This is a problem around the country. People have used their work emails to secretly sign up for AshleyMadison and now their spouses and bosses could possibly find out.
But what about government employees, in particular, those in New York State?
The massive release of customer names, emails and credit card information from AshleyMadison.com by hackers has turned up at least 120 New York government email addresses, according to a source that is filtering through the download for WIBX.
The list includes people who have been issued email addresses through the New York State Education Department, NYS Taxation and finance and even the New York City Office for the Aging, among many others.
Hackers who stole customer information from the cheating site AshleyMadison.com dumped 9.7 gigabytes of data to the dark web on Tuesday fulfilling a threat to release sensitive information including account details, log-ins and credit card details, if Avid Life Media, the owner of the website didn't take Ashley Madison.com offline permanently.
WIBX has opted not to reveal the actual email addresses of these individuals, but is providing a list of the government offices and how many employees allegedly used their .gov email address to sign up.
