At the time I’m writing, no one has claimed responsibility for the data breach, the company has confirmed the incident but hasn’t provided any information on the number of customers affected by the attack.The story was first reported by The Channel 4 news website on Thursday and warned users of the popular dating website that has more than 64 million members.

Back in October, it wasn’t clear how many botnets were being used, but the number of bots have appeared to dwindle by a lot since then.“The stolen data reveals the sexual preferences of users, whether they’re gay or straight, and even indicates which ones might be seeking extramarital affairs.In addition, the hackers have revealed email addresses, usernames, dates of birth, postal codes and unique internet addresses of users’ computers.” reported the Channel 4 site.There is no requirement for authentications or credentials to access it.Krebs On Security warned anyone looking to do spyware research to use a virtual machine that doesn’t run Microsoft Windows because spammers are typically involved in distributing malicious software and those that have a vast network of botnets are usually involved in creating or commissioning malware and cyberattacks.
