Adult friend finder similar meet women free
I am personally aware of seven previous hacks and there are rumors of dozens, if not hundreds of prior hacks. The hacks that reach public awareness are extremely rare.
For a hack to reach public awareness someone has to make a serious mistake, or they are demanding money or some other asset or, in the case of ROR[RG], they have an ax to grind.
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.
This was absolutely not the first hack of Adult Friend Finder.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.In this case, the administrator would have had two opportunities to notice the abnormality: 1) At the database level, as the data was extracted.2) At the webserver level, where an abnormal amount of traffic would be sent to a specific address.However, much the same way metadata collection provides insight to the NSA, this type of information provides attackers with plenty of leverage that can be used against the public.Spear phishing becomes a lot easier when attackers not only have an email address, but also location, language, and race.Another possible mechanism could have been hijacking ssh keys from a compromised admin account or github, but those tend to be secondary in most cases.Either way, the database dump itself is 570 megabytes, and assuming the data was exfiltrated in a few large transactions, it would have been very noticeable on a network level.ROR[RG] insisted that Adult Friend Finder (the company) owed a friend of his nearly a quarter of a million dollars.He wanted his friend to get paid, so he went public.
