Daily Mail reports that on Aug. 20, 2015, the Impact Team hackers released a second, even bigger, 20GB cache of files exposing the 37 millions subscribers of the adultery website Ashley Madison (AM), according to Vice.
The Pentagon and the FBI may investigate the data leak, fearing that government AM subscribers may be blackmailed.
The new documents were dumped with a taunting message to the adultery website’s founder, millionaire CEO Noel Biderman: “Hey Noel, you can admit it’s real now.”
The Associated Press traced many of the accounts exposed by hackers back to federal workers and reviewed their credit-card transactions to identify them.

- At least two assistant U.S. attorneys.
- An information technology administrator in the Executive Office of the President
