Your significant other may have something to tell you soon.

Hackers of the website AshleyMadison.com — an Internet-dating platform dedicated to setting up illicit sexual liaisons for married folks — has made public millions of its members’ names, credit card transactions, and email addresses.

“Ashley Madison is the most famous name in infidelity and married dating,” the platform’s website boasts. “Have an affair today on Ashley Madison. Thousands of cheating wives and cheating husbands signup everyday looking for an affair…. With Our affair guarantee package we guarantee you will find the perfect affair partner.”

Releasing a sizable 10 GB worth of data, the Daily Beast reports that 36 million email addresses for 33 million accounts were involved in the leak — some believed to be members of National Security Agency (NSA), Department of Justice (DOJ), and Australian and British governments officials.

While the story of this potential hack has loomed for months now, according to Gizmodo, Ashley Madison’s parent company, Avid Life Media, refused to yield to the hackers’ threats to shut down the website. Even as late as Tuesday, Ashley Madison’s chief technology officer, Raja Bhatia, said that there is no proof that this leak is legitimate.

However, it looks like some folks are taking this incident quite seriously — as CBS’ Justice and Homeland Security producer Andy Triay tweeted, the FBI is investigating this large-scale breach.

    As a person who works his way through the coloring book of life, trying to keep my crayons within the lines, I am ecstatic about this. Good on ye’, hackers. And to the exposed cheaters, ye reap what ye sow.

    When I saw the commercials advertising the aforementioned website, I wasn’t sure if it was a joke or not. But after a brief search, I found out the site was legit, and offered what it claimed.

    I don’t condone hacking, but, in this case, I look the other way.
