Ashley Madison Hacked it has been reported, their private customer databases have been breached, and a small portion of the breach has already been leaked online. The website is a niche dating site, the niche, however, is far from okay for people to discover you on. It is advertised as a way to cheat on your spouse. Many people, after learning of the breach, are worried that their marriages are going to be ruined by this hack.
What was included in the hack was credit card information, names, addresses and more personal information on their clients. Even people who have paid to have their profiles removed had their data stolen as the company lied about deleting the data and still retained all of their information. They simply hid the information from the public eye. The hack was done by hacktivists who claim the company is a fraud, a scam and if they do not take down their websites that they will lose even more. “We are not opportunistic skids with DDoS or SQLi scanners or defacements. We are dedicated, focused, skilled, and we’re never going away. If you profit off the pain of others, whatever it takes, we will completely own you.”
