Infidelity website Ashley Madison wants you to know it's doing just fine, okay? That massive data breach exposing account information of the site's 37 million users is totally old news. Avid Life Media, Ashley Madison's parent company, touted the website's recent growth in a blog post Monday:
In particular, the company took issue with a Gizmodo report asserting that virtually no real women used the site and calling Ashley Madison "a science-fictional future where every woman on Earth is dead, and some Dilbert-like engineer has replaced them with badly-designed robots."
Avid Life Media CEO Noel Biderman stepped down Friday in a move the company said was in its best interest. Canadian police are reportedly investigating potential cases of extortion, hate crimes, and suicides linked to the data breach.
