It’s a scenario familiar to anyone who has tried internet dating.
All the female penguins are partnered up, and as they mate for life, poor Spruce is single.An Indianapolis woman says a man she met on a dating app carjacked her and then burglarized her home.According to the incident report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the woman went on a date with the man after meeting him on “Plenty of Fish,” an online dating website, Fox59 reported.For the first seven years, this worked really well, I got the site to 10 million users without any employees and Po F was generating a ton [sic] of relationships”But Frind said he would now be making changes, adding: “Intimate Encounters on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women.”In other changes he has curtailed users from contacting members where there are age gaps of 14 or more years.“There is no reason for a 50 year old man to contact 18-year-old women.The attack was 40 Gigabits in size, which makes it larger than the attack which took offline for nearly five days last month – that attack was “only” 8 GBps, the company had said at the time.
These DDo S attacks (distributed denial-of-service attacks) have become more powerful as of late, thanks to the way attackers are exploiting older internet protocols like Network Time Protocol, or NTP, to increase their size.
The majority of messages sent outside those age ranges are all about hook-ups,” he wrote.
He added that an estimated two per cent of male members had “started to use POF as more of a hook-up site mostly due to the casual nature of mobile phone use,” following the increasing popularity of smart phone apps among the site’s users.
That seems to be the case here, given the size of the attack that Plenty of Fish suffered.
Other companies that have been attacked more recently include Type Pad, Basecamp, Vimeo, Bit.ly, and as of this past weekend, marketing analytics software provider Moz, to name just a few.
The woman said her date carjacked her in the early morning hours Monday near 30 and Orchard after she reported the incident.
