(CNN) – Millions of customers may have had their personal information hacked in the second security breach at Friend Finder.

The dating service was hacked last year and is now dealing with a second breach.

The potential damage could affect 412 million accounts because the company has so many different operations, according to CNN Money.

The company runs the popular swinger and alternative dating website AdultFriendFinder.com and operates the sex chatting services Cams.com, iCams.com, and Stripshow.com. And it previously ran the porn site Penthouse.com.

The breach could also include 15 million people who thought they had deleted their accounts.

In a statement, the company said it has hired outside investigators to make sure website flaws “are reviewed and if validated, remediated as quickly as possible.”

The company also stated that it “is in the process of notifying affected users… how they can protect themselves.”
