It is the second major leak of private user information in less than two years - and it even contains details of DELETED accounts over the seedy service's 20 year history, Leaked Source has claimed.
Sister porn sites Penthouse, Stripshow and i Cams have also been skimmed of user data in what cyber security specialists have said is a hack that "raises serious alarm bells".
Friend Finder Networks, stung last year when its Adult Friend Finder website was breached, could not be immediately reached for reaction (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).
Troy Hunt, an Australian data breach expert who runs the Have I Been Pwned data breach notification site, says that at first glance some of the data appears legitimate, but it's still early to make a call.

If the data is accurate, it would mark one of the largest data breaches of the year behind Yahoo, which in October blamed state-sponsored hackers for compromising at least 500 million accounts in late 2014 (see Massive Yahoo Data Breach Shatters Records).
