Hackers claim to have in their possession the personal details of over 37 million cheating spouses on the dating website Ashley Madison and have threatened to release nude photos and sexual fantasies of the site’s clients unless it is shut down, Security blog KrebsOnSecurity reported.
Ashley Madison’s Canadian parent, Avid Life Media, confirmed the breach of its systems and said it had since secured its site and was working with law enforcement agencies to try to trace those behind the attack. The hackers also demanded the closure of another of Avid Life Media’s sites, sugar-daddy site “Established Men,” but did not target the company’s “CougarLife” site, which caters to women looking for “a young stud.”
Shutting down AM (Ashley Madison) and EM (Established Men) will cost you, but noncompliance will cost you more, a Statement from hackers group, The Impact Team.
