Some of the information appears to come from deleted accounts, Leaked Source said. "Friend Finder takes the security of its customer information seriously and is in the process of notifying affected users to provide them with information and guidance on how they can protect themselves," Friend Finder said in the statement to the Washington Post.
"Our investigation is ongoing but we will continue to ensure all potential and substantiated reports of vulnerabilities are reviewed and if validated, remediated as quickly as possible." If the claims are true, the Friend Finder breach could be even larger than the 2015 hack of infidelity website "Ashley Madison." User data on as many as 36 million site visitors was exposed, leading to lawsuits by users.
But some of the documents are dated as recently as February 2016, suggesting they describe recent cyber tools and programs."We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence documents," CIA spokesman Jonathan Liu said in a statement.
Several cyber security consultants and contractors said the documents obtained by Wiki Leaks, dated between 20, appeared legitimate.
Wiki Leaks, led by Julian Assange, said its publication of the documents on the hacking tools was the first in a series of releases drawing from a data set that included several hundred million lines of code and included the CIA's "entire hacking capacity." Wiki Leaks said it published the CIA documents "while avoiding the distribution of 'armed' cyber-weapons until a consensus emerged on the technical and political nature of the CIA's program and how such 'weapons' should be analysed, disarmed and published."US intelligence agencies have said Wiki Leaks had ties to Russia's security services.
