My wife and I have been following this AM “hack” since it came out
We came to this site because a google search for AM hacked profiles brought us here.
We both have had a few interesting conversations with friends and family over the last few days about this and thought we would share them as no one else has really mentioned this.
First this doesn’t seem like a “typical hack”
The hacking group in question mentions a lot of names of people inside AM and even makes an apology to one of the AM employees.
The comments made by this hacking group seem to be personally directed at the AM CEO and one or two other people.
It almost seems like a personal vendetta by this person or hacking group.
We were thinking instead of a group this might be a disgruntled employee or ex-employee of AM
Maybe someone who worked in IT and was high enough in the food chain to have the keys to the kingdom I.E. all the admin passwords for the AM systems or had the ability it acquire them.
Second we all agree cheating is wrong.
But many bad things could possibly happen when all this data comes out.
We have thought of a few things.
1 Best case the couple works on whatever problems they have and works it all out.
2 middle of the road case they separate and the divorce lawyers buy new Jags
3 Worst case One or both of them are mentally unstable and this outing causes things to get physical which could result in some domestic violence maybe murder or a murder suicide possibly involving the entire immediate family including the kids.
You may think that is far-fetched but it has happened in the past and out of 30 million plus users we think the odds are fairly good some of them are pretty unbalanced.
At first thought this AM hack seems pretty funny unless of course you are on AM LOL
But once you give it some serious thought there is real potential for people to get physically hurt by the release of all this data.
30 plus million users is a lot of people so the potential the release of this data could affect someone we know or someone in our families is pretty high.
Lastly we won’t argue about if reposting the info the hacker or hackers released is right or wrong.
However in some jurisdictions it is illegal to repost information that was knowingly obtained through illegal means.
But before copying and pasting people’s names and addresses from the AM hack you might want to consider all of the above before you do.
Yes you are outing a cheater but you could possibly be helping ruining or ending lives by doing so.
If any of you are wondering
Yes my wife and I have both been cheated on (this is our second marriage)
So we know what it feels like.
But we also both know very well how when something like this comes out it affects more than just the husband and wife
Just our two cents
