20 years of data stolen from online from internet hook-up destination


Considered the biggest hack of 2016.

The adult-themed social network was breached in October 2016 and hackers were able to collect 20 years of data on six breached databases.

The breached information included names, email addresses and passwords. More than 400 million of the 412 million hacked accounts’ passwords were 'cracked' even before the data was published on a data leak website as many of the passwords were protected only by the weak SHA-1 hashing algorithm or stored as plain text.
