incident, and we are currently investigating to determine the validity of the reports." This isn’t the first time Adult Friend Finder has run into trouble: in May 2015, 3.5 million user accounts were exposed in another hack.
