    The chief executive of infidelity website Ashley Madison's parent company Avid Life Media has left, just over a week after hackers leaked data about millions of its clients in a massive cyber assault.

    Avid Life said on Friday the departure of Noel Biderman was by "mutual agreement" and its existing senior management team would take over until a new CEO is appointed.

    On Aug. 18, hackers who claimed to be unhappy with its business practices released the Ashley Madison customer data, and police probing the breach said it had sparked extortion attempts and at least two unconfirmed suicides.

    The data dump contained email addresses of U.S. government officials, UK civil servants and workers at European and North American corporations, taking already deep-seated fears about Internet security and data protection to a new level.

    "This change is in the best interest of the company and allows us to continue to provide support to our members and dedicated employees," the Toronto-based company said.

    Will Howard come to the defense of his biggest advertiser?

    They need Marci Turk badly– she'll straighten this whole mess out and protect the precious Ashley Madison brand, just like she's done for Howard and his round-the-clock entertainment channels.

    My opinion rests solely on whether Biderman is a member of a ruthless clan who will do anything for money. Such as the CEO of Vivid. Get the picture?

    The funny part is he said multiple times in interviews that he didn't use the service, and his wife in a 2013 interview said that she would be "devastated" if he used it... And the hack apparently showed that he used it multiple times.

    But my guess is that he and his wife are swingers and they're fine with some extra fun. I think you'd HAVE to be to run something like that. They're just not going to say it publicly.

    I don't expect any news of a divorce or anything like that from them.
