The compromise comes less than two months after intruders stole and leaked online user data on millions of accounts from hookup site Adult Friend Finder.In a long manifesto posted alongside the stolen ALM data, The Impact Team said it decided to publish the information in response to alleged lies ALM told its customers about a service that allows members to completely erase their profile information for a fee.ALM claims Ashley Madison has more than 33 million members, spread across 46 countries — although the proportion of active profiles is unclear. The data dump was made on 11/07/15 — so any accounts created after that point wouldn’t be included.The hackers themselves accused the site of scamming users with “thousands” of fake female profiles. Responding to news of the latest data dump in a statement, ALM said it’s investigating into the original hack is still ongoing.When news of the hack broke earlier this summer, Thorsheim also pointed out that Ashley Madison did not verify email addresses of users — so the presence of an email address within the data dump can’t be used to identify a genuine user of the site.Security researcher Graham Cluley reiterated this point today, writing on his blog: “I could have created an account at Ashley Madison with the address of [email protected], but it wouldn’t have meant that Obama was a user of the site.” So while security site CSO is reporting that the data dump includes some 15,000 email accounts that use a (US military) or email address — and claims the data also contains around 100 UK government email addresses — it’s not necessarily saying very much, given the lack of an email verification process.According to the hackers, although the “full delete” feature that Ashley Madison advertises promises “removal of site usage history and personally identifiable information from the site,” users’ purchase details — including real name and address — aren’t actually scrubbed. It’s also a complete lie,” the hacking group wrote.
