But, no worry, claims the company to a reporter at Wired: it's issued takedowns to everyone who posted the info, so problem solved: In a followup statement to WIRED from Avid Life Media Monday morning, the company writes that it has used copyright infringement takedown requests to have “all personally identifiable information about our users” deleted from the unnamed websites where it was published. Anyone who actually believes that DMCA takedown notices actually stopped this information from being available is probably also busy shipping the contents of his or her bank accounts to friendly princes-in-need across the Atlantic. The company has no "copyright" claim in the information in question in the first place, and issuing a copyright/DMCA takedown doesn't make any sense at all, other than in a sort of desperate "please save us!" attempt to not have the company be completely destroyed by this incredible data breach.The hackers, however, have no sympathy for the people who might be exposed by the theft of the database: "Too bad for those men.They're cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion." The news of the hack, confirmed in a press release released on the wires earlier today, was first broken by security blogger Brian Krebs who found portions of the stolen data posted on the internet by a group calling itself The Impact Team.

All that remains is the following anonymous post of their manifesto to survivinginfidelity.com: Avid Life Media runs Ashley Madison, the internet’s #1 cheating site, for people who are married or in a relationship to have an affair.
ALM also runs Established Men, a prostitution/human trafficking website for rich men to pay for sex, as well as cougar life, a dating website for cougars, man crunch, a site for gay dating, swappernet for swingers, and the big and the beautiful, for overweight dating. We have hacked them completely, taking over their entire office and production domains and thousands of systems, and over the past few years have taken all customer information databases, complete source code repositories, financial records, documentation, and emails, as we prove here. For a company whose main promise is secrecy, it’s like you didn’t even try, like you thought you had never pissed anyone off.
