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.
