  • Ashley Madison proposes $11.2 million payout for users exposed in data breach

The owner of the Ashley Madison adultery website said on Friday it has agreed to pay $11.2 million to settle US litigation over a 2015 data breach that exposed personal details of millions of users. Details included not just customer names, email addresses, postal codes, partial credit card numbers and hashed passwords, but also Global Positioning System coordinates.

The site, which used the slogan "Life is short, have an affair", was infamously hacked in 2015, lost millions of users' records, prompting a denial from Conservative MP listed in the trove and prompting face-palms-a-plenty from infosec experts who quickly found basic security mistakes on the site.

Following the breach, Avid Life Media renamed itself Ruby.

The company also sent takedown letters to website owners or service providers associated with sites that were hosting leaked data. For example, by May 31, the company needed to put in place a policy to delete inactive accounts - and all related data - after an "appropriate period". The company paid $1.6 million last December to settle an FTC probe into its lax security and deceptive practices - millions of "female" accounts on the site were actually bots operated by Ashley Madison. Ashley Madison has long courted attention with its claim to be the Internet's leading facilitator of extramarital liaisons, boasting that "thousands of cheating wives and cheating husbands sign up every day looking for an affair". It claims that the account credentials were not verified for accuracy and some may have been created using other individuals' information.

The group of hackers, called Impact Team, said they stole the information of 37 million members of Ashley Madison.
