The stolen database of 32 million people who used cheating website Ashley Madison has made its way to the Web. Just plug in a name or email address, and you’ll find out if someone who signed up for the service.Check to see if an e-mail address you recognise is part of the database on the web: https://ashley.cynic.al/.Usually, hacked data is difficult to reach or sort through.
And they’re traded on file-sharing platforms (which also requires special software and clicking on dubious downloads).
But now anyone can check if his or her spouse was cheating — just by filling out a form.
Someone has even created a custom Google Map that displays some of Ashley users’ addresses registered with the website.
It’s difficult to verify the accuracy of these searching tools.
But at least one tool, which searches by email address, returns accurate results.
CNNMoney verified this by plugging in email addresses of users it has independently verified. Many of the cheaters exposed in this hack serve in the U. military, evident because they used email addresses that end in the domain.
Adultery does, in fact, violate Uniform Code of Military Justice.
It’s a prosecutable offense that can land you a year in confinement and a dishonorable discharge.
What about people who used Ashley Madison to engage in gay affairs?
The website’s users were worldwide, and there are 79 countries where homosexuality is illegal.
In Afghanistan, Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the punishment is death.
