The breach happened on the same server as the recent Adobe hack, which, according to the company, resulted in 38 million user mail addresses, encrypted passwords and password hints being compromised.

Earlier this month, however, security firm Last Pass claimed that information from more than 150 million user accounts had been exposed.

Many people aren't vigilant about creating a different password for every site they log onto, which is why unencrypted passwords are so problematic.

"Even the most inept web companies usually use a cryptographic hash to represent user passwords," Chester Wisniewski, senior security adviser at Sophos, told NBC News in an email.

This Valentine’s Day, Pew Research estimated that some 38 percent of U. Last Month, Hong and his team reviewed five “top dating apps,” and found that “all were vulnerable to hacking, containing exploits that would enable breaches similar to the infamous attack on Snapchat … the leaking of users’ data from an HIV-positive dating app.” And while Hong did not disclose which apps his team analyzed in his guest post for Venture Beat, he noted that “the two very most popular we analyzed have been downloaded between 10 million and 100 million times from Google Play alone.” Key to Seworks findings were the fact that all five of the apps were 100 percent decompilable, which Hong explains as “a process that enables hackers to reverse engineer and compromise an app.” Worse yet, “none of the dating apps [they] analyzed had protections to prevent or delay unauthorized decompiling,” and one of the apps “was not using secure communications, making it easy for hackers to intercept data being exchanged between the app and the server.” And perhaps most alarming was the fact that the source code of these apps was obfuscated, or in plain text.

Some of this text included “hard-coded key values, website addresses, and other critical information that could allow hackers access to sensitive data.” But it’s not just apps that are problematic.

“This event is not an act of hacktivism, it is an act of criminality.
