Friend Finder Networks, stung last year when its Adult Friend Finder website was breached, could not be immediately reached for reaction (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).In May 2015 it was revealed that 3.9 million Adult Friend Finder accounts had been stolen by a hacker nicknamed ROR[RG] (see Dating Website Breach Spills Secrets).The alleged leak is likely to cause panic among users who created accounts on Friend Finder Network properties, which primarily are adult-themed dating/fling websites, and those run by subsidiary Steamray Inc., which specializes in nude model webcam streaming.Those types of vulnerabilities allow an attacker to supply input to a web application, which in the worst scenario can allow code to run on the web server, according to a OWASP, The Open Web Application Security Project.The person who found that flaw has gone by the nicknames 1x0123 and Revolver on Twitter, which has suspended the accounts.CSOonline reported that the person posted a redacted image of a server and a database schema generated on Sept. In a statement supplied to ZDNet, Friend Finder Networks confirmed that it had received reports of potential security problems and undertook a review.Some of the claims were actually extortion attempts.A Captain America fan might be connected with someone who’s really into Bucky Barnes, for example.At ten times what it was last October, the app’s small user base (around 10k downloads on Google Play) is growing faster than your action figure collection.

Bumble is like Tinder, but with all the power in the ladies’ thumbs, and far fewer inappropriate pics.
