Adult Friend Finder Phishing Alert

Adult Friend Finder is one of the most heavily trafficked sites in the U.S. for adults that are looking for casual encounters and has over 40 million registered users. The owners of the site owed a fairly large amount of money to someone and apparently, they didn’t pay. So in revenge, it appears that the site was hacked and 4 million accounts stolen and the info posted online. The problem is that given the highly personal nature of AFF, this opens up a perfect opportunity for scammers to exploit users who are worried about details of their AFF activities coming to light.

So imagine your users receiving an email blackmailing them or threatening to out them unless they click on a link or take some other action. We suggest alerting all your users to be on the lookout for threatening messages like this and delete them immediately.

Everyone stay safe out there!
