The hackers appeared to target Ashley Madison and Established Men over the questionable morals they condoned and encouraged, but they also took issue with what they considered ALM's fraudulent business practices.Despite promising customers to delete their user data from the site for a fee, the company actually retained the data on ALM’s servers, the hackers claimed.The files appear to include account details and log-ins for some 32 million users of the social networking site, touted as the premier site for married individuals seeking partners for affairs.Seven years worth of credit card and other payment transaction details are also part of the dump."I'm looking for someone who isn't happy at home or just bored and looking for some excitement," wrote one member who provided an address in Ottawa and the name and phone number of someone who works for the Customs and Immigration Union in Canada."I love it when I'm called and told I have 15 minutes to get to someplace where I'll be greeted at the door with a surprise—maybe lingerie, nakedness. I like lots of foreplay and stamina, fun, discretion, oral, even willingness to experiment—*smile*"Passwords released in the data dump appear to have been hashed using the bcrypt algorithm for PHP, but Robert Graham, CEO of Erratasec, says that despite this being one of the most secure ways to store passwords, "hackers are still likely to be able to 'crack' many of these hashes in order to discover the account holder's original password." If the accounts are still online, this means hackers will be able to grab any private correspondence associated with the accounts.One would think the 2015 incident had dished up enough bad karma to discourage users from returning, but that has not been the case.
Furthermore, it’s possible to sign up for multiple accounts using the same email address, which Kromtech said makes it all too easy for a hacker to set up a large number of accounts in a short span of time and start acquiring photos at a rate of hundreds or even thousands of users compromised per day.Ashley claimed to have nearly 40 million users at the time of the breach about a month ago, all apparently in the market for clandestine hookups."Ashley Madison is the most famous name in infidelity and married dating," the site asserts on its homepage. Thousands of cheating wives and cheating husbands signup everyday looking for an affair....With Our affair guarantee package we guarantee you will find the perfect affair partner."The data released by the hackers includes names, passwords, addresses and phone numbers submitted by users of the site, though it's unclear how many members provided legitimate details to open accounts.According to Forbes, Kromtech found that Ashley Madison, a dating site where adulterous spouses can connect with other married people looking for some extramarital action, has left users’ private photos exposed through a logical flaw in its default data settings.That’s on top of the massive hack that compromised the site in 2015.
sensitive customer information from the cheating site Ashley appear to have made good on their threat to post the data online.
