In November it emerged that Friend Finder Network Inc, the company that runs the AdultFriendFinder dating website, had been hacked for the second time in 18 months, with the attackers making off with some 20 years of users' data.
The data, which includes user names, emails and passwords, had been spilled on the LeakedSource website, but LeakedSource initially decided against publishing the whole lot.
"Friend Finder Network Inc is a company that operates a wide range of 18+ services and was hacked in October 2016 for over 400 million accounts representing 20 years of customer data, which makes it by far the largest breach we have ever seen," claimed LeakedSource.
"This event also marks the second time Friend Finder has been breached in two years, the first being around May 2015," it added.
The 400 million user number comes from the organisation's wider network that includes Penthouse.com, described as an "adult magazine akin to Playboy", and Cams.com, a site "where adults meet models for sex chat live through webcams".
AdultFriendFinder claimed the bulk of the users, however, with some 340 million of them. LeakedSource has decided against publishing the dataset from the hack, which it usually does.
"After much internal deliberation by the LeakedSource team, and for various reasons, we have decided that this dataset will not be searchable by the general public on our main page for the time being," the organisation said at the time.
