The hackers who claimed to have stolen every bit of data from Ashley Madison, a dating website intended for adulterers, have made good on their promise to release the full database if the site didn’t shut down. Identifying themselves as Impact Team, the hackers have made available a frighteningly vast amount of data on Ashley Madison’s users and inner workings. Impact Team produced the information Tuesday, August 18, through the Tor network, a sort of parallel internet or “dark web” that keeps all traffic data anonymous. The breach contains data on 32 million Ashley Madison users, including names, usernames, addresses, phone numbers, and birth dates. The data also include users’ descriptions of themselves, often revealing their intentions in using the site—things like “I May Be Spoken 4 But I Speak 4 Myself” and “Let’s start as friends…” It also reveals several million individual credit card transactions that went to Ashley Madison. Each of these indicates the name of the person involved, their address, the last four digits of their credit card number, and the amount paid, among other information. http://qz.com/482875/whats-in-the-ashley-madison-database-that-hackers-released-online/ ------- Mixed feelings on this one. Obviously the hackers performed an illegal act by stealing the information from Ashley-Madison. But....releasing the names of people actively looking to commit the sin of adultery is....somehow....judicial? What say you?
