Adult Friend Finder users are finding themselves exposed in ways they never dreamed of when they signed up for the online hooking up service.
According to reports, a hacker by the name of ROR[RG] hacked the site and stole all kinds of information about the site’s users.
Everything from email and home addresses, to sexual preferences and whether the user was looking for relationships outside of their marriages have been lifted.
This includes people who thought they deleted their accounts.

Schlechte Nachrichten für User der Sexbörse "Adult Friend Finder": Hacker haben das Erotik-Netzwerk gehackt.This was absolutely not the first hack of Adult Friend Finder.I am personally aware of seven previous hacks and there are rumors of dozens, if not hundreds of prior hacks. The hacks that reach public awareness are extremely rare.Rund 412 Millionen Nutzerkonten seien betroffen, berichtet das Portal "Leaked Source".Es ist der zweite große Angriff auf die Seite - bereits 2015 wurden Nutzerdaten von Hackern veröffentlicht.In other words, they’ll demand money in exchange for not telling the world just how kinky your fetishes are.One interesting piece of information that has come out of this exposure is that the site doesn’t have quite as many female users as the promotional material might lead you to believe.Of the 535 members of congress, only 16 Congressmen and two Senators were members of this adult website. Another 230,000 or so rank and file employees of fortune 500 companies were also members – following in the footsteps of their admired superiors no doubt. Of the 2,400,000 odd employees of the Federal Government, we find a measly 120,000 or so who were members. When I tell you, however, that over 90 percent of all these members accessed the website, perused photographs (mostly naked or semi-naked), sent texts and emails and shared fascinating sexual fantasies with uncountable numbers of people while on the job and while using government or corporate computers, you might raise an eyebrow or two.The above tragically fascinating information comes from a well publicized hack of Adult Friendfinder, accomplished last week by “ROR[RG]”, a hacker living in the beautiful and magical city of Bangkok, Thailand.I am not a top notch hacker, but I did spend most of my life attempting to stop hackers from accessing or damaging data. As part of my job, I had to know how hackers did their jobs and became moderately good at it.It may sound devious or somehow over the line, but would you buy a lock from a lock manufacturer that professed to know nothing about how a lock is picked? Anyway, with my limited talents I could easily have walked into the Friend Finder database and collected the same thing that ROR[RG] collected and, using it for analysis, written my story. Instead I went to ROR[RG]’s area where he had placed the data.
