Archive for the ‘Ashley Madison Reviews’ category

Ashley Madison is an adult entertainment website that brings interesting contacts and just more excitement in your life. When you suspect that an email you’ve received is a scam, you just forward it to the me@ , where the bot will reply to the scammers. TLC’s Sex, Lies and Online Affairs features the people who are using the site to cheat on their partners Continue – and the devastated spouses who have busted their loved-ones for playing away from home. But the privately-held company, which also owns dating sites CougarLife and EstablishedMen, won’t say who its other investors are. A good example of how we’ve changed our thinking and approach to privacy and security is reflected in being awarded the Privacy by Design certification from Ryerson’s Privacy and Big Data Institute.

In this phishing campaign, the spam email contains attachments with links that redirect to fake adult dating sites. It also touts that it is the leading dating service for discreet” sexual encounters for married people. While it might seem a bit sexist, the cost of registering an account on Ashley Madison depends on your gender. To pay for those, you buy credits in advance and then use those to pay for the messages you’ve sent (once again, the platform is 100% free for women, only men pay to message other users).

This dating site has 37 million users and is owned by Avid Life Media. The emails reveal that Biderman cheated on his wife and attempted to engage in adultery with at least three separate women. Many philanderers using Ashley Madison’s services, who presumably took extraordinary steps to hide affairs from their partners, appear to have missed that memo. The main extortion content of the email is a threat to expose the unfaithful affairs those victims were having with a fellow user on the Ashley Madison platform.

We hope that Avid Life Media will follow-up in the coming days with some sort of help to their userbase and a formal apology, rather than try to sweep it under the rug … P.S. To Ashley Madison’s Development Team: You should be embarrased sic for your train wreck of a database (and obviously security), not sanitizing your phone numbers to your database is completely amateur, it’s as if the entire site was made by Comp Sci 1XX students. Ownership of a username cannot be verified like an email address can be. In order to protect the privacy of users, Ashley Madison usernames are not searchable either by the public or by members who verify their email address.
