It was founded in 2002 by Darren Morgenstern, with the slogan: "Life is short.
Have an affair." The company received attention on July 15, 2015, after hackers stole all of its customer data—including emails, names, home addresses, sexual fantasies and credit card information—and threatened to post all the data online if Ashley Madison and fellow Avid Life Media site Established were not permanently closed.
I think im close to setting up my first affair on this site but ive been thinking that for a while now.
On things seemed to happen a bit quicker but im not giving up yet as I guess not all sites can be that good.
The release included data from customers who had earlier paid a fee to Ashley Madison to allegedly have their data deleted.
However, with up to 50 percent of all marriages ending in divorce, that's not exactly the case anymore—and online dating platforms are well aware of this fact.By July 22, the first set of customer names were released by hackers, with all of the user data released on August 18, 2015.More data (including some of the CEO's emails) was released on August 20, 2015.That said, need to warn you: the following slides do contain some racy and sexual content.So far, though, it isn't easy to find the exposed cheaters online.I didn't respond to emails or look at everyone's private photos. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy the site was to use.
