Friendfinder didn’t instantly comment however the network has confirmed that they have identified and fixed the vulnerability that was related to the ability to access source code through an injection vulnerability. The passwords were stored in weak SHA1 or plainly visible format algorithm, which increases the defenselessness. Almost 99 percent of the passwords were been cracked mentioned the report.
