Friend Finder Network, Cams dot com registered users info leaked

Reading about a recent hack / data breach and leak from the friend finder network, which includes cams.com and adult friend finder (both sponsors of our systems) – and others. This is another leak of registered user information that includes perhaps 400 million users – this is different than the hack and leak of data that network had in May of 2015 that leaked 3 1/2 million user credentials. nude-dude-email-exposed-1j

I don’t have all the details at this time or know exactly what was leaked and what was not. Apparently some of the info like passwords for some people was encrypted with a crappy method that makes cracking that encryption frivolously easy. It appears that 99% of the passwords have already been cracked.

Flash Exploit and Firefox is Blocking the Chat Rooms Again

There have been several “zero day” flash player exploits released in the past week or so, and today I find that firefox is automatically blocking flash from running on web sites I visit.

Some will remember a while back when firefox had an update that broke our chat rooms for a while, but this current issue is completely different.

Snapchat exploit may expose everyone’s phone number and social profile addys

Just read this article at ars technica about a snapchat exploit that may allow people to expose all the phone numbers and social profiles of every snapchat user. It is assumed that people will buy and sell this data, and that sites will crop up and offer to expose your phone number and social profiles (I’m guessing your facebook url, twitter handle, etc), some for a fee to those who want to stalk you. If everything stated in this article is true (so far appears to be all legit) – then it may be time to cancel your snapchat account until this issue is addressed.
