People who claim to be the hackers who broke into the computers of extramarital-affairs website AshleyMadison.com say they have released only a small portion of the data they stole, according to an interview published Friday by Motherboard.
Motherboard, a unit of Vice Media LLC, said the alleged hackers, a group called The Impact Team, wrote in an email interview that they culled more than 300 gigabytes of data from Avid Life Media Inc., the parent company of Ashley Madison. By comparison, a dump of data allegedly taken from Ashley Madison, which appeared online earlier this week, was 9.7 gigabytes.
Avid Life did not respond to requests seeking comment.
In Motherboard’s interview, the alleged hackers said they could put emails from Ashley Madison’s executives online. Ashley Madison confirmed last month that its site was hacked.
