Unfaithful spouses in panic after hacking of adultery website Ashley Madison

The 7th Commandment: Thou shall not commit adultery.

Adultery is a sin, so are acts that cooperate in adultery by enabling adultery and protecting adulterers, an example of which is a website with the oh-so-genteel WASPy name, Ashley Madison.

Ashley Madison is a Canadian-based online “dating service” for “people who are already in a relationship,” i.e., adulterers. Its slogan is “Life is short. Have an affair” — a variant of satanist Aleister Crowley’s motto “Do as thou will.”

Launched in 2001, the site is ranked #18 among “adult” sites, with more than 124 million visits a month, according to web analytics provider SimilarWeb. In October, 2013, Alexa gave the site a ranking of 3,112.

But Ashley Madison’s users are now in a panic because the adultery site had been hacked and its “sensitive” data breached.

Kevin Roose reports for Fusion that Ashley Madison was the target of a huge hack last weekend, and hackers are threatening to reveal data related to the accounts of millions of members, most of whom are in the U.S. and Canada.

The hack, which was reported by Krebs on Security, appears to have breached “sensitive internal data” from Avid Life Media, Ashley Madison’s Toronto-based parent company. The hacker(s) stole “maps of internal company servers, employee network account information, company bank account data and salary information,” as well as information relating to 40 million users of Ashley Madison and its sister sites, Cougar Life and Established Men. Some of Ashley Madison account data has already been published online.

In a message posted online, the “Impact Team” took credit for the hack, and threatens to publish more information every day until its demands — a complete and permanent takedown of Ashley Madison and Established Men — are met.

Impact Team writes:

“We’ve got the complete set of profiles in our DB dumps, and we’ll release them soon if Ashley Madison stays online. And with over 37 million members, mostly from the US and Canada, a significant percentage of the population is about to have a very bad day, including many rich and powerful people.”

message from Impact Team to adultery sites via Krebs on Security

Ashley Madison, which drew national attention for its provocative ads, has become the largest online matchmaking site designed to facilitate infidelity. It’s safe to say that the vast majority of those users expected their profiles to remain secure and anonymous, and would be horrified if their names and other account details came to light.

The hacker (or hackers) appear to have been angered by a premium feature on Ashley Madison called “Full Delete,” which is advertised as a way to “remove all traces of your usage for only $19.” The Impact Team accused Ashley Madison of holding on to certain customer details even after a “Full Delete” was purchased, such as their names and addresses.

Noel Biderman, Ashley Madison’s CEO, confirmed the hack to Krebs on Security. He called the hack “a criminal act,” and said that the company was “working diligently and feverishly” to remove its customers’ extremely sensitive data from public view.

Tech blogger Robert Scoble reminds Ashley Madison that in 2014, the adultery enabling website had sent an email to reporters and bloggers touting itself as “the last truly secure space on the Internet.”

Noel Biderman

According to Wikipedia, Noel Biderman is the CEO of both Ashley Madison and its parent company, Avid Life Media. He had served as a judge for the Miss Tiger Woods mistress pageant on The Howard Stern Show, a contest sponsored by Ashley Madison. In an interview with the “A Current Affair” program in Australia, Biderman said “I would be devastated” if he found out his own wife was accessing his adultery site.

Biderman is Jewish.

From an article on Jews in the American porn industry, by Nathan Abrams (a Jew), in Jewish Quarterly (Winter 2004):

“there’s no getting away from the fact that secular Jews have played (and still continue to play) a disproportionate role throughout the adult film industry in America. Jewish involvement in pornography has a long history in the United States, as Jews have helped to transform a fringe subculture into what has become a primary constituent of Americana…. Though Jews make up only two per cent of the American population, they have been prominent in pornography [as both makers and performers]…. Jews accounted for most of the leading male performers as well as a sizeable number of female stars in porn movies of the 1970s and ‘80s…. Jewish involvement in the X-rated industry can be seen as a proverbial two fingers to the entire WASP establishment in America. Some porn stars viewed themselves as frontline fighters in the spiritual battle between Christian America and secular humanism…. Jewish X-rated actors often brag about their ‘joy in being anarchic, sexual gadflies to the puritanical beast’. Jewish involvement in porn, by this argument, is the result of an atavistic hatred of Christian authority: they are trying to weaken the dominant culture in America by moral subversion…. Al Goldstein, the publisher of Screw, said (on lukeford.net), ‘The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don’t believe in authoritarianism.’ Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture…. Just as Jews have been disproportionately represented in radical [political] movements over the years, so they are also disproportionately represented in the porn industry.”

update (July 22, 2015):

CBS Boston reports that yesterday, the hackers exposed the personal details of two Ashley Madison subscribers. One man is from Canada – the other from Brockton, MA. Among the data released about the Brockton client: His user ID is “Heavy73″; he listed himself as “married/attached”; he joined the site the day after Valentine’s Day, 2014; he likes “cuddling & hugging” and is into “discretion & secrecy”.

UPDATE (Aug. 19, 2015):

Yesterday, the hackers made good on their promise by posting a data dump of 9.7 gigabytes to the dark web using an Onion address accessible only through the Tor browser. The files appear to include account details and log-ins for some 32 million users of Ashley Madison, including 7 years worth of credit card and other payment transaction details of names, street address, email address and amount paid, but not credit card numbers. The email addresses include some 15,000 .mil or .gov addresses. One email appears to belong to former UK prime minister Tony Blair, although anyone conceivably can get an email address with the words “tony blair” in it.

  2. Putting any thing and I mean any thing on the internet is worse than putting an advertisement in the local newspaper. The internet is called the World Wide Web for a reason. Once it has been typed into the computer it is always there no matter what. I feel sorry for those whose information has been compromised but more importantly I pray for them because obviously there is something amiss in their lives or they would not have been on this site in the first place.

  6. Lost Jews do lots of damage to the planet. Disconnected from their faith and its moral directives, they embrace “isms”, such as Marxism, communism, socialism, atheism, capitalism, and paganism. Promoting immorality is part of the general plan of gradually implementing the communist/NWO takeover of our planet.

    Actually they won’t: according to the Bible, death is what they deserve. …Followed by Hell.

  8. Can we ask these hackers to PLEASE go after the emails of this lawless administration and the Benghazi emails of hilary? The secret plans of soros, as well. (Lack of capitals demonstrating that they have acted in such way that they do not deserve their names to be capitalized – not a typing error.)

  10. Al Goldstein for his derogatory comments should be grateful that there
    is no longer an Inquistion. However, I wonder if he thinks that Islam is not
    authoritarian. I doubt if he has the nerve to make derogatory comments
    about Mohammed.

  11. I cannot believe how many people cheat on their spouses, it truly is mind-boggling. These kinds of trashy services make it easy, and that is sad. Cheating destroys family bonds and trust, for generations. But now a lot of,men and women might literally get caught with their pants down. Maybe this will make a would-be cheater think twice.

  13. I understand that facebook has been a favorite for those who would like to hook up with an old flame too. It is credited with the destruction of countless marriages. Even though we know that it is because of what’s in the heart of those who do these things.
    And Jews being involved in this is no surprise. For the most part they reject the true God for idols still. Some day soon they will look on Him whom they have pierced and then will bow their knee.

      • That is also what I read. However, I believe in the rules to live by there is something along the lines of not leading others astray. Kinda like the driver of a getaway car, they are accessaries to the crime, even though they did not actually commit the crime. So it is probably a good idea not to be a part of something things even though they be legal.

  14. The really shocking thing is that there are 37 million participants to the Ashley Madison site–that just seems astronomical! Talk about moral decay in the Northern Hemisphere. It is a sad statement on our current society. It really makes the 1950’s look good.

    Auntie Lulu: I can’t get past the number of 37 million participants! If they play they will pay! I wonder why they even bother to get married! I think a cheating heart is going to cheat and modern technology just makes it easier. With the invention of the internet; cheating, porn and all the other depraved options are just a click a way. We have a morally unhealthy world and it’s becoming worse. It really is to glorify sin and disregard God. In our home, my husband is free to access my accounts at anytime, and I can do the same with his accounts; yet we don’t ever do that, because there is trust and honor. I’ve never been in his wallet and he has never been into my purse, even though we have that option with each other too. Mutual trust has to be in a relationship, or else it often ends up, like the 37 million on the adultery site. It’s just so ugly, filthy and the death of morals. I often wonder if God cries when he looks down on this world….. Leeann : (

    Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this undeniable indictment of secular Jews in western society. I know that most people expect me to reflexively leap to the defense of Jews, but this is not so. I pray for the children of Jacob, but I do not automatically trust them, any more than I would automatically trust a fellow white man of Irish descent. We all need to be judged by the “content of our character.” (Dr. MLK)

    • Thank you, TD. It took a lot for me to broach this subject, as we’ve all been conditioned or intimidated by the ADL that any criticism of Jews is being “anti-Semitic,” the equivalent of the Nazis’ Holocaust. No group is a sacred cow, beyond legitimate and warranted criticism.

    • Of course all of this depends on how you define adultery. My ex-sister-in-law defines adultery has having an intimate relationship with more than one person at a time. As long as you are only having an intimate relationship with just one person at a time, you are not commiting adultery, regardless of how many partners you have during your life. Yes, she had numerous affairs when she was married to my brother, and has had numerous relationships since their divorce but he would take her back in a heartbeat! Of course, I rate this definition of adultery right up there with the definition to justify abortion as life beginning when the baby takes it first breath. How much more evil and satanic can this country get?

  21. Noel Biderman is the poster pimp of a long winded, historical legacy. Destabilize other people’s culture then monetize the chaos. He has helped make the world, less of a better place while getting rich. He is the worst of all home wreckers and belongs in a dress, in jail cell, with a jealous husband doing life for finding his wife with another man.
