Although the size of the breach is far greater, the nature of the data is less intimate than the previous FFN breach.
This time, email addresses, passwords, dates of last visits, browser information, IP addresses, and site membership status were revealed, reports The Guardian, citing data breach monitoring service Leaked Source.
Last year's breach also included users' dates of birth, postal codes, sexual preferences, and whether they were seeking extramarital affairs.
According to Leaked Source, reports The Guardian: "'Passwords were stored by Friend Finder Networks either in plain visible format or SHA1 hashed (peppered).
A security researcher known as Revolver claimed to find a flaw in Friend Finder Networks’ security in October, posting the information to a now-suspended Twitter account and threatening to 'leak everything' should the company call the flaw report a hoax." "This is criminal negligence, as it's not the first time," says Stu Sjouerman, CEO of security awareness training company Know Be4, in a statement.
