Mystery twitterer linked to Ashley Madison dump

Security blogger Brian Krebs is among those hot on the trail, and he "may have a new lead," according to the New York Times.

On Wednesday, Brian Krebs, the well-known security blogger posited a new theory about who may have hacked the site, which helps arrange extramarital affairs. Mr. Krebs zeroed in on a Twitter user named Thadeus Zu (@deuszu), who posted a link to Ashley Madison’s stolen, proprietary source code before the information was made public this month.

Some apparent problems with this hypothesis have already been noted, but the operator of the @deuszu account is doing his or her best to look guilty.

Reminder: the site was probably just a scam with only a handful of legitimate female participants. Little can be implied about its users beyond stupidity.
