Hackers have had a serious problem with the cheating site "AshleyMadison.com" that encourages married men and women to have affairs with its slogan: Life is short, have an affair. And right off the bat, you have to ask: What makes a company promote the destruction of people's lives so willingly by encouraging them to break their vows of marriage which they took legally and spiritually and are bound by them? Also you have to ask who is the worst offender of the two and deserves the most punishment, the devil who does the tempting, the influencing and the facilitating, or the person who walks through the door of lust and actually commits adultery? And since in this case the website Ashleymadison.com is playing the devil, would you agree with the Hackers, "Impact Team", actions in trying to expose the information of the adulterers? The hackers -- or hacker, perhaps -- appear to be upset over the company's "full delete" service, which promises to completely erase a user's profile, and all associated data, for a $19 fee. "Full Delete netted [Avid Life Media] who owns Ashleymadison.com, $1.7 million in revenue in 2014. It's also a complete lie," the hackers were quoted as saying in a manifesto published by Krebs. "Users almost always pay with credit card; their purchase details are not removed as promised, and include real names and address, which is of course the most important information the users want removed."This is what you must know about Ashleymadison.com and their agreement with their customers that is part of why the Hackers are upset:
1. If Ashley Madison goes bankrupt, it can sell your data.
2. Users must give Ashley Madison accurate personal information.
3. There's no guarantee Ashley Madison can protect that information.
4. Ashley Madison might share your secrets with others.

And so on this Tuesday, Aug.18, 2015, the Hackers have made good on their threats to release the information of the users of that site. And according to CNN, Hackers who hit cheaters' dating site, Ashley Madison, published stolen customer data, experts said Tuesday. And supposedly, the data has been posted on the "Dark Web", and that is the dark side of the internet, where Google and Bing dare not to venture or are unable to enter this domain. And supposedly, for this part of the internet to be viewed, it requires a very special T.O.R. Browser, and that is according to Cybersecurity expert from Norway, Per Thorsheim. Also according to him, the information that was released included customer names and credit card number, as well the amount of money they spent along with their fantasies. "This event is not an act of hacktivism, it is an act of criminality. It is an illegal action against the individual members of AshleyMadison.com," the site said. "The criminal, or criminals, involved in this act have appointed themselves as the moral judge, jury, and executioner, seeing fit to impose a personal notion of virtue on all of society." Also stated the spokesperson for the site.
Cybersecurity expert from Norway, Per Thorsheim also said that he could not confirm whether more personal information, such as the sexual fantasies and addresses of customers, was included in the data dump. He said a massive amount of data is included in the posting. Even when compressed it came to 9.7 gigabytes of data.
The hackers posted a statement Tuesday under the headline "Time's Up!" announcing the posting of the data and giving directions to view the data.
"Avid Life Media has failed to take down Ashley Madison," said the statement. "We have explained the fraud, deceit, and stupidity of ALM and their members. Now everyone gets to see their data."
The hackers mocked the site and the customer base, saying that 90% to 95% of the users were male.
"Find someone you know in here? Keep in mind the site is a scam with thousands of fake female profiles," said the post. "Chances are your man signed up on the world's biggest affair site, but never had one. He just tried to. If that distinction matters."
