One security analyst had previously warned the company of a local file inclusion flaw, and following that warning the hackers were able to run malicious software. A collision occurs when two different message inputs, or passwords, generate the same hash.That security analyst, known as Revolver, denied any participation in the hack. Hackers can use this collision exploit to their advantage.LFI is an exploit of a vulnerability that occurs an input is not properly sanitized. FFN had no parameters when setting up an online account allowing users to create simple passwords, of the 412 million users 900,420 of the user passwords were “123456”.This means that the page is not protected against directory traversal characters, such as dot-dot-slash, which can lead to code being injected into a path that leads to a file. The main purpose of the security breach seemed to be to harvest private information that was weakly secured. was hacked exposing 4 million accounts which contained sensitive information including sexual preferences and whether a user was looking for an external affair. One of the biggest reasons SHA-1 is vulnerable is because of an exploit called “collision”.
i Cams.com, and an unknown domain, according to web security firm High-Tech Bridge.
Last month a hacker known as Revolver or 1x0123 claimed he had gained access to the site’s backend servers through a Local File Inclusion hack before posting two screenshots purporting to show compromised data to his Twitter feed.
The latest breach follows a high profile hack in May 2015 that led to the leaking of 4 million records.
This stolen information has in large part been posted to various places across the internet making the information easily accessible to malicious opportunists and to the general public. This attack is very common and there are straightforward ways to prevent these attacks.
Local File Inclusion(LFI) was the type of attack that breached A. This attack is where the hacker is attempting to gain access to the server by including a malicious file in a vulnerability found when a multimedia file upload is incorrectly configured by the server. and their sister sites, 99 percent of the server database containing usernames, passwords, and emails were cracked as Friend Finder Network(FFN) stored sensitive information in plain text and used an outdated security algorithm known as Secure Hash Algorithm with pepper (SHA-1) .
