Markus frind started dating empire

The parents' lawsuit alleges photos of their son, who was killed in Iraq in 2007, were used without permission.

The parents were seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

On Tuesday, the dating website Plenty of Fish got acquired by Match Group, an IAC/Inter Active subsidiary that recently announced plans to go public later this year.

Plenty of Fish sold to Match Group for 5 million in cash.

In an August 2012 interview, Markus Frind stated that based on the millions of relationships and marriages Plenty Of Fish has created over the past several years, it is estimated that over one million babies have been born as a result of the website.

Then, this happened (still, according to Frind): At midnight Miami time my wife gets a call from Chris Russo that plentyoffish has been hacked into and that Russians have taken over his computer and are trying to kill him, and his life is in extreme danger and they are currently downloading plentyoffish’s database. I listened in the background and I closed the breach if indeed there was one while my wife was on the phone and then I immediately ordered an investigation.They'll be moving to a 250,000 IOPS Ram San to handle the load.Also upgraded to a core database machine with 512 GB of RAM, 32 CPU’s, SQLServer 2008 and Windows 2008.He has retained complete ownership of the company, which has 75 employees."By the time I found out what VCs were, I was already making millions in profit, and I didn't see the need to raise money because I wouldn't know what to do with it," he told Business Insider.The title of strangest WTF story of my morning is Plentyoffish CEO Markus Frind recounting how his online dating site got hacked, he and his wife were harassed and someone clumsily attempted to extort his company in the aftermath of the events. First up, Frind points out that the site has indeed been hacked last week in a “well planned and sophisticated attack”.Apparently, POF users’ email addresses, usernames and passwords were downloaded, although Frind does not say how many.Update 2: This seems to be a POF Peer1 love fest infomercial.It's pretty content free, but the production values are high.Lots of quirky sounds and fish swimming on the screen. Plenty Of Fish is a hugely popular on-line dating system slammed by over 45 million visitors a month and 30 million hits a day (500 - 600 pages per second).Update: by Facebook standards Read/Write Web says POF is worth a cool one billion dollars. But that's not the most interesting part of the story. How are all these love connections made using so few resources? and u know where everyone hopes it leads to in their own different ways.
