Customer data stolen from Noel Biderman’s website Ashley Madison, the dating for married people who wish to cheat on their spouse, promoting the tagline, “Life is short, have an affair, ” has reportedly been published on the dark web.

The hackers called the Impact Team, last month said they had managed to steal sensitive customer information of the site’s users, including those who had previously “delete” their accounts.

The hackers threatened to reveal its data unless the website was taken down. On Tuesday they reportedly did it on the dark web, meaning it is accessible only via encrypted browsers.

Technology website WIRED has it all. According to WIRED the information was posted using an Onion address accessible only through the Tor browser.

WIRED said the files appear to include account details and log-ins for some 32 million users, touted as the premier site for married individuals seeking partners for affairs. Seven years worth of credit card and other payment transaction details are also part of the dump, going back to 2007.

The data, which amounts to millions of payment transactions, includes names, street address, email address and amount paid, but not credit card numbers; instead it includes four digits for each transaction that may be the last four digits of the credit card or simply a transaction ID unique to each charge. AshleyMadison.com claimed to have nearly 40 million users at the time of the breach about a month ago, all apparently in the market for clandestine hookups.

An English Parliamentarian,  Vatican workers, American officials and at least one TV reality star — are among those being outed for looking for love in all the wrong places, according to stolen data posted online from the cheaters’ site Ashley Madison.

Canada-based Avid Life Media, the company behind Ashley Madison which operates in more than 50 countries and has 37 million users, said In a statement,  “now learned that the individual or individuals responsible for this attack claim to have released more of the stolen data”.

The company describing the hack as “an act of criminality”, the company said it was fully cooperating with law enforcement to find the hackers.
“The criminals, involved in this act have appointed themselves as the moral judge, juror, and executioner, seeing fit to impose a personal notion of virtue on all of society. We will not sit idly by and allow these thieves to force their personal ideology on citizens around the world, ” the statement said.
