    I wonder how far back the data goes? Or is it current site users.

    The article doesn't say but it if the hackers really got in, I don't see why they wouldn't have it all.

    So true. Constant battle to build new firewalls to stay one step ahead.

    I guess. The lesson here is if you join that type of site. Be prepared for the consequences if you are found out.

    And if they all had, there would be no point in hacking the site.

    Well it didn't take Ashley Madison for me to wonder who gets hacked next. However it does add another angle to it because of the chance to expose millions of cheaters...lawyers are going to make millions and families may get broken up . . . they may have been on the path to breaking up anyways if they went on a site specifically to have an affair but this is still more than credit fraud or identify theft.

    Honestly I don't understand how the site is so popular. Everyone knows it's to cheat So in would figure it would be ripe for people to infiltrate and catch people and I don't just mean individuals I also mean private investigator companies and reality TV shows.

    Fortunately most hackers are shut-ins like me who are too petrified by social anxieties, apathy, and general malaise to actually do anything with the info they've stolen. :p

    I guess I grew up in an era where it was madness to post your real name/details on the internet, for this very reason. By 1999, I'd been online for nearly a decade and knew at least a couple of people who had had difficulties because they were recognized. That's why I never, ever skype/sext/kik/etc, don't post identifying photos, use multi-level email filtering, browse only while Tor is running, obscure my accent, type only while wearing gloves/condom/ski mask, and do all that I can to ensure that no one knows that I am a married, 48 year-old, ambi-sexual schoolteacher from Slow Rapids, Utah named Candace Eppinheimer. My mother, Maureen (nee Cronin) would die of shame if she discovered what I get up to online. She certainly wouldn't send me a birthday card this August 13th, or forward mail from my Alumni associations at Falwell Elementary, Lamon Middle, Or Jerry High schools.

    I would be mortified if anyone knew about my online persona. I really would.

    ***

    In truth, I think that it makes the most sense to keep things at arms' length while online. I tend to use prepaid cards bought with cash whenever possible, whether for naughty business or normal activity. I create multiple email facades and, strive to enjoy myself without exposure. Although I am in a nominally open relationship, neither my wife nor I have ever acted on the option. We have things too precious to lose.
