Will the AshleyMadison.com data dump lead to divorces in Mississippi?
August 20, 2015 Leave a comment
AshleyMadison.com is a website designed for married people to find a person with which to have an affair. Their slogan is “Life is short. Have an affair.” The bottom of their site contains what appear to be little awards claiming “Trusted Security Award” and “100% Discrete Service.” Not so.
By now you have probably heard about the AshleyMadison.com (AM) data dump. This story began back on July 15 when online security expert Brian Krebs reported that a group of hackers named the Impact Team had compromised the databases and proprietary electronic information of AM, its parent company Avid Life media and related sites Cougar Life and Established Men.
A little over a month later on August 18 the data dump started showing up around the web. Various sites have popped up where you can search the database by email address including this one. According to Joseph Cox at Motherboard, the Impact Group as now dumped another set of data that is roughly twice the size of the first dump.
The two AM data dumps come on the heals of yet another data dump at adult hookup site AdultFriendFinder.com a few months back. Cheaters beware.
So how long will it be before the first client walks into a lawyer’s office in Mississippi asking for a divorce based on the AshleyMadison or AdultFriendFinder data dumps? If it hasn’t already happened, it won’t be long.
