A second trove of hacked Ashley Madison data hits the dark web
As predicted, The Impact Team, the group of hackers responsible for hacking the online adultery website, Ashley Madison yesterday leaked another 20GB of stolen data on the Dark Web.
The Impact Team, which had made public approximately 10GB data on Wednesday, yesterday released a fresh 20 gigabytes of compressed data, doubling their first leak.
The second leak contains data and emails pertaining to the upper echelons of Avid Life Media, the owner of Ashley Madison. Files inside the second dump appear to contain correspondence of Noel Biderman, CEO of Avid Life Media, the parent company of Ashley Madison and its sister sites such as EstablishedMen.com.
The leaks contain a file titled “noel.biderman.mail.7z,” which has a special message for Noel Biderman, owner of ALM and Ahsley Madison, saying “Hey Noel, you can admit it’s real now.” Ashely Madison honchos have been crying hoarse that the leaks made public by The Impact Team is fake. This message by Impact Team is clearly directed against them.
“The message is likely a response to assertions made by the company’s former CTO this week,” Wired’s Kim Zetter reports, “who tried hard to convince reporters after the first leak occurred that the data dump was fake.”
Who knows what will be found in the latest dump of data, but it’s safe to say that ALM has a serious problem on its hands. We at, Techworm are convinced that there are more leaks coming form the hackers.
