AdultFriendFinder.com, the “world’s largest sex and swinger community,” had roughly 412 million accounts exposed by hackers, including 5,650 “.gov” emails and 78,301 “.mil” addresses.

The AdultFriendFinder network, which “has helped millions of people find traditional partners, swinger groups, threesomes, and a variety of other alternative partners,” was hacked by unknown cybercriminals, according to Sunday reports.

Virtually all government employees get “.gov” domain names, while “.mil” is specifically for the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and other offices under the DOD umbrella.

The customer information was analyzed by LeakedSource.com, an online database of leaks and hacks. “Usually people ask us how many .gov and .mil emails exist on sites like this which is easy enough to check,” the website described in its official blog post.

Other consumers of the salacious service used Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail and Gmail email addresses for their log-in credentials. (RELATED: Zuckerberg HACKED, Password Literally Consisted Of Two Letters)

LeakedSource did not provide any personal details pertaining to the thousands of accounts that used a state-sponsored email address.

At its peak in 2014, the risqué AdultFriendFinder had 67,677,193 users.
