Thousands of Irish users of a sex site could have private information exposed

A sex site, AdultFriendFinder.com, has been hacked which could result in over 10,000 Irish user's private details being exposed.

The site, which describes itself as "the world's largest sex and swinger community", has accounted for 339.7million of the accounts exposed.

According to The Herald, over 10,000 of these accounts belong to Irish users who could have their private details exposed.

The hack also retreived over 15 million deleted accounts.

Back in October the website's parent company, Friend Finder Network, was hacked with passwords and email addresses of over 400million accounts being leaked. It was one of the largest data breaches ever.

Diana Ballou, vice president and senior counsel told ZDNet.com:

"Over the past several weeks, FriendFinder has received a number of reports regarding potential security vulnerabilities from a variety of sources.

"Immediately upon learning this information, we took several steps to review the situation and bring in the right external partners to support our investigation.

"We did identify and fix a vulnerability related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability."
