Hackers have stolen and leaked the personal details of users of Ashley Madison — a site that hooks up people who want to have affairs.
A group or individual known as The Impact Team claimed to be behind the attack and that it had data on all of Ashley Madison’s 37 million users and its partner sites, Cougar Life and Established Men, all owned by Canada’s Avid Life Media (ALM).
The Impact Team claims to have access to the company’s user database and is threatening to release all of the information unless the site is taken down. So far the group has released 40MB of data which include credit card details as well as internal ALM files and documents.
ALM confirmed that the hack took place and told CNBC it has managed to take down all the personal information that was posted online by the hackers.
“Using the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), our team has now successfully removed the…posts related to this incident as well as all Personally Identifiable Information (PII) about our users published online,” ALM said in an emailed statement.
“Our team of forensics experts and security professionals, in addition to law enforcement, are continuing to investigate this incident and we will continue to provide updates as they become available.”
