The last couple of days were hectic for me as I responded to media requests for copies of the Ashley Madison data (they couldn’t or wouldn’t download the torrent themselves). It cost me a few USB sticks! Thereafter I was chased to explain how the files worked and take reporters etc through the data.
So the hacking group Impact Team lived up to their threat and released 9.7GB of Ashley Madison (ashleymadison.com) website data to the Dark Web. Ashley Madison is a dating site geared towards people in relationships who want to have an affair – their motto is “Life is short. Have an affair.”
