GIZMODO - Jan 17 - Aaron DeVera, a member of New York City's task force on cyber sexual assault, said they discovered the images on a website known for trading in malicious software. The reason the photos were collected remains unclear, but their availability to cybercriminals has raised serious concerns that it may be used to commit illegal acts. Tinder said it would take whatever steps it could to have the data removed offline. Tinder noted that all of the photos are public and can be viewed by others through regular use of the app; although, obviously, the app is not designed to help a single person amass such a massive quantity of images. The app can also only be used to view the profiles of other users within 100 miles.
