A hacker group calling itself "The Impact Team" has managed to hack the website "Ashley Madison" and obtained information about its users.
The site has 37 million users worldwide.
A small amount of information has already been published, but has now been unpublished, writes gizmodo.com.
The news of the hacking was first published on KrebsonSecurity.com.
- Avid Life Media has been instructed to take Ashley Madison and Established Men off the net, otherwise we will publish all customer information, including profiles of all customers' secret sexual fantasies, matching credit card information, real names and addresses, and employees' documents and e- mails. The other sites can remain online, wrote The Impact Team in a statement.
CEO of Avid Life Media, Noel Biderman (which owns Ashley Madison), is recognizing the hacking, saying that hacking is a criminal offense.
- We do not deny that this has happened. Like us or not, this is still a crime, he says.
Ashley Madison is currently offline.
