Hackers Threaten To Expose 37m Cheaters Who Use Adultery Website AshleyMadison

Cheaters social network AshleyMadison has been breached by hackers threatening to leak the personal details of the site’s 37 million users.

Based on the tagline, “Life is short. Have an affair”, AshleyMadison facilitates cheating among its members.  

The social network for adulterers was targeted by a group of hackers called The Impact Team, who began posting the details of some of AshleyMadison’s users online.

However, Canadian company Avid Life Media, which owns AshleyMadison, managed to take down several of the links, according to cybercrime blog KrebsOnSecurity.

The Impact Team claimed it carried out the hack to expose a service advertised by AshleyMadison that allows users to erase their profile for a $19 fee.

The hackers claim this service doesn’t go as far as removing users’ purchase details, including their names & addresses.

They demanded that AshleyMadison & Established Men, another dating website owned by Avid Life Media, were taken offline.

In a statement, the Impact Team said: “Avid Life Media has been instructed to take Ashley Madison & Established Men offline permanently in all forms, or we will release all customer records, including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies & matching credit card transactions, real names & addresses, & employee documents & emails.”
