• Ashley Madison ‘cheater’ files hit the dark web


    WASHINGTON, D.C.: A hacker group made good on its pledge to release user data stolen from the affair website Ashley Madison, creating a potential privacy and security debacle for millions. Security experts said Wednesday the files on some 32 million members of the website appeared to be genuine. Ashley Madison parent company Avid Life Media called the leak “an act of criminality” and urged anyone with information about the hackers to step forward to help law enforcement. The data dump was first reported Tuesday by Wired magazine, which said the post on the “dark web” included millions of payment transactions, email addresses and phone numbers of people who were registered on the infidelity site.
