    Two individuals associated with the leak of Ashley Madison customer details are reported to have taken their lives, according to police in Canada.

    The police in Toronto gave no further information about the deaths.

    Ashley Madison's Canadian parent company Avid Life Media is offering a C$500,000 (£240,000) reward for information on the hackers, they added.

    Details of more than 33m accounts were stolen from the website, which offers users the chance to have an affair.

    Addressing the hackers, known as The Impact Team, acting staff superintendent Bryce Evans of the Toronto police said: "I want to make it very clear to you your actions are illegal and we will not be tolerating them. This is your wake-up call."

    Police are seeking information from members of the wider hacker community that might aid their investigation.

    The breach was "very sophisticated", said Detective Menard from the technological crime unit of Toronto Police.

    Cash reward
    Mr Evans confirmed that credit card data was included in the original data dump released by The Impact Team.


    He said that investigators believed this was limited to the last four digits of the main card number.

    Consequently, police are advising victims of the hack to review their accounts.

    He also explained that the hack had already led to a series of "spin-offs of crimes and further victimisation".

    "Criminals have already engaged in online scams by claiming to provide access to the leaked websites," he said.

    "The public needs to be aware that by clicking on these links you are exposing your computers to malware, spyware, adware and viruses."

    'Thunderstruck'
    The unfolding of the hack was also detailed at the conference - from the moment on 12 July when several Avid Life Media employees logged in to their computers and were confronted by a message from the hackers.

    This message was accompanied by music - AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", said Mr Evans.

    "This hack is one of the largest data breaches in the world and is very unique on its own in that it exposed tens of millions of people's personal information," he added.

    Police have set up a Twitter account, @AMCaseTPS, and hashtag, #AMCaseTPS, in a bid to gather information about the hack from members of the public.

    Romans 6:23

    For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.





    I'm not especially religious, but much of the Bible is just good advice regarding human nature.

    Conservatives get blasted for leading boring, safe and ordinary lives while Bruce Jenner kills people on the highway while doing his makeup.

    It's not rocket science that if you live a clean life you will be much happier. I just wish us humans could do it. I have tried and failed miserably.

    That's a good point, but most of your "enemies" are fairly wholesome and not hypocrites.

    I try too, and I fail. But I'm not going to stop trying because it's the right thing to do.

    Has Howie said anything about it or is he still working on his Bill Cosby material?

    Gotta imagine a quite a few Stern listeners tried Ashley Madison, they advertised all the time. Heard this song a hundred times.

    The most obvious question remains unasked. Why do these dummies use real names and email addresses?

    Youre not alone. It doesnt mitigate our sins, it just shows weak and undeserving we are of Gods Grace.

    Because no one can remember fake stuff, or they have way too much faith in "the system."

    I listened to a play back of the 8/17 show on YT and there must have been 5 or 6 Ashley M commercials - way more than I've noticed in the past.

    Not sure if that's AM trying to keep their name out there to maintain their integrity (lol) or Sirius playing as many commercials to fulfill a contract.

    I hope AM goes bankrupt - it's a horrible concept not benefitting anyone (accept lawyers) - only getting people in trouble - and it's one less BS advertiser for wigski.
