Ashley Madison leak 2.0: new dump is twice as large, and includes CEO's emails

ashleydump2

Self-proclaimed Ashley Madison hackers the Impact Team today released what looks like another 20 gigabytes of ill-gotten data. The just-dropped “other shoe” includes emails from the cheater-dating website's CEO.

Just two days ago, the Impact Team posted a 10-gigabyte file said to be from ashleymadison.com.

The second release, accessible initially only for Tor users, includes more personal information about the dating website's users--but notably, this one also includes what look like email folders for several of the company's top executives.

As Wired's Kim Zetter notes, the hackers signed today's message with a PGP key, to validate the identity of the poster.

Wired reported in detail, Ars has coverage too.

Wired: “You can see the email spool highlighted in this screenshot of the file names in the recent dump.”
