At the time I’m writing, no one has claimed responsibility for the data breach, the company has confirmed the incident but hasn’t provided any information on the number of customers affected by the attack.
The story was first reported by The Channel 4 news website on Thursday and warned users of the popular dating website that has more than 64 million members.
"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 sex and dating site Adult Friend Finder has been hacked for the second time (that we know of), according to the breach notification website Leaked Source, and the world's truly lousy password habits have again been exposed in the process.
The breach reportedly occurred in October, with more than 400 million accounts from over two decades now leaked.
