The team is attempting to hold ALM to ransom with the information it has, threatening to release "all customer records, including profiles with all the customers' secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses, and employee documents and emails," unless Ashley Madison and Established Men are taken offline in all forms
This is pretty crappy. Whether you like the AM site or not, this is web terrorism. Everyone has the right to join, or not join, whatever site they want, as long as they are not breaking the law.

What is to stop a similar group from hacking into Whole Foods or Costco's or Kroger's records and threatening to release them if the chain does not close their doors immediately. This could happen to any company, whether it is a company people love or hate - it could happen to any one.

This is scary and a real problem.

Truth! The site content is secondary to the overall risk we all face online from hackers/crackers.

We were talking about this. Somebody could claim they hacked a site like this and produce a fake list of names and ruin peoples lives even if they were 100% innocent. Try to make your spouse believe the list is not real. This is shitty anyway you look at it.
