The casual dating website AdultFriendFinder and its parent company have contacted investigators to report that they suspect they’ve been hacked.
On Thursday, reports surfaced that the California-based website found that 3.9 million of their member base may have had their personal information leaked including addresses and sexual preferences.
The website’s parent company, FriendFinder Networks, issued a public statement addressing the matter.
They’ve also engaged the help of Mediant, a cybersecurity company to look into the situation.
The firm’s statement went on to say, “Until the investigation is completed, it will be difficult to determine with certainty the full scope of the incident, but we will continue to work vigilantly to address this potential issue and will provide updates as we learn more from our investigation. We cannot speculate further about this issue, but rest assured, we pledge to take the appropriate steps needed to protect our customers if they are affected.”
