Extramarital dating service is postdating a check illegal
But many Singaporeans, including Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing and other community leaders have rejected the proposed local edition of the website.
Ashley Madison—the dating website whose tag line reads, “Life is short.
Have an affair”—finds itself in an awkward position after hackers managed to steal users’ data.
Hackers graciously permit the company to keep the other sites online (the only other site that belongs to ALM is the Cougar Life that connects older women with younger men).
The company responds by charging attackers for committing a criminal act.
The site has apologized “for this unprovoked and criminal intrusion into our customers’ information.” Avid Life Media, the platform’s parent company which also owns sites such as Cougar Life and Established Men, goes on to say that they “have been able to secure our sites, and close the unauthorized access points.”The hackers, who call themselves Impact Team, claim to have to retrieved the identities and contact details of the site’s users and have published the information online.
“The hackers leaked maps of internal company servers, employee network account information, company bank account data, and salary information,” cybersecurity expert Brian Krebs said.
The MDA on Friday said it has worked with Internet service providers to block access to the site, which "stood out (because) it aggressively promotes and facilitates extramarital affairs and has declared that it will specifically target Singaporeans." Members pay Ashley to contact each other.
The website reached Asia this year, first with a Japan site in June, followed by a Hong Kong site in August.
Have an affair” and the ‘Established Men’ website that sets up rich men with women — both belong to the Avid Life Media company.
Hackers claim to punish ALM’s unfair practices: the company reportedly asks its customers to pay a fee for completely erasing their profiles but actually does not wipe clients’ data as promised.
