Breach, Data Security

Impact Team releases another dump of Ashley Madison data


The hackers behind the Ashley Madison breach have reportedly dumped a lot more data online.

“Hey Noel, you can admit it's real now,” reads a message posted – along with 20GB of data – to the same dark web site with the same PGP key used in the previous data dump, Motherboard reported.

Noel Biderman is CEO of Ashley Madison's parent company Avid Life Media.

This data dump may focus on corporate information and Biderman's email rather than customer data, Motherboard said, adding that it is now going through the data.

On Wednesday, ALM said on, “No current or past members' full credit card numbers were stolen from Avid Life Media. Any statements to the contrary are false. Avid Life Media has never stored members' full credit card numbers.”

Ashley Madison did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
