There appears to be evidence that user information belonging to the Friend Finder Network of adult sites – including AdultFriendFinder, self-described as “one of the world’s largest sex hookup” sites, and various pornographic sites such as Cams.com and Penthouse.com – was stolen by hackers in October. Worse yet, it appears that the sites may have maintained information on deleted accounts – so, even people who had accounts and later deleted them may be exposed. Passwords – apparently improperly protected on the adult network – may have leaked as well.
