Web security company Krebson Security stated on their website on Sunday that a team of hackers called “The Impact Team” announced that they had successfully infiltrated the databases of Canadian-based Avid Life Media (ALM) and accessed user information, credit card information and emails from the company’s subsidiaries Ashley Madison and Established Men, a website aimed at connecting young beautiful women with wealthy older men.
