The Ashley Madison Hackers Just Dumped More Data—a Lot More

By Adam Clark Estes on at

The fun never stops with the Ashley Madison hack. The hackers who released 10-gigabytes of compressed data a couple of days ago just released another 20-gigabytes of data, including what appears to be the email inbox of the company’s CEO.

The so-called Impact Team hacker group released the new torrent of data in an update to the original page on the dark web that hosted the first data dump. With a cheeky note to Avid Live Media (Ashley Madison parent company) CEO Noel Biderman, the hackers signed the data with the same PGP signature as the first data dump, reports Motherboard. Since that data dump appears to be legit, we can assume that the new dump is as well.

That said, until we have the chance to dig through the new data and verify it with experts can we can't be 100% sure whether the hackers are messing with us or actually do have that much more data. The big question, though: Just how much data do they have in total? Stay tuned.
