AdultFriendFinder ended up being compromised (again) in March 2016. As stated by LeakedSource, which gotten a copy for the dataset, this amounts to a lot more than 400m account, several with plaintext accounts, from AdultFriendFinder and related web pages.
The website would be promised with a neighborhood file inclusion exploit, which means that the web site’s laws permitted use of documents on the host that are not supposed to be open.
Almost several account have the code. About 100,000 host the code “password”.
The non-plaintext passwords happened to be quickly damaged in any event, it seems that from some roll-your-own encoding that concerned lowercasing things, SHA1ing they and going back to bed. The best accounts are “pussy.passwordLimitExceeded:07/1” and “gladiatoreetjaimelesexetjaimefum”, with a Blackadder fan in 3 with “antidisestablishmentarianism” and a sybarite who checks out XKCD in 4 with “pussypussymoneymoneyweedweed.”
Hotmail was actually by far the most mon mail carrier, accompanied by Yahoo and gmail. These three accounted for almost all subscribed contact, with AOL and real time the order of size down.
