There’s a burning question that is stuck in our minds tonight – how do I check if someone I know has been exposed in the recent Ashley Madison hack?
First of all take a deep breath. It’s not the best time to play along and let these cybercriminals win. We should not be searching this database to see if we were exposed. We should close off our computers and take a vacation or walk. Let the situation subside.
Once you search the database, you’re opening yourself up to a whole new can of worms. Realize the consequences of the information that you will receive. What will you do? Are you ready to confront your significant other? It’s not always that simple. Many members may have subscribed to the site at one point in their lives and may have deactivated it as soon as they found something steady… as was the case of one Mississauga, ON man. Does that mean they are guilt of adultery?
Take Michelle Thomson for instance. The newly elected SNP MP for Edinburgh West said her email was used to open up an Ashley Madison account without her knowledge, suggesting it might have been the work of someone looking to tarnish her name. AshleyMadison.com does not require you to verify your email used to create the account.
But when you have someone like Joshua Duggar, the star of 19 Kids and Counting, a show that was cancelled after it was revealed that he may have molested four of his sister, you may find someone who is guilty. Records show that he purchased two paid subscriptions totaling $986.76 between February, 2013 and May, 2015. The billing address matched the address of his grandmother.
So…what may seem as something guilty may end up as just a setup.
If you’re really dying to know…well keep on reading.
You can search through the data dumped three days ago and again yesterday by the hacker by visiting this site, which was launched yesterday by Trustify, an Internet investigation company that helps expose infidelities and marital suspicions.
Alternatively, you could use this tool. All you have to do is enter an email and see if it was hacked.
But then again you could not check it. No good can come of it. AlexNoudelman.com does not endorse the websites where you can check emails belonging to Ashley Madison customers. Enter at your own free risk.
