The 64 million members of AdultFriendFinder.com no doubt are sweating it out following a security breach of the sex hookup site. 

From Reuters:

"FriendFinder Networks Inc. recently became aware of a potential data security incident," the company said in a statement on Friday. "The security of our members' information remains our top priority and, upon learning of this incident, we took immediate action," it said.

The company offered few details of the hack, though it said it was "temporarily disabling the username search function and masking usernames of any users we believe were affected by the security issue," Reuters reports.

If any of the member names get published online, there will be a lot of 'spaining to do because AdultFriendFinder is not being coy:
