Ashley Madison Clients Stupidly Used Work Email

Thousands of Ashley Madison customers used their work email address to manage their cheater accounts, according to The Associated Press. 

Who would be stupid enough to do that?

Well, 15,000 military and government personnel-that’s who! The AP traced the leaked Madison accounts and learned their customers included employees of the White House, congress and law enforcement agencies. 

There were two assistant U.S. Attorneys, an information technology administrator at the Executive Office of the President, a division chief, an investigator, a trial attorney in the Justice Department, a government hacker at Homeland Security Department (boy that one had to hurt) and another DHS employee on the U.S. counterterrorism response team.

While few actually paid for their services using their work accounts, they did use their internet connections allowing AP to review their credit card transactions leading to identification.
