AshleyMadison.com: A Legal Battle of Extortion & Revenge

The hacking of the cheating website Ashley Madison has generated extortion crimes and led to two unconfirmed reports of suicides. The exposed information has garnered a lot of press about who exactly is on it; including popular reality TV stars, powerful CEOs and government officials who accessed the site using the government networks. This breach in security humiliated about 30 million users and has created major doubt in the security of government networks. The suicides and extortion crimes associated with the exposure have investigators eager in finding the hackers.

The hackers who took responsibility for the break-in had accused the website owners of dishonesty and ineptitude and said the company refused to bow to their demands to close the site. These hackers refer to themselves at Impact Team. This worldwide list affects families, spouses and children. With that goes the threatening from criminals who proceed to find people on the list and use their information against them. By extorting individuals, these hate crimes are becoming a resourceful way for offenders to make a profit.

Toronto Police Seeks Hackers

A representative of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security attended a news conference held by the Toronto Police acting superintendent Bryce Evans who said that the attack was having an “enormous social and economic fallout.” Special Agent Ron Marcello of Homeland Security Investigations said that the Toronto Police asked for guidance from the FBI to lead the investigation on the attack. This is a worldwide hack that threatens the security of many protected networks and the Toronto police want the best security investigators on the case to prevent any further damage.

Avid Life Media Inc., the company that produced the website, said that the reward for any information leading to finding the hackers would be $500,000 because more help is needed. This attack is malicious and unprecedented whereas the crime is more powerful than just exposing cheating spouses. The infringement in security is cause for concern and has spawned extortion tactics to capitalize on. This revenge can be legally pursued and paid for in damages if the victim suffers.
