Ashley Madison offers $380,000 ($380K) reward for ‘actionable’ information on Hackers responsible for massive data-leak.

Ashley Media’s parent company is offering a $500,000 reward for information about the hackers who breached its network and leaked data on millions of customers.

Sourced through from:

Avid Life Media is offering a $500,000 reward to anyone providing information that leads to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for the leak of the Ashley Madison database.”  • Bryce Evans, Toronto police superintendent. . 

Avid Life media workers first-learn of the breach July 12, 2015; as employees log-in to their computers and are confronted by a message from the hackers.  Although Bryce does not indicate what the message says, specifically,  he says it’s to the tune of AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck.’

AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ is the same song played at a hack in 2012 on computers at an Iranian nuclear facility.. This doesn’t mean that the same-hackers are behind both breaches. The Avid Life Media hackers could be using the same song.

*In the hack against Iran, the hackeres use a worm (virus) that infect computers at 2 facilities in Natanz and Fordo that are used to enrich uranium hexafluouride gas.
