Ashley Madison: The Internet’s Greatest COINTEL PRO Honey Pot?

from 21st Century Wire:

Finally, the real reason why professional hackers have lifted the data of 37 million users from the fashionable ‘infidelity’ website Ashley Madison.

Anyone employed by the state who was stupid enough to join this site should by now realize that this whole hacking affair was a staged exercise in mass entrapment, and blackmail. The media are making a big deal about how this hack is somehow a “goldmine” for cyber criminals, but do not dare mention what this kind of information could do in the hands of the deep state via covert agencies like the NSA, the FBI or the CIA, Canada’s CSIS, or overseas spook houses like Britain’s MI5, or Israel’s Mossad.

Much has been made of the not-so-bright conclave of 15,000 US gov’t and military personnel and .mil addresses – all of whom who were using the website to facilitate their extramarital flings, but the pool of suckers is not limited to American shores. AP reports:

“Although many may have signed up out of curiosity and some have little more to fear than embarrassment, the consequences for others could reverberate beyond their marriages. The French leak monitoring firm CybelAngel said it counted 1,200 email addresses in the data dump with the .sa suffix, suggesting users were connected to Saudi Arabia, where adultery is punishable by death.”

According to the Telegraph, UK gov’t and Defense Dept. staff were particularly badly hit in the data dump:

“According to the website Political Scrapbook, there are 92 Ministry of Defence email addresses among the leaked details. The website has found 1,716 email addresses from universities and further education colleges, using the suffix; 124 using; 92 using; 65 local education authorities and schools using; 56 National Heath Service emails and less than 50 police emails (”

“Michelle Thomson, one of the SNP’s newly-elected Westminster MPs, has said one of her email addresses is among the leaked data dumped online by hackers. The married MP said someone had stolen her email address and used it without her knowledge.”

Of course, the really big winner in this scandal, as with most things – are the lawyers. Elizabeth Hicks, partner at British divorce law firm Irwin Mitchell, must be chuffed about the potential for future business:

With 1.2m Britons apparently affected by the data leak, 95 per cent of whom are reportedly male, there will no doubt be a few nervous husbands sat round the dinner table tonight.”

It’s also a potential disaster for the website’s closet gay users. Business Insider adds here:

    Those of us who have no problem honoring our vows to our spouse are chuckling over the pratfall of those who do. Good on you, you s**ts. Well earned, well deserved, IMO. You made your beds, now sleep in them without bitching, whining, or crying about it. THIS is why other people behave themselves and do not put themselves in this position. 😀
