Ashley Madison breach victims could receive $3,500 each in settlement

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Ashley Madison users whose personal information was compromised when the site was hacked in 2015 could receive $3,500 as part of the company’s settlement in a class-action lawsuit.

The Consumerist website pointed out that a settlement must still be approved by a Federal judge, but Ashley Madison’s parent company, Ruby Corp., has agreed to pay $1.65 million.

The lawsuit claims that the company failed to use adequate security measures and made misleading claims about its security.

Ashley Madison is a site that claims to facilitate adultery.

Nearly 36 million users’ information was compromised during the breach.

Additional details – including a copy of the settlement – are available on The Consumerist website.
