Ashley Madison Hack: Lawyer Wants Ashley Madison’s Member Information Leaked For Reasons That Are Catchy
Ashley Madison is a Canadian-based online dating service and social networking service marketed to people who are married or in a committed relationship. The company received significant attention on July 15, 2015, after hackers stole all of its customer data—including names, addresses, sexual fantasies and credit card information—and threatened to post all the data online if Ashley Madison was not permanently closed.
From the time it was exposed last month, looks like the Ashley Madison has come to a halt. The hackers had last month leaked the names of two Ashley Madison users along with a number of links claiming to have thousands of Ashley Madison user names. This misleading information only made people get directed to old porn user email lists or surveys or something similar to that.
However, the most recent viral reports on the Ashley Madison hacking that includes the 87-page report explains in detail as to how the site for fraudsters were able to get so many users in the first place, exposing themselves to hacking.
A recently written article by Jason Levoy, a lawyer titled ‘Why This Divorce Attorney Wants Ashley Madison’s Member Information Leaked (And It’s Not What You Think)’ is drawing attention as it talks about the Ashley Madison hacking. He has written about keeping a record of the forum comments on the Ashley Madison hacking and taking up the matter with those who suppose that many of the divorce lawyers were fretting impatiently on the release of the 38 millions names in the hacking, as reported by the Huffington Post.
The site has a policy of not deleting users’ personal information including real names, addresses, search history and credit card details, many users feared being publicly shamed. Hence, it was expected that with the leak of 38 million cheater names online, it would mean that millions of these people would be looking out divorce lawyers to assist them in ending their marriages. This would also mean that those divorce lawyers could make benefits from all the of attorney fees earned through mediation proceedings and over the delayed argument of dividing the flatware.
However, the reason why Levoy wants the Ashley Madison data to be uncovered looks to be more satisfactory than many other money makers.
The reasons why he wants the Ashley Madison data to be leaked as mentioned in the article perhaps looks to be more like that of counseling the couples.
Firstly, once the Ashley Madison data is exposed, it would compel the couples to talk about it to each other as to why the cheating took place in the first instance. Without blaming each other, a husband and wife could talk about the factors and shortcomings of the union that made them think that he or she is being disregarded or some other reason that caused the cheating partner to think that joining Ashley Madison would be a good option.
Secondly, those involved would be brought to a situation where they would have to choose, if the Ashley Madison user information is exposed. Either second chances and forgiveness would be given, or either a denial or a break up would happen. Whatever be the outcome, the cheater would be exposed who mostly wants to be caught subconsciously and real feelings would have to come out in the open.
