This week’s podcast looks at the hack on the Ashley Madison website. Ashley Madison declares on its home page that “Life is short. Have an affair.” The home page goes on to state that “Ashley Madison is the world’s leading married dating service for discreet encounters.” The site also boasts “over 38,050,000 anonymous members!”
The site was hacked with a group called The Impact Team claiming responsibility for the attack. The Impact Team threatened to release customer information publicly unless the Ashley Madison site and another site, Established Men, are shut down on the Internet. What are the implications for those on the site and for the internet as a whole? Jonathan and Eric look at this case and at earlier cases to highlight some of the issues.
