The hacker group was demanding that Avid Life Media, owner of Ashley Madison, as well as two other sites; Cougar Life and Established Men was to be taken offline or else the data would be released. Avid Life Media confirmed the leak, but kept the site online. Gizmodo have confirmed the availability of the dump, which includes email addresses, credit card transactions and profiles.

 

If you've ever use the site in the past, best to either fess up and get some flowers on the way home, or lawyer up.
