Ashley Madison.com, an American most prominent dating website, that helps married people cheat on their spouses has been hacked, potentially putting very private details of Millions of its users at risk of being exposed.
The group apparently raises an objection to the website’s morally dubious business model and were threatening the company to release all its customer records if the Ashley Madison and Established Men are not completely shut down.
It’s also a complete lie," the group wrote in a statement released Sunday."Users almost always pay with the credit card; their purchase details are not removed as promised and include real name and address, which is, of course, the most important information the users want to be removed." Avid Life Media is working with law enforcement agencies to investigate this criminal act and also using Digital Millennium Copyright Act to get the personal data the hackers have disclosed so far removed from the Internet.However, It’s unlikely to be a prevention measure, because once the personal data has been publicly exposed over the Internet, it becomes almost next to impossible to stop its spread.There has been a rise in the popularity and number of Thai dating sites in the last two years, the majority centered, unsurprisingly, on western men meeting Thai women.Whether this is because Thai women are increasing in popularity or whether they are becoming increasingly web savvy isn’t clear.
But one thing is for sure, you should be as cautious about the online dating process in Thailand as you would in your own country, and you should make sure you’re well informed before you start out – not just about the types of women you’re likely to come across, but also the size of membership, cost and service of each site. I’ve met many western guys who met their partner on Thai dating sites, and highly recommend this avenue over nightclubs, bars and introductions, which often turn into a nightmare.I also know many well-educated, professional Thai women active on these sites.It’s not just those looking for a relationship that can benefit from Thai dating sites, either.Many men travelling on business or coming for a holiday in the region find a date for their visit through this channel.These rules apply to dating sites across the board.It’s common sense, but worth reminding yourself all the same, before you get carried away with the thousands of potential partners you’re about to be viewing. Engage with the person you’re interested in over a good month or two before arranging a meet.
