Just days after we told you all about Ashley Madison, boy have we got news for you!
Apparently hackers, who call themselves “The Impact Team,” have found their way into Ashley Madison’s database of 37,000,000 users and threatened the company to expose its viewers profiles, e-mail exchanges, addresses, phone numbers, credit card information and more importantly NUDE photos and fantasies shared if the site isn’t deleted and shut down.
The scary thing about this is that people take these nude photos that are shared on websites like this and use it for pornography websites, and other sites and it is nearly impossible to get it removed once it’s been put up. It’s never fun when your employer sees your face on their porn site at night while they’re masturbating, and you don’t even know you’re on it!
“The Impact Team” also threatened another website, www.EstablishedMen.com owned by Avid Life Media, the same people who created Ashley Madison. EstablishedMen.com is a dating website that focuses on connecting established men with young beautiful women. Sounds like a sex trafficking site if you ask me, or just a place for gold digging women to take advantage of whomever and whatever they can.
This all started when users were being charged $19 to delete their accounts from AshleyMadison.com, Avid Life Media lied when it told it’s users about a $19 dollar “full delete” feature, promising that it would delete all data personal data from their server. This includes all e-mail exchanges, including photos and kinky fantasies along with the names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mails and credit cards of the individuals who sent them!
Not only should it not cost anything to delete an account, but the information isn’t even fully removable once it’s been entered!
Well, the feature is basically bogus, and it was just a way for ALM to make more money off it’s users. The Impact Team became furious at this dishonest gesture, hacked the system and wreaked havoc.
As of now AshleyMadison.com says they have been able to contain all personal information of its users and has shut down the ability for the hackers to get any further than they already have. However, there is speculation that the personal information for up to 2,500 people has already been exposed.
Ashley Madison is a large paid dating website that generates hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. It was even planning on an initial public offering of over 2 million dollars until this happened. They won’t be offering anything except FREE memberships at this point.
