Hackers To Release Identities Of 37 Million “Cheating Dirtbags”
Today just got a lot more interesting! Hackers are threatening to release the identities of people with accounts on the affair seeking Ashleymadison.com.
Think of Ashley Madison as the Match.com for pond scum. It's mission statement promises discreet encounters for married people. Their motto? Life is short, have an affair. Karma may have just bitten its users in the butt.
A hacker group called The Impact Team says they've overtaken all of the systems belonging to Ashley Madison's parent company and will release the real names, credit card numbers and secret sexual fantasy information of 27 million users if the company doesn't come clean about it's policies regarding deleting your profile.
Right now a user can supposedly completely erase their profile for $19, but the hackers say that doesn't actually work. The purchase details aren't totally scrubbed and still include the real names/addresses of the users.
