The databases also included site membership data, such as if the user was a VIP member, browser information, the IP address last used to log in, and if the user had paid for items.ZDNet verified the portion of data by contacting some of the users who were found in the breach.
When pressed on details, Ballou declined to comment further.Dating Naked is a series that explores the art of romance, free of preconceived notions, stereotypes -- and clothes.In each episode, two new men and women will strip down for a shot at igniting a spark with our primary daters.The three largest site's SQL databases included usernames, email addresses, and the date of the last visit, and passwords, which were either stored in plaintext or scrambled with the SHA-1 hash function, which by modern standards isn't cryptographically as secure as newer algorithms.Leaked Source said it was able to crack 99 percent of all the passwords from the databases.But why Friend Finder Networks has held onto millions of accounts belonging to customers is a mystery, given that the site was sold to Penthouse Global Media in February."We are aware of the data hack and we are waiting on Friend Finder to give us a detailed account of the scope of the breach and their remedial actions in regard to our data," said Kelly Holland, the site's chief executive, in an email on Saturday.
Holland confirmed that the site "does not collect data regarding our members' sexual preferences."Leaked Source said breaking with usual tradition because of the kind of breach, it will not make the data searchable.
One user (who we are not naming because of the sensitivity of the breach) confirmed he used the site once or twice, but said that the information they used was "fake" because the site requires users to sign up.
Another confirmed user said he "wasn't surprised" by the breach.
that being said, women do go back and forth on what they are looking for in a relationship.
if you have enough of these guys who are disinterested, eventually a woman is going to be on the lookout for a man who is totally interested off the bat. but in the end, these guys dont last because the woman gets bored.
i think its all about what suits your needs at the time and as we know, people's needs (womenz needs especially) change with the wind, dont they?
