The exfiltrated records included million s from AdultFriendFinder. The data s for two decades' worth of data from the company's largest sites, according to breach notification LeakedSource, which obtained the data. ZDNet broke the news. This hack is very similar to the data breach they had last year. Their procedures and policies are severely lacking, even users who believed they deleted their s have been stolen again.
AdultFriendFinder has failed to learn from their mistakes and now million people are high-value targets for blackmail, phishing attacks and other cybercrime.
This is ten times worse than the Ashley Madison hack. Wait for a raft of class-action lawsuits. Sjouwerman predicted cyber criminals would leverage this event in several ways: spear- phishing attacks, bogus websites where you can "check if your spouse is cheating on you", or ways to find out if your own extramarital affair has come out. There will be phishing s that claim people can go to a website to find out if their private data has been released.
People that have had extramarital affairs can be made to click on links in s that threaten to out them. This is a nightmare that will be exploited by spammers, phishers and blackmailers who are now gleefully rubbing their hands, let alone the divorce lawyers and private investigators that are going to pour over the data. KnowBe4 shared an example of a phish that came out after the Ashley Madison extortion warning users to expect the bad guys to do the same thing with AdultFriendFinder which can be found on the KnowBe4 adult friend finder scams.
KnowBe4 recommends IT Managers take immediate preventive action to warn users. It only takes one second for a worried end-user or admin to click on a link in an and expose the network to attackers. For KnowBe4 customers, we have a new Current Events template that lures people into clicking on a link to a website to see if their spouse has not been faithful. The subject of the template is "Your spouse was found in the AdultFriendFinder list".
When we sent a template out after Ashley Madison, 4 percent of users clicked. This is a higher risk incident.
