Yesterday, on August 19th, a hacker group called The Impact Team publicly released an enormous 9.7 GB download of data from Ashley Madison’s servers.
As has been mentioned throughout the media, the Ashley Madison hack released private information about Ashley Madison members, including names, addresses, phone numbers, and even information like highly private sexual fantasies.
Private information on as many as 37 million Ashley Madison users went public.
As the repercussions of the hack develop, many people are wondering how the hack may affect them personally and if there are proactive steps they can take to protect their reputations.
Make no mistake about it – the Ashley Madison hack DOES POSE a threat to any person whose information was publicly released yesterday.
Just today, headlines broke with the reality TV star Josh Duggar being found as one of the first celebrity users of Ashley Madison. At the same time, The Impact Team continues to release more private data, impacting the lives and reputations of even more people.
The real danger is this: anyone can turn the private information that was publicly released in the hack into a nice, browsable format with a graphical interface – the exact type of information that climbs Google rankings.
This means that Ashley Madison information will quickly be EVEN MORE accessible to the public and to friends and family.
