Ashley Madison is perhaps most famous for two things - infidelity and godawful security. In 2015, the website for cheaters was hacked, leaking almost 10 gigabytes of data on the dark web, which included account details, email addresses and payment information for about 32 million users. And now security researchers have found that the dating site is still exposing user data, only now it isn't because of hackers. The site just has crap security settings.
