Hackers Threatening To Leak Details Of Ashley Madison’s 37 Million Customers; Divorce Lawyers About To Get Super Busy

Hackers have set their sights on poor horny people who want to get their rocks off with another consenting adult and it’s about to get really ugly.

Hackers claim to have personal details of more than 37 million cheating spouses on dating website Ashley Madison and have threatened to release nude photos and sexual fantasies of the site’s clients unless it is shut down, blog KrebsOnSecurity reported.

Ashley Madison’s Canadian parent, Avid Life Media, confirmed the breach on 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, who call themselves The Impact Team, leaked snippets of the compromised data online and warned they would release customers’ real names, profiles, nude photos, credit card details and “secret sexual fantasies” unless their demands were met, Krebs said.

Just terrible news for these people to wake up to on a Monday morning. It’s already a struggle and now you have these sexless nerds threatening to tell everyone in the world what kind of elaborate fantasies get your dick hard.

It also appears the hackers are not equal-opportunity blackmailers.

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 for women members looking for “a young stud”.

Now, if you’ll excuse me I have a believable explanation to come up with before my wife finds my name and penchant for Pig Latin dirty talk on someone else’s blog.
