Adult friend finder network
Porn industry trade association Free Speech Coalition, for its part, is trying to lead the charge.
They recently released a brief with the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) to try and push porn sites to level up their secure connections and all use https.
Revolver is known for finding adult website security issues, and they confirmed to that the flaw was being actively exploited.
As we discovered by files exposed in the Ashley Madison breach, Friend Finder wasn't removing profiles that users believed to have been closed or removed.
This was the second breach for the site in less than two years.
In May 2015, Adult Friend Finder was hacked, and the attackers exposed details of nearly four millions users.
Like all sectors -- government, retail, finance and healthcare -- the adult and porn businesses are feeling the consequences of not making security a priority, in the worst possible ways. Take for example this week's breach-bloodbath, in which Friend Finder Networks (FFN) lost their Sourcefire code to criminal hackers and put their users in serious risk.
Combined with Ashley Madison's many deceits, FFN also contributed to the deepening public mistrust about the very sensitive data exchange between adult companies and their consumers.
