Data Of Millions Of Users Of Affairs Website Has Reportedly Been Leaked Online
Hackers have reportedly leaked the personal details of millions of users of the website AshleyMadison.com.
According to a number of reports, hackers have access to the details of about 37 million customers, having reportedly appointed themselves as ‘the moral judge, juror, and executioner’ of the popular affairs website.
The hackers had threatened in July to release the details unless the website Ashley Madison and a second site were taken offline.
“Avid Life Media has failed to take down Ashley Madison and Established Men,” the hackers, who call themselves The Impact Team are quoted as saying by Wired.
“We have explained the fraud, deceit and stupidity of ALM and their members. Now everyone gets to see their data.”
They reportedly used the dark web, which is only accessible using a specialized browser, to release the data.
