hellkyng writes “The online dating site PlentyofFish was hacked, and purportedly 30 million customer records were stolen. The site’s founder, Markus Frind, is blaming the security researcher who discovered the vulnerability and the journalist who confirmed the issue.” The researcher who reported the vulnerability is Chris Russo, one of the guys who hacked The Pirate Bay last year. He explained his side of the story as well. Mr. Frind says he tracked down Russo’s Facebook page and emailed his mom.
