All data pertaining to customers should be automatically classified and encrypted the moment it is created, ensuring that only authorised users can open it.

In a word, it looks like Adult Friend Finder had as close to no security as you can get while running such a website.” Mark James, Security Specialist at “This leaked data is astounding.

The fact that people are still using the most common passwords we see time and again is truly amazing.
