As a result, Conru started Adult Friend Finder, which he described as "a release valve".
Adult Friend Finder (AFF) is an internet-based, adult-oriented social network, online dating service and swinger personals community website, founded by Andrew Conru in 1996.
In 2007 AFF was one of the 100 most popular sites in the United States Days after the site went live, Conru found that people were posting naked pictures of themselves and seeking partners for adult-oriented activities.
The breach included 300 million Adult Friend Finder user accounts, including account data for 15 million accounts that had supposedly been "deleted".
The passwords had not been encrypted at all, or encrypted with the obsolete and insecure SHA-1.
Accessing certain features, such as e-mail, private chat rooms, webcams, blogging, and a webzine, requires paid membership.
Adult Friend Finder has an affiliate program, whereby webmasters are compensated for referring users to the site.
There is a "favorites" sidebar of commonly used and important folders on the left of the Finder window.
The modern Finder uses mac OS graphics APIs to display previews of a range of files, such as images, applications and PDF files.
The Quick Look feature allows users to quickly examine documents and images in more detail from the finder by pressing the space bar without opening them in a separate application.
The user can choose how to view files, with options such as large icons showing previews of files, a list with details such as date of last creation or modification, a "cover flow" view similar to i Tunes, and a "column view" influenced by mac OS's direct ancestor Ne XTSTEP.
The Finder is the default file manager and graphical user interface shell used on all Macintosh operating systems.
