An example of a privacy breach in international news

Friend Finder Networks, an adult dating and pornography site company, has been hacked exposing the private details of more than 412m accounts. This was not the first hack of Friend Finder Networks, but this hack is one hundred times larger than the previous hack in 2015.

There have been no consequences to the company as of yet, but all of the people whose accounts had been hacked. The details stolen included login details, emails, dates of birth, post codes, sexual preferences and whether they were seeking extramarital affairs.
