Self-proclaimed Ashley Madison hackers the Impact Team today released what looks like another 20 gigabytes of ill-gotten data. The just-dropped “other shoe” includes emails from the cheater-dating website's CEO.
Just two days ago, the Impact Team posted a 10-gigabyte file said to be from ashleymadison.com.
The second release, accessible initially only for Tor users, includes more personal information about the dating website's users--but notably, this one also includes what look like email folders for several of the company's top executives.
As Wired's Kim Zetter notes, the hackers signed today's message with a PGP key, to validate the identity of the poster.
Wired reported in detail, Ars has coverage too.

Who really cares? I mean why would anyone care about Ashley Madison or who's effing who? Marriage today is bull mostly and society today is hurting in growing pains because massively changing. I remember when salesmen would come by when I was a child trying to sell wild life fact files or encyclopedia Britannica, today you have google n this crap.
Louisiana GOP Executive Director Jason Doré said Thursday that his name was among those released as part of the Ashley Madison data dump earlier this week because he used the site for “opposition research.”
Doré told NOLA.com that an account had been created using his name and former personal credit card information as part of work done by his law firm, Doré Jeansonne.
“As the state's leading opposition research firm, our law office routinely searches public records, online databases and websites of all types to provide clients with comprehensive reports,” Doré told the publication via text message. “Our utilization of this site was for standard opposition research. Unfortunately, it ended up being a waste of money and time.”

I don't suppose anyone cares about the innocent people who will be hurt, or worse, from the fallout of this?
