The Russian online dating site Topface says it has made a payment to a hacker who discovered a vulnerability on the site that enabled him to breach it, exposing 20 million e-mail addresses.
"Hackers and fraudsters are likely to leverage stolen credentials to commit fraud not on the original hacked site, but to use them to exploit password re-use to automatically scan and compromise other sites, including banking, travel and e-mail providers," he said.
"He has confirmed the findings of our investigation and has made an agreement with Topface for no further distribution of [the] acquired e-mail address database," Topface says.
"Due to the fact that he has not passed the data to anyone and has no intention to do so in the future, we will not accuse him.
