Now worldwide famous infidelity website is being sued in the Unites States by a person claiming that Ashley Madison caused him emotional damage by failing to adequately protect his sensitive information from theft. Moreover, the lawsuit seeks class-action status, accusing the hacked website and its parent company Avid Life Media of negligence and invasion of privacy and seeking undisclosed damages.
According to the lawsuit, aside from making “extremely personal and embarrassing data accessible to everyone”, the recent hack also made personal details including addresses, phone numbers and credit card data available on the Internet.
As you may know, a few weeks ago data from the Toronto-based Ashley Madison website was hacked and then published by a hacking collective calling itself the Impact Team. As a result, sensitive personal, financial, and identifying data of about 37 million users was made available to the public. According to the recent lawsuit, this hack could have been prevented if the site operators had taken reasonable precautions to protect its users’ data, by, for example, encrypting it.
Right after the hack, the Impact Team threatened to release stolen information if the website was not taken down, and after the site operators ignored the request, the hackers published personal information for everyone to see. The leaked information included millions of email addresses for American government officials, British civil servants and top managers at European and North American corporations. Ashley Madison’s parent company was also sued in Canada in a class-action suit seeking $760m in damages.
