It's not bigger than Yahoo's abysmal security apocalypse, during which we just found out 500 million accounts were compromised in 2014.
Yet FFN's epic catastrophe far exceeds the likes of e Bay (145M), Anthem (80M), Sony (77M), JP Morgan Chase (76M), Target (70M) and Home Depot (56M).
The idea that there is one "adult industry" is little more than that, an idea.
In reality, it's a wide variety of small business entrepreneurs and large legacy businesses, with a ton of independent contractors constantly flowing through the global network.
It did not acknowledge the number of records exposed.
Although FFN advised users who might be reading its press release to change their passwords, it still hasn't notified its customers directly, and there are no notifications on any of its compromised websites.
Suffice to say, federal employees are in the category of pervs who need to make sure they aren't reusing any of those bad passwords on other accounts.
In that instance, Tek Security had discovered the files on a darknet forum, and noted that AFF hadn't reported the breach.
Like all sectors -- government, retail, finance and healthcare -- the adult and porn businesses are feeling the consequences of not making security a priority, in the worst possible ways. Take for example this week's breach-bloodbath, in which Friend Finder Networks (FFN) lost their Sourcefire code to criminal hackers and put their users in serious risk.
Combined with Ashley Madison's many deceits, FFN also contributed to the deepening public mistrust about the very sensitive data exchange between adult companies and their consumers.
We found out this week that "sex and swinger" social network Adult Friend Finder was breached, along with all of its other sites. (FFN) operates Adult Friend Finder.com, webcam sex-work site cams.com, and a few others; a total of six databases were reported in the haul.
The hack and dump performed on FFN has exposed 412,214,295 accounts, according to breach notification site Leaked Source, which disclosed the extent of the privacy disaster on Sunday.
