A hack against popular adult dating and entertainment company Friend Finder Networks exposed data related to more than 412 million user accounts, according to a report from breach notification site Leaked Source.If the report is correct, that would make the breach one of the largest on record in terms of the number of accounts affected.Leaked Source has not made the database searchable but has published a breakdown of password frequencies and samples of file schemas from the leaked database to substantiate its claims, which remain unconfirmed but are nonetheless being taken seriously by security firms.
“Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation.” the statement said.
The cache may also include 15 million email addresses connected to deleted accounts, according to Leaked Source.
The data was stolen last month using a vulnerability exposed around the same time, Leaked Source reported.
Leaked Source said the alleged breach includes nearly 340 million accounts from flagship site Adult Friend Finder, plus data from other sites owned by Friend Finder Network, including Cams.com, as well as records from Penthouse.com, which was sold in February.
The new owners of Penthouse.com, Penthouse Global Media, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
