Hackers have broken into AshleyMadison.com -- the website that lets people arrange extramarital affairs.

A group that calls itself "The Impact Team” claims it has possession of Ashley Madison's client database.

It's threatening to expose those clients, and their sexual secrets, unless the web site is taken down permanently.

The hackers also claim that Ashley Madison is lying when it promises to permanently erase any client's record for $19.

Ashley Madison’s slogan is “Life is short. Have an affair.” The web site boasts more than 37.5 million users.

    I don’t have any sympathy for these “clients”. Put your name out there, your credit card information, etc., to cheat on your spouse? I think it’s funny!!!

    My question is this…how would they be exposed to their significant others? Did they provide their wife/husband name and phone # as a contact in the database? If so, then hell hath no fury….

    I HOPE the hackers expose every one of the users. People who cheat don’t deserve to be in relationships. Their partners deserve to know what a scumbag their partners are.

    New song lyrics…..

    “Lookin for some one other than my wife”
    “It got me busted”
    “Guess I should thought twice”
