Bad news: the very trustworthy-looking girl with her finger pressed to her lips is in fact not keeping your secrets safe.
If you're a member of AshleyMadison, the dating site that facilitates extramarital affairs, 1) Why...? and 2) You might want to come clean, because your information may currently be in the hands of hackers ready to expose your philandering ways to the world. Whoops!
The site, which boasts the very inspiring slogan "Life Is Short. Have An Affair," was reportedly hacked on Sunday by a hacker (or group of hackers) that goes by "The Impact Team," which may be the least-threatening hacker-group name ever. According to security blog KrebsonSecurity, the group reportedly invaded Avid Life Media -- the firm that owns AshleyMadison, Cougar Life, and Established Men -- and stole data including users' profiles, financial records, and other proprietary information. ALM Chief Executive Noel Biderman confirmed that hack to the blog on Sunday night, saying the company was working to recover the stolen data.
