Ashley Madison Hackers Taunt CEO In New Data Dump: Report

Here we go again.

The pain isn't over yet for Ashley Madison. 

Hackers have released a massive new archive of data about the affair-enabling website and its parent company Avid Life Media, Motherboard reported Thursday. This follows Tuesday's leak of identifying information about Ashley Madison users.

In the new release, hackers reportedly taunt Noel Biderman, Avid Life's CEO.

"Hey Noel, you can admit it's real now," they wrote, according to a screenshot captured by both Motherboard and The Verge.

When news broke Tuesday that hackers had released the site's user data onto the so-called dark web -- which people are able to access anonymously, making uploads difficult to trace -- a tech consultant working for Ashley Madison initially denied that the information was real, though experts said otherwise. On Wednesday, the company backpedaled, admitting at least some of it was genuine.

The new data is a 20 GB archive that reportedly contains information about the company and internal emails -- not customer information.

A representative for Avid Life Media did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post.
