Ashley Madison Slips Into Something More Comfortable To Shake Its Bad Rep TechCrunch

The group of hackers that previously stole massive amounts of user data from popular cheating website Ashley Madison appear to have carried out their threat to publish that data on the Internet , releasing almost 10 gigabytes containing numerous details about the site’s customers on Tuesday. After being in a sexless and loveless marriage for 15 yrs. It alleges negligence against Ashley Madison in keeping its customers’ data secure. This meant that some people who had never signed up for Ashley Madison were included in databases published online after the hack, it said. While doing research in a coffee shop, I was struck by how blatant the Ashley Madison branding was. Ashley Madison is an online dating app for married people to find someone on the side for an affair.

The company also inappropriately retained some personal information after profiles had been deactivated or deleted by users and did not adequately ensure the accuracy of customer email addresses, the report said. Security researchers said on Wednesday that they believe the data released following the hack at Ashley Madison is authentic. Despite Ruby Life Inc, the company behind Ashley Madison, claimed that the hacking group had been stealing information for a long period of time, the truth is that much of the information leaked did not match the dates described.

Scammers target people across different demographics on every dating platform possible. You are tempted to have an affair, which man isn’t, after all it’s a bit on the side you can get given how you are lured in by the women on offer on the Ashley Madison site. In its ultimatum to Avid Life Media, the hackers promised to publicly release the data and embarrass the company’s customers. One email in the data dump, for example, appears to belong to former UK Prime Minister (Tony Blair).

About a year ago, a single male friend of mine mentioned that his efforts at finding a long-term relationship were being hamstrung by the fact that an increasing number of the women he met on dating apps were already married. The reason most women are concerned about their husband being on a dating site is as it is for you, uniquely personal. A company spokesperson told Mashable more than 1.4 million unique connections are made every month and more than 1.5 million messages are sent each day.

Hackers published some of the data that month, threatening to reveal more information if the company ignored their demands to take down Ashley Madison and another site, Established Men, that pairs older men with young women. There were even several suicides as a result of the exposure of Ashley Madison customers’ data. The people who use Ashley Madison aren’t exactly broadcasting their usage to the world. You can send internal messages, both sending and reading them is charged.
