Another reason to worry: More than 1.9 million of the hacked accounts used the classic password 123456, while another 1.2 million used 111111.(The top non-numeric password was reportedly "iloveyou," followed by "lovely," "qwerty" and "password.")While Cupid Media says it only has 34 million users, the report claimed that the discrepancy between that number and the 42 million breached accounts could be attributed to the fact that "many companies have a habit of storing data on customers who are no longer active."Andrew Bolton, Cupid Media’s managing director, told Krebs that all of the company's affected users had been notified in January after the breach and that their passwords had been reset.
Whatever changes we make will go into effect from the date of revision without notice to you.
Your use of the Site after such changes will be deemed your acceptance of the changes.
The Australian-based Cupid Media, which owns more than 30 niche dating sites such as Asian and and Brazilian Cupid.com, has disputed that number, but admitted to Krebs that a breach did occur in January 2013. Because 42 million is one of the largest breaches to happen this year, made worse by the fact that the exposed passwords were stored as plain text.
Many people aren't vigilant about creating a different password for every site they log onto, which is why unencrypted passwords are so problematic.
