My XWH told me about it this morning and I said BRAVO to the hackers!! I hope every last cheater is exposed for the dirtbags they are, and I feel bad for the BS's who are about to get an ugly surprise. It would be nice if this was the last of that shitty website, but I'm sure they'll return to business as usual soon enough.

XWH has been extra nice today too, wonder if I'll be finding his name on the list. It wouldn't even surprise me at this point.

Just read the article...and apparently it's actually members who hacked it because they were upset that their information wasn't being deleted as THEY don't get caught...

I was hoping it was some kick ass Betrayed vigilante or something...haha

Gotta say as a FWS, I do feel bad for any and all BS's who may be about to have a JFO moment. But I am glad the database was hacked, and for me it's even more evidence for WS's that the need for them to come clean directly with their BS rather than being "discovered" has to happen now. There is never a right time to be honest. It won't eliminate the hurt and pain, but it will bring a faster path to recovery than waiting for this data to be leaked out.

And the fact it damages AM's business model by making people think twice about signing up, well, that's the best news I can take from this story!

Have to say I laughed when I found out. I absolutely agree that it will be great to see the AM business suffer, but unfortunately they will always have customers. The next site needs to be Seeking Arrangements.

I read that the site created to reveal some of this info was taken down thanks to Scumbag Inc's (sorry, AM's) lawyers. The thing is, while the site may be offline *the hackers still have that info*. Did they think that just because they got the site taken down, the info just went away?? Not how it works, folks. And I still think it would be pure Karma if Mrs. Biderman was a paying customer.

Here is the full letter they wrote. They give out a few names and say they are releasing 2500 +/- names to show they are real.

But all the links are dead and there are three file names that it would be listed under. None of them result in squat.

Seems like someone has their own hackers to delete all traces of this. MakingMyFuture how do I search the deep web?

I'm also reaching out to a computer whiz I know to see if I can get my hands on it.

Avid Life Media runs Ashley Madison, the internet's #1 cheating site, for people who are married or in a relationship to have an affair. ALM also runs Established Men, a prostitution/human trafficking website for rich men to pay for sex, as well as cougar life, a dating website for cougars, man crunch, a site for gay dating, swappernet for swingers, and the big and the beautiful, for overweight dating.

Trevor, ALM's CTO once said "Protection of personal information" was his biggest "critical success factors" and "I would hate to see our systems hacked and/or the leak of personal information"

Well Trevor, welcome to your worst fucking nightmare.

We are the Impact Team. We have hacked them completely, taking over their entire office and production domains and thousands of systems, and over the past few years have taken all customer information databases, complete source code repositories, financial records, documentation, and emails, as we prove here. And it was easy. For a company whose main promise is secrecy, it's like you didn't even try, like you thought you had never pissed anyone off.

Avid Life Media has been instructed to take Ashley Madison and Established Men offline permanently in all forms, or we will release all customer records, including profiles with all the customers' secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses, and employee documents and emails. The other websites may stay online.

So far, ALM has not complied.

First, we expose that ALM management is bullshit and has made millions of dollars from complete 100% fraud. Example:

-Ashley Madison advertises "Full Delete" to "remove all traces of your usage for only $19.00"

-It specifically promises "Removal of site usage history and personally identifiable information from the site"

-Full Delete netted ALM $1.7mm in revenue in 2014. It's also a complete lie.

-Users almost always pay with credit card; their purchase details are not removed as promised, and include real name and address, which is of course the most important information the users want removed.

-Other very embarrassing personal information also remains, including sexual fantasies and more

-We have all such records and are releasing them as Ashley Madison remains online.

Avid Life Media will be liable for fraud and extreme personal and professional harm from millions of their users unless Ashley Madison and Established Men are permanently placed offline immediately.

Our one apology is to Mark Steele (Director of Security). You did everything you could, but nothing you could have done could have stopped this.

This is your last warning,

Impact Team

We are not opportunistic skids with DDoS or SQLi scanners or defacements. We are dedicated, focused, skilled, and we're never going away. If you profit off the pain of others, whatever it takes, we will completely own you.

For our first release, and to prove we have done all we claim, we are listing *one* Ashley Madison credit card transaction for each day for the past 7 years, complete with customer name and address (oneperday.txt) and associated profile information (oneperday_am_am_member.txt and oneperday_aminno_member.txt, selected rows from our complete dump of the AM databases). We are also releasing a hash dump and zone file for both domains, select documents from your file servers, executives' google drives, and emails, and the Ashley Madison source code repository. Also, since Ashley Madison stopped using plaintext passwords, we're also releasing the swappernet user table, which still has plaintext passwords:!f4smmDCa!YM7eJE2uxDvjGhxPERYk5tgBgeRyZoEYc9d0JMFUCP0

1 example from this dump: "PERNELL GRAZETTE", with profile ID 23288650, who spitefully paid for Ashley Madison the day after valentine's day in 2014, lives at 10 charlotte st. Brockton, MA in the US, with email UPFRONT73@AOL.COM. He is not only married/attached, but is open to a list of fantasies from Ashley Madison's list: |29|44|39|37|7|, a.k.a. "Cuddling & Hugging", "Likes to Go Slow", "Kissing", and "Conventional Sex". He's looking for 'A woman who seeks the same things I seek: passion and affection. If you have such desires then we will get alone just fine','|54|11|9|' which means "Good Communicator", "Discretion/Secrecy", and "Average Sex Drive". He also says "I have only two personal interests on this site. Making sure that You are comfortable with me should I be so fortunate to hold your attention and making sure I take the role of discretion to an artform. I mean isn't this why we are here, to be as discreet as possible?" From the login table, we know his user ID is 'Heavy73' and password hash is '$2a$12$ndvz/F.EXyJKRYkrErX/w.EDgzF7cNkJcQvNeDGQylEMHRw2COLZO'.

As another, profile ID 48040 is listed as a "paid delete", which means a few of his profile text boxes are gone, but from purchase records we know it is "RICKIE RAMRATTAN" from "5499 Cosmic Crescent" "Mississauga","ON" "L4Z3P8" whose fantasies are |7|40|17|34|33|37|38|48|36|42|43|50|44|32|39|29|49|18|, which includes "Likes to Give Oral Sex", "Likes to Receive Oral Sex", "Light Kinky Fun", "Role Playing", "Erotic Tickling", "Erotic Movies", "Good With Your Hands", "Sensual Massage", and "Dressing Up/Lingerie" among others. You must be glad you paid for your profile to be deleted, huh?

Too bad for those men, they're cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion. Too bad for ALM, you promised secrecy but didn't deliver. We've got the complete set of profiles in our DB dumps, and we'll release them soon if Ashley Madison stays online.

And with over 37 million members, mostly from the US and Canada, a significant percentage of the population is about to have a very bad day, including many rich and powerful people.

Well, Noel? Trevor? Rizwan? What's it going to be?

SnafuNJ. I don't have access to the deep web. I work close enough to the cyber security space to know it is real and although I interact with light hackers, any legit hacker would never engage with me because I'm not technical enough. Otherwise I would have hired them.

I happen to know a bit more about AM because I started going down the path of suing them before I determined it was easier to get rid of my POS cheating x than to deal with it. I was more doing it as a final 'up yours' to him by that point. X had the nerve to deny a profile was him that clearly was a portion of his face (and had enough in the profile that I was 100% sure). He denied upside down and backwards. I said "ok, there is a fraction of a % that it's not you, but that means you must really be pissed about the identity theft...we can sue for that". I thought he would cave. He didn't and I frankly would have been willing to spend the money if I was sure I could get the info from the company for proof of what a POS he is. Met with multiple attorneys and also talked with AM directly (which is worthless by the way)

In other news... My now XH is still a POS. Because he just moved outside of the 20 mile search radius for that profile. What do you know, that person with the profile who is absolutely NOT X moved within 20 miles of X's new address at the same time!! So he is Trolling after more married women on the down low so he can keep up his 'sad sausage/good dad' image in real life.

They certainly are. Here is an article about Reddit's adultery group. Already planning as a group their gaslighting plans.

Huff Post blog today entitled "Life is Short, Have an Affair" This tickled my funnybone even though it is a serious subject...

Our Married Dating Services for Married individuals Work. Ashley Madison is the most successful website for finding an affair and cheating partners. Have an Affair today on Ashley Madison. Thousands of cheating wives and cheating husbands signup everyday looking for an affair. We are the most famous website for discreet encounters between married individuals. Married Dating has never been easier. With Our affair guarantee package we guarantee you will find the perfect affair partner. Sign up for Free today.

Now that you have read this, do you have any questions? I did. Here are a list of the questions, and thoughts that came to mind after reading about this company and the current security breach.

1. WTF? Is this for real?

2. No seriously, is this a real thing?

3. 37 Million people use this? Do these people have jobs?

4. If you're married, and have a job, where the hell do you find the time for a dating website?

5. I am really confused. Thirty-seven million people?

6. If life is short, shouldn't you love the one you're with? You know, the one you married?

7. Who is going to be liable for all of the murders that occur when the 37 million members information is leaked?

8. I hope John Bobbitt isn't a member.

9. I bet divorce attorneys love to advertise on this site.

10. If you're married, aren't you supposed to be monogamous? Am I thinking of something else?

11. You probably need to be really organized to cheat. I can't remember where I put my car keys. I would get caught in like five minutes. This would be ME

12. Married dating is a thing? If you're married, why are you dating?

13. I am really having a difficult time with this.

14. This is the most reputable married dating company? There are more? Oh Dear Lord!

15. This website has a guarantee? How can you guarantee you will find the perfect affair partner?

16. This is a rabbit hole. I need to stop.

I am very interested to see how this security breach plays out. I am also baffled at the fact that 37 million married people are members of an online dating service. I guess monogamy is a thing of the past. Perhaps we are on the verge of a new definition of marriage. Maybe instead of saying "I do" people should say, "I'll try, but when I get bored, I'll try something else." Because life is short. Have an affair.

Anotherangle25 ( new member #48683) posted at 10:07 PM on Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

I ask that you guys take a minute to consider the following situations and those who might be unintentionally affected if this information is released:

1. 2 years ago a man signed up for AM to spy and see if his wife had a profile, to his luck he discovers she does not, YAY!!!! Now when this information is released it will show that he in fact had a profile. Will his wife believe that it was only because he went through a tough time and became suspicious? Or will she think he is lying when he tries to explain himself?

2. A woman signs up for AM shortly in a bit of rage. They have had some tough times lately and she was a little fed up. She creates her profile and receives many messages (I always assume women get more than men on any type of dating website . After a week she realizes she has made a huge mistake. She did not cheat on her husband but now if this information comes out her name will be on the list. Once again will her husband believe her when she explains herself?

3. A woman was on AM and had an affair 3 years ago. She previously confessed it to her husband and they worked through the issues and are now happier than ever. Their friends and family were not aware of the affair. If this list comes out they will have to deal with the humiliation of everyone knowing.

In all these cases everyone’s friends, families and coworkers will become aware of their situation and it will be very humiliating for them. In some cases people may feel that they need to quit their job or move to a different town to avoid the embarrassment. The point is you don’t know everyone’s story. I am willing to bet of the 37 Million past or current members a fair number of them either removed their profile or paid for the full delete before anything happened. Yes you could argue that it was still wrong to sign up in the first place but they may have stopped before anything happened.

I will admit that I am guilty of both situation 1 and situation 2. I created an account once out of suspicion of my wife, I did not find anything. I also created an account out of suspicion and thought I would “peek around” on the site, this is at a time when my wife was very unhappy with her job, where we had moved, me working long hours and a few other factors. In both cases I deleted my profile after a very short period of time.

Looking back now my suspicion was stupid. My wife and I have a great relationship and I don’t know why I ever doubted her.

Is ruling my life, my wife’s life and our small child’s life (as we know it today) really fair punishment for our family?
