Channel 4 News said it found a database of 3.9 million of Adult Friend Finder.com’s members in an online forum for hackers, including users’ sexual preferences, e-mail addresses, dates of birth and, in some cases, whether they were looking to cheat on their spouses.
The company told Channel 4 that it “understands and fully appreciates the seriousness of the issue.” “We have already begun working closely with law enforcement and have launched a comprehensive investigation with the help of a leading third-party forensics expert,” the company said, according to the network.
“We pledge to take the appropriate steps needed to protect our customers if they are affected.” Unlike many recent data breaches, which have exposed passwords, e-mail addresses or credit card numbers, this hack is deeply personal.
Ashley Madison.com, an American most prominent dating website, that helps married people cheat on their spouses has been hacked, potentially putting very private details of Millions of its users at risk of being exposed.
The group apparently raises an objection to the website’s morally dubious business model and were threatening the company to release all its customer records if the Ashley Madison and Established Men are not completely shut down.
The Impact Team claims to have complete access to not only personal account information of the company’s customers, but also their secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, names, residential addresses, employee documents and emails.
"Full Delete netted [Avid Life Media] .7mm in revenue in 2014.
It’s also a complete lie," the group wrote in a statement released Sunday.
"Users almost always pay with the credit card; their purchase details are not removed as promised and include real name and address, which is, of course, the most important information the users want to be removed." Avid Life Media is working with law enforcement agencies to investigate this criminal act and also using Digital Millennium Copyright Act to get the personal data the hackers have disclosed so far removed from the Internet.
However, It’s unlikely to be a prevention measure, because once the personal data has been publicly exposed over the Internet, it becomes almost next to impossible to stop its spread.
