Ashley Madison Lies, says Adultery Site Is Still Growing


Despite a massive hack that exposed the personal information of millions of users, the Ashley Madison dating site for married people is growing, the company says.

“Recent media reports predicting the imminent demise of Ashley Madison are greatly exaggerated,” Avid Life Media, said in a release Monday.

The dating website for married people was breached in July by a hacker or hackers calling themselves the Impact Team. Customer files and databases from the site were posted online Aug. 18.

The company’s CEO, Noel Biderman, stepped down on Friday.

None of this is dampening customer interest, the Toronto, Canada-based company said Monday.

In a statement emailed to media, Avid Life Media said in the past week alone “hundreds of thousands of new users signed up for the Ashley Madison platform – including 87,596 women.”

The number of women on the site has been at issue. One of the reasons the Impact Team gave for breaching was that it was a scam, that there were almost no real women on the site.

In the database posted online, there were about 31 million accounts marked as male and 5.5 million marked as female.
