FTC Investigates Ashley Madison: 1 Year after Hack

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is currently investigating Avid Life Media (ALM), the company that owns a hacked extramarital dating site Ashley Madison. The 2015 hack saw the entire membership register of the site posted online.


The company is unaware of what precise aspect of the company is being examined. The last year breach exposed a number of other potential red flags in ALM. According to the leaked database, most of the female users of Ashley Madison turned out to be fake accounts aimed at luring men into using and paying for the website. Initially, Ashley Madison denied the allegations, claiming that it was just “incorrect assumptions about the meaning of fields contained in the leaked data”. But when the parent company later commissioned its own report from independent auditors, it found that Ashley Madison had indeed made fake profiles to impersonate real women and ran them until late 2015, although Ashley Madison stopped using them in the US, Canada and Australia earlier. The industry experts recall that another US company had been forced by the FTC to pay over $600,000 for similar practices a couple years ago.

ALM is trying to recover from the hack by positioning new executives for the push back to respectability. The company apologized for the hack and announced some big changes, including reinventing their security posture. ALM has hired cyber security experts at Deloitte and expects to reach the industry standard by this fall. Security specialists found simple backdoors in the company’s Linux-based servers.

At the same time, the hack had one unexpected result: a surge in popularity for Ashley Madison itself, with over 4m new accounts being set up in the 4 months after the hack.

Irascible avatargood article was wondering what became of that company following the hack. I know there was a huge reaction on social media like Facebook and twitter but not much more. I also think it is complete and total bullshyte when they say their membership has actually increased by over 4 million more new members since the hack.

I think people had a strong reaction to this site and itrs services from the beginning making it a target. Its one thing to operate and advertise a dating website, its quite another to operate and advertise a site that blatantly promotes and encourages people in relationships to cheat.

No avatarI am sure many of those new accounts were people like myself who just logged on to see what their site was. It is actually a pretty poor site
