AshleyMadison data appearing in the underground

Our researchers have started uncovering large amounts of information possibly from the AshleyMadison breach. We have identified several files containing the name, phone number and billing information as well as profile locations on the Ashley Madison website over the last several hours.

It appears as though some of the high frequency users of the systems information is starting to be posted so we are watching to see if a full dump of the stolen data appears.

UPDATE 8/5/2015:
As of today we have not seen a full dump of data on very specific information on high frequency users of the system. We are seeing some additional personal information being posted as well such as employment information which may be an attempt to ruin the persons reputation. This makes sense as the attacker had stated via Twitter that he wanted to get back at the immoral use of these sites.

If we see any additional information we will be posting it to our Threat Intelligence Platform. If you would like to get access to our threat intelligence platform please goto and click on create an account. This service is only available to paid subscribers or trusted industry partners.
