It’s a bad time for cheaters. Two months after Adult Friend Finder was compromised, Ashley-Madison was also hacked. The online infidelity broker was breached by a group known as “The Impact Team.” They now have account information for all of Ashley-Madison’s thirty-seven million users. Unless the website is permanently shut down, the “group” plans to release this information to the public:
Avid Life Media has been instructed to take Ashley Madison and Established Men offline permanently in all forms, or we will release all customer records, including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses, and employee documents and emails. The other websites may stay online.
How many members do you think comprise “The Impact Team”? Their demand sounds like the work of a nerd scorned. It sounds like a guy whose woman hooked-up with help from Ashley-Madison. He’s bitter and he wants the site removed. Your JoeDog will answer that question with his guess: it’s a team of one.
Ashley-Madison is a multi-million dollar industry. There’s no chance that Avid Life Media shuts down the site. The Impact Team will soon release that data and we’ll be treated to a lively news cycle. The list probably includes a sitting Senator or two….
