Passwords and Sexual Desires for Dating Site ‘Fling’ hacked and up for sale

Joseph Cox reports:

A hacker claims to be selling tens of millions of user accounts for adult dating site on the dark web, including information on sexual desires, preferences, and other personal details.

“Find sex by contacting fellow Fling members and get laid tonight,” the site reads. “Check out millions of fun photos and watch webcams that allow you to party with members live on the best adult personals.” Users can send private messages to each other, upload pictures and more.

The data is being sold on the Real Deal market, a dark web site specialising in the peddling of stolen data and computer exploits, by a hacker who goes by the name Peace.

Note that Fling has reportedly confirmed the authenticity of the data, but claims it is from a breach in 2011. Did they detect the breach in 2011, and did they ever notify anyone about it? Anyone know?
