Statement From Avid Life Media, Monday, Aug. 31, 2015
“Recent media reports predicting the imminent demise of Ashley Madison are greatly exaggerated,” said Avid Life Media Inc., the company behind the Ashley Madison website. The company said that it continues its day-to-day operations even as it deals with the theft of its private data by criminal hackers. “Despite having our business and customers attacked, we are growing. This past week alone, hundreds of thousands of new users signed up for the Ashley Madison platform – including 87,596 women. Some journalists have turned the focus of the criminal act against Ashley Madison inside out, attacking us instead of the hackers. Last week, a reporter who claimed to analyze the stolen data made incorrect assumptions about the meaning of fields contained in the leaked data. This reporter concluded that the number of active female members on Ashley Madison could be calculated based on those assumptions. That conclusion was wrong.” See the release for the full statement and to learn more about Ashley Madison’s plans.
