The extramarital-affair online dating website Ashley Madison has been hacked, and the hacking group taking credit has threatened to release full details for the site's subscribers, which reportedly number more than 37 million across 46 countries, unless the service shuts down.
The war on the United States has begun. There might be some individuals that would applaud these hackers efforts in taking down such an inappropriate site, however, the judgment does not fall on the hands of hacktivists. The facts are this; there are a community of individuals that are taking matters into their own hands and issuing their form of judgment. If this scenario resulted in a violent outcome, we would be calling the nefarious individuals vigilantes.
The government should get involved and firms should look to secure their environments adequately.
