Ashley Madison hack reveals most “women” on the site are fake
I’ve been reading about the hacker group “Impact Team” ‘s attack on the Ashley Madison website, after the CEO of Avid Life Media, Noel Biderman, boasted repeatedly about the site’s security. The Canadian company’s tagline for the website is “Life is short. Have an affair.”
- Twenty percent of the population of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (the capital of Canada) is registered on AshleyMadison.com.
- At least 15,000 emails registered on the site belong to United States government employees at a variety of agencies, including the Pentagon, the Veteran’s Administration, and the White House.
But what is very interesting is that most of the “women” registered on AshleyMadison.com are fake. They were created by Avid Life Media employees, and they have little or no user activity.
So of all those hundreds of thousands of men who were paying for AshleyMadison.com membership so they could cheat on their wives, most of them never actually got to have an affair with a woman on the site, because the women on the site weren’t real.
I think that’s very funny.
