    Ashley Madison hack could mean trouble for some feds

    The successful cyberattack that allowed hackers to get personal information on tens of millions of users of a website dedicated to connecting married people seeking extramarital liaisons may bring trouble to some federal and military employees.
    The hackers have posted the data on 32 million people who were members of AshleyMadison.com, and an analysis of the information found that about 15,000 of them had provided .gov or .mil email addresses, according to Wired.
    The data was posted on the dark Web and is not accessible through most browsers, according to the report. It appears to include account details, login information and credit card transaction data that includes names and street addresses — blowing the cover of those who signed up using fictitious information and then used a credit card for payment.
    The hackers had demanded that Avid Life Media take down AshleyMadison.com and its companion site, EstablishedMen.com. When the company did not comply, the hackers posted the stolen data.
    Seriously? Who uses their .mil to sign up for dating websites...let alone this crap?

    Certainly gives new meaning to the Ashley Madison motto of "life's short have an affair"

    Will probably start seeing more of these...


    Josh Duggar had a paid Ashley Madison Account
    In 2013, conservative reality TV star Josh Duggar—of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting fame—was named the executive director of the Family Research Council, a conservative lobbying group in D.C. which seeks
    “to champion marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the
    seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society.” During that time, he
    also maintained a paid account on Ashley Madison, a web site created for the express purpose of cheating on your spouse.

    In May 2015, Duggar was forced to resign afterIn Touch Weekly reported
    that he had molested five young girls (four of whom were his own
    sisters) beginning in 2002. When the accusations became public, the
    family went into crisis mode, insisting that Josh had reformed and that the media covering the claims was intent on “exploiting women.”
    Josh himself took to his family’s Facebook page to absolve himself of his past indiscretions and assure the world he was back on a righteous path:

    ...

    But data released online in the wake of the hack on Ashley Madison’s
    servers certainly seems to show otherwise. Someone using a credit card
    belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by his grandmother Mary—a home that was consistently shown on their now-cancelled TV show, and in which Anna Duggar gave birth to her first child—paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015.

    Wait! $986.00 for two months?

    That is the real story if you ask me. How in the hell do they justify paying that much for a dating site?
    All behold that fancy strutting peacock, the bake sale diva...

    The $250 is apparently refunded if you don't hook up within 3 months.

    Statement from Josh Duggar...

    "I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife."

    I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.

    I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.
    The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.

    As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.

    I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time."
