The Ashley Madison Affair
In the early 2000s a former attorney from Canada was online one day when he had an idea. There are a tonne of dating sites around for single people but what about people in relationships who wanted to cheat? And so Ashley Madison was born. – a website for men and women looking to have an affair. It was a huge success.
And then one day employees at the company sit down at their computers and find a message popping up on their screens. If you don’t take down this website we will release the names and email addresses of all of your users. 40 million people – all cheats – about to have their deepest, darkest secrets exposed for the world to see.
