This week, news broke of the Ashley Madison hack. Ashley Madison, the leading website for those looking to engage in an extramarital affair, encourages members with the slogan “Life is short, have an affair”. As a result of this invasive breach, members and the public are questioning what Ashley Madison’s data means for the modern day couple.
Experts estimate that tens of millions of Americans and Canadians were affected by this leak and personal information including but not limited to telephone numbers, geographic locations, payment details, and personal preferences have been left on the web via numerous other websites which provide information that the hackers acquired. Ashley Madison was likely targeted because unlike other dating sites, users are required to pay a fee should they want all of their personal information deleted. If no fee is paid by the member, their information remains stored in an online database.
While it may seem startling that so many people are intrigued in engaging in an extramarital affair, experts further warn that many of these so- called users, may be fake. Because Ashley Madison does not require users to confirm their e-mail with their profile by clicking a link sent to the provided e-mail, users are left with the option of simply fabricating information about themselves. If the highest estimated number of men were in fact registered to Ashley Madison, it would equate to nearly 15% of the married population, which seems rather unlikely.
