Before you ask: I tested online dating teledildonics well before writing this Adult Friend Finder review.They’re pretty darn interesting if you’re in a long distance relationship. During this review process, I found myself overwhelmed with the options, number of members and profiles seeking casual fun. Look at the fine print (we’ll get to that shortly) and you’ll see Adult Friend Finder can use your data, photos, and information in perpetuity.It didn’t take me long to figure out though, AFF doesn’t purge their databases – a profile I set up over seven years ago to review the site still exists, for instance. Most dating sites have this clause, few use it for so long.So, lots of members, some from ages ago, all vying for your attention, right? If anything, I found I had more success as a non-paying member. By using the 100% free chat rooms, and connecting with people there.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.
“While a number of these claims proved to be false extortion attempts, we did identify and fix a vulnerability that was related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability,” ZDNet quoted from an email by CEO Diana Ballou.
If confirmed, the breach would be largest known breach of personal data this year.
It is the second time in as many years that Adult Friend Finder has been hacked, following 3.5 million user records being exposed in May 2015.
Items such as usernames, email addresses and passwords are stored in plaintext or using SHA-1 encryption, which experts consider insufficient under current best practices.
Solutions such as 2-factor authentication could have easily helped avert a breach of this magnitude.
