The Ashley Madison cheating website has been hacked by “an unauthorized party,” the company said. The Impact Team hackers reportedly then posted large amounts of data from the hookup site online, potentially affecting about 37 million unfaithful partners.
“We were recently made aware of an attempt by an unauthorized party to gain access to our systems,” AVID LIFE media Inc., which owns the site, said in a statement.
The company added that they have been able “to secure our sites, and close the unauthorized access points.”
“We are working with law enforcement agencies, which are investigating this criminal act. Any and all parties responsible for this act of cyber–terrorism will be held responsible.”
