A group of hackers stole the data from a website specializing in finding partners for married people (Ashley Madison) and released it online: more than 30 m users' names, addresses and personal details, along with GPS co-ordinates and sexual preferences.
The hackers' motives are unclear. In their statement they denounce the "fraud, deceit and stupidity" of both Ashley Madison's parent company, Avid Life Media, and the site's users.
Avid Life Media has called this an act of cyber-terrorism. The company announced that it is currently working with law enforcement agencies and that any and all parties responsible for this act of cyber–terrorism will be held responsible. The company also declared that by using the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, it has successfully removed the posts related to this incident as well as all Personally Identifiable Information about Ashley Madison’s users published online.
