More Ashley Madison data leaked

0 comments

A new tranche of data hacked from cheating Web site Ashley Madison has been leaked.
The new files appear to be e-mails, internal documents and source code, indicating that Team Impact did in fact hack Ashley Madison as it claims.

Earlier this week, the hacking group released a massive file containing names, e-mail addresses, login information and payment data for some of the site’s 32-million users.

The hacking group, which dubs itself Team Impact, claims to have hacked the site just over one month ago, threatening to release information if the site failed to shut down.

Tuesday’s data leak was 30 days after the data breach.

This is the first data breach and subsequent leak of this type: where users may not necessarily lose money, but could be caught out doing something they thought was secret.
