“Today, I can confirm that Avid Life Media is offering a $500, 000 Canadian (roughly $380, 000 U.S.) reward to anyone providing information that leads to the identification, arrest, and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for the leak of the Ashley Madison database, ” said Toronto Police Department staff superintendent Bryce Evans in a press conference held at the Toronto Police Headquarter.

Avid Life Media—the parent company of AshleyMadison.com—confirmed that they are offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the hackers who leaked their clients’ database.

Evans salling this a “wake-up call” to the hackers, and he also made a point to appeal to hackers in general for help.

“To the hacking community, who engage in discussions on the dark web, and who no doubt have information that could assist in this investigation, we are also appealing to you to do the right thing, to acknowledge that this is a unique situation that has caused enormous social and economic fallout. You know the Impact Team has crossed the line. Do the right thing, and reach out to us, ” Evans said.

Evans claimed that the police are investigating two claims of suicides stemming from the release of the information, but so far those claims remain unconfirmed.

Unfortunately, less than 1% of hackers are ever caught.
