Hackers say they’ve leaked massive database of Ashley Madison users to the Internet

LONDON — Hackers claim to have leaked a massive list of users from Ashley Madison, a matchmaking website for cheating spouses, saying its owners had refused to bow to their demands to close the site.

A message posted online said “Time’s Up!” and accused parent company Avid Life Media of deceit and incompetence.

“Now everyone gets to see their data,” the statement said.
