LONDON — They said they’d post the information – and they did.
Customer data stolen by hackers from cheating website Ashley Madison was posted online Tuesday.
The online dating site for people interested in cheating on their significant others was hacked about a month ago by a group calling itself The Impact Team.
They promised that they would release information gained from the breach, including customers’ credit card information and “secret sexual fantasies” if the site was not shut down.
Some of that data was posted on the so-called “dark web” on Tuesday.
The dark web can only be viewed with a special browser and isn’t searchable using Google or most common search engines. As promised, the information that was posted included customer names and credit card numbers.
