Adult dating site hacks torrent
But there's no way to change your sexual orientation (so far as we know) or undo the fact that you were seeking an extramarital affair.
(Credit card numbers do not appear to be part of the current data dump, nor do account passwords.) Adult Friend Finder is not a traditional online dating service; it's an entire community of people (mostly men) looking for casual, and often unorthodox, sex.
Three and a half million users of the risqué hookup service fell victim to a vengeful malefactor, who revealed a ton of sensitive data, up to and including users' marital status and sexual orientation.
The data was first reported last month by Oregon-based tech blogger Bev Robb, who blogs under the name Teksquisite, and independently discovered on hidden "dark web" sites and publicized yesterday (May 21) by Britain's Channel 4 News.
The story goes that a Thailand-based hacker named ROR[RG] claimed Adult Friend Finder owed a friend of his almost $250,000 in unpaid fees.
ROR[RG] leaked the data, then threatened to leak more unless Adult Friend Finder coughed up the money, as well as an additional $100,000.
Blackmailing might work, but so would sending a threatening e-mail with a link to phishing malware to steal his credit card.
