Ashley Madison Site Hacked – Offers Free Removal

Ashely Madison Removal

After hackers allegedly stole the data of over 37 million Ashley Madison users, they are now offering a free removal. Ashley Madison is a married dating and extramarital affairs website. Their slogan is: “Life is short. Have an affair.” The removal includes all information related to a member’s profile and communications activity. The process involves a hard-delete of a requesting user’s profile, posted pictures and all messages sent to the system users’ email boxes.

Hackers threatened to post some personal information of the user database unless the site owners deactivated the ashleymadison site and their site. According to the press release, Ashley Madison removed or will remove this information under the DMCA Copyright Act from the offending websites. I would imagine that the information will also be removed from the search engines.

CheaterVille Website Taken Down!

The website launched in 2011 owned by James McGigney has removed all of their user submitted photos of alleged cheaters. On their home page they disclosed that they are re-routing all of the indexed search results of cheaters to their home page.

Since CheaterVille did theoretically not have a removal policy, we believe this is an important step toward shutting down websites like these. We don’t know the exact reason the site was taken down but hope that it is related to the case with the passage of the new law in California.
