Ashley Madison. There's a name to strike fear into the heart of any cheating spouse or partner. The website was once the domain of those after some action outside their relationship, but it's now a potential home wrecker as data from the site that was stolen by hackers has been published online.
This is a unique hack. Such attacks usually target financial information, but the Ashley Madison hackers seem to just want to embarrass and voice their displeasure at the existence of such a site, with potentially devastating consequences for those involved.
Most businesses don't operate in the murky world of extra-marital affairs, but the huge damage a hack can do is an ongoing concern. So, ever ready to offer advice and guidance, V3 has put together 10 tips to avoid falling foul of the hackers.
10. Don't boast about your security, as it only encourages hackers
In 2014 Noel Biderman, chief executive of Avid Life Media, the parent company of Ashley Madison, described the firm's servers as "untouchable". Many people will now disagree with this assessment.
It is generally accepted that hackers thrive on attention and exposing the self-righteous. Boasting about the strength of server or database security is likely to attract unwanted attacks. Some will even see it as a challenge.
Indeed, claims by Biderman that the first data dump by the Ashley Madison hackers was fake served only to enrage them, resulting in yet more data being released.
Gary Newe, technical director at F5 Networks, suggested that the Ashley Madison hack shows that the rate of data breaches shows no signs of slowing down.
"Is it even possible to keep our online data secure? If you haven't been targeted yet, you've been lucky. But if organisations don't act now, hackers will continue to find new ways to compromise systems and steal data," he said.
