More fallout from Ashley Madison breach

0 comments

Fallout from the Ashley Madison data breach continues into the second week since hackers released details of subscribers to the cheating service.
Reports have come from Canada that at least two Ashley Madison clients committed suicide after their personal details were posted online.

And now the web site’s owner, Avid Life Media, has posted a reward of $500 000.00 (Canadian dollars) for information leading to the arrest of the hackers.

The company could find itself out of pocket for more than the reward money, however, as outed users start opening lawsuits.

First out of the blocks are two Canadian law firms that have filed a $578-million class-action lawsuit against Avid Life Media.
The data of Ashley Madison subscribers was released last week Tuesday, 30 days after a hacker group calling itself Team Impact said it had breached the site and demanded that it shut down.
