Divorce Rates May Rise As Result of Ashley Madison Breach

The public is obsessed with watching real life drama unfold before its eyes. All you need to do to find the truth in this statement is to tune into cable television on a nightly basis, turn on your computer, or scroll through your Facebook, Twitter, or other social media feed. In today’s society, there seems to be a website or reality TV show for just about everything you could want to know about your friends and family, or even people you don’t know. It may seem strange, but there is even a site dedicated to helping people cheat on their spouses. That site though, has recently faced a massive data breach, the impact of which has yet to be fully felt.

The site Ashley Madison, who has the slogan “life is short, have an affair” has experienced a breach of user information. The information leaked is likely to cause ripples in the marriage of those involved. Details regarding the leaked data include the following:

●          Customer and user information has been leaked through a hack of the site, though the extent of what is included in this broad category has not yet been determined.

●          The site is offering users the option to cancel membership without a fee, which is usually a feature that requires payment.

●          Upon learning of the breach, the site was secured and the portals leading to the unauthorized access had been identified and closed.

Subscribing to a site that provides information on the availability of participating in an extra marital relationship is a dangerous undertaking. The hack of information could lead to exposing users who had wished to remain anonymous, which may spell trouble for their marriage. Much like information  you post on social media sites can be damaging to your divorce case, being a member of this site could be used as ammunition for your spouse to seek a divorce.
