Hacks of this nature seldom reach the Surface Web, and thereby, the attention of the press.For an adept hacker, Downloading the entire Friend Finder database is no more difficult than going to the library and checking out a book.Its flagship online dating services include Friend Finder and its various spin-off services (such as Adult Friend Finder, and other dating services targeting various territories and niche categories, such as the South America-focused Amigos.com, and Christian dating website Big Church), as well as niche websites for alternative lifestyles, and adult webcam websites.
This was absolutely not the first hack of Adult Friend Finder.What's often not highlighted in these cases is the monetary value of such a breach.Many would argue that having an email address and the associated data might be of little value.That is, if Adult Friend Finder were using a solution that provided visibility into network traffic.Ziften ZFlow™ enables network visibility into the cloud to catch aberrant data transfers and attribute to specific executing processes.I would estimate that for every computer hack that reaches the public’s knowledge there are 100 hacks that go unnoticed.All previous hacks of Adult Friend Finder that I am aware of were done by hackers who simply wanted to know whether their girlfriend, or boyfriend was possibly cheating on them.It’s not that Friend Finder has substandard security, it’s simply that very little, to a determined and talented hacker, is immune to access.I am not a top notch hacker, but I did spend most of my life attempting to stop hackers from accessing or damaging data.

Anyway, with my limited talents I could easily have walked into the Friend Finder database and collected the same thing that ROR[RG] collected and, using it for analysis, written my story. Instead I went to ROR[RG]’s area where he had placed the data.As usual, being a day late and a dollar short, by the time I knocked on the door he was selling incomplete segments of the database for non-exclusive use for ,000.
