AdultFriendFinder Hack Exposes 412 Million Accounts

Dating website www.AdultFriendFinder.com reported a massive data breach in May of 2015. Now, less than 2 years later, the company is reporting a second breach and this one is much more severe. Reportedly, the hackers were able to compromise 412 Million accounts. Nearly every password in their database was stolen spanning 2 decades of customer data. This compromised data even includes approximately 15 Million deleted accounts. This means users who had an account 15 years ago and deleted it may still be at risk. Yikes!
