About 37 million potential adulterers who were exposed when the Ashley Madison cheating website was hacked in August now have to contend with email threats. Not to mention their angry spouses who may have found out! Ashley Madison is infamous for providing unfaithful spouses a platform for illicit trysts.

Can you imagine opening up your email account and seeing on the subject line ” You got busted.”  The message read “Unfortunately your data was leaked in the recent hacking of Ashley Madison and I know and have your information. I have also used your user profile to find your Facebook page and I can now message all of your friends and family members.” Then there was a demand for money.

Emails like this have been sent to an estimated 37 million of Ashley Madison users whose information was breached after a high-profile hack of the site.

If you should find yourself in this situation, you can contact the New York company Status Labs which is a reputation management firm to help you with this problem.
