Until now, hackers had revealed the personal details of Ashley Madison, a Canada-based online dating service and social networking service marketed to people who are married or in a committed relationship, users’. It seems they have a big plan as they recently hacked the emails of the site’s founder and CEO of parent company Avid Life Media, Noel Biderman.
As Biderman tried to convince the reporter that the previous data breach was not true, this time the hacker posted a message for him which says, “Hey Noel, you can admit it’s real now.”
Along with the CEO, the millions of email addresses for customers of the dating site that facilitates extra-maritnal affairs were revealed, including those of US government officials, UK civil servants and executives at major corporations.
The hackers got accessed through emails sent and received by him. The file with Biderman’s name on it has contained nearly 14 gigabytes of data.
According to a published in The Independent, the U.S. Defense Department and Postal Service is investigating the alleged use of military and other government email accounts on the site.
Executive Director of the Louisian Republican party Jason Doré told the Times-Piscuyune paper he was on a list of accounts because the site was used for “opposition research.”
