Hackers have released what they claim to be the personal information, including names, email addresses, phone numbers and partial credit card numbers of 37 million users of the infidelity site Ashley Madison

Ashley Madison condemned the attack but stopped short of verifying the information leaked online was genuine. The data release will inevitably lead to anxious partners attempting to search for the names or email addresses of people they suspect may have used the site, whose tagline is “Life is short. Have an affair”. The 10 gigabyte database file was released on BitTorrent and the dark web on Tuesday night and includes email and postal addresses, user descriptions, weight and height, encrypted passwords, partial credit card numbers and transaction details. The Guardian confirmed that the email address and details of a Guardian journalist who had used Ashley Madison as part of an investigation is in the database released on Tuesday night.
