Krebs on Security reports that Ashley Madison, an online "dating" site for those wishing to cheat on their spouses, has been hacked and its customer data compromised. The data breach could expose some 37 million unfaithful or would-be unfaithful spouses along with their credit-card info and any, uh, special desires these customers shared via the service.
The group claiming responsibility for the hack calls itself The Impact Team. It's demanding that the site "shut down immediately permanently" [sic] or the customer data will be made public.
This situation is either terrifying, hilarious, or a little of both, depending on one's perspective. There's more, but I'd encourage reading the Krebs report for the full story. Just... wow.
