Hackers have threatened to release details of all 37 million profiles – including one belonging to a Guardian journalist who registered while investigating site
Hackers threatened to release the identity and credit card details of 37 million adulterers on Monday. And it turns out I was one of them.
I set up an Ashley Madison profile last year to investigate the site’s claims to have built an “infidelity map of the UK”. But when I attempted to delete my account, I was presented with a £15 charge. Given the service runs on discretion, I decided my personal information would probably be safe and I forgot all about it until last night.
