Ashley Madison’s Cyber Attack:
As most of you may have heard by now, Ashley Madison was recently the victim of a major cyber attack that ruined the company’s plans to increase their investment potential in the UK.
You can read more about the financial aspects of the story by reading the CNBC website, or by clicking here.
According to Ashley Madison’s statistics, Australians don’t fall anywhere near the world’s top cheaters and, as such, some of you may not be aware of what the company is, or what it offers its clients:
Ashley Madison is an online dating website that offers its members the opportunity to have affairs with others, without the risk of being caught by their partners. Members can sign up with fake names and contact details, engage in communications with each other, send photographs (yep, even nudies) and organise to “meet for dinner”… if you know what we mean. The company’s slogan is, “Life is short. Have an affair.”
Hackers breached the globally renowned infidelity website and have since threatened to release the real names, photos, credit card details and other personal information of its 37 million members, unless the site permanently shuts itself down – now, that’s one hell of a threat!
The company released a list of the world’s top “cheating countries and cities,” which we’ve listed here for your enjoyment… considering we’re not on it:
- United States (Washington)
- Greece (Athens)
- Japan (Tokyo)
- Chile (Santiago)
- Germany (Berlin)
- Sweden (Stockholm)
- Finland (Helsinki)
- Norway (Oslo)
- Netherlands (Amsterdam)
- Mexico (Mexico City)
- Italy (Rome)
- Spain (Madrid)
- France (Paris)
Whilst Ashley Madison was the victim of an incredibly damaging cyber attack and may now have lost more than just a few nervous clients, the stories and news articles around the scandal have started to focus more on the company’s clients being the victims, rather than the company itself – customers instilled their trust in the company to protect their personal information, and specifically to hide their identities from their partners… now they stand the chance of being exposed, depending on Ashley Madison’s decision on how to handle the threat.
The vast majority of our domestic investigations are centred around infidelity and as proud as we are to successfully deliver the evidence our clients need, we are very aware of how emotionally stressful, saddening and hurtful the outcomes can be.
It’s with that in mind that we would like to reiterate that we can help you to put your mind at ease if you feel suspicious about your partner – in many cases the evidence we uncover is contrary to what our clients suspect and it’s always a pleasant surprise to know that your partner is, in fact, faithful.
