Cheaters everywhere, watch out.

Despite your careful maneuvering, you may have just been discovered.

Yesterday, hackers claimed to have leaked customer information from AshleyMadison.com, a website for cheaters that boasts the tagline, “Life is short. Have an affair.”

A month ago, hackers threatened they would release customer information if the site didn’t shut down, but no one took them too seriously. Now, we bet some very “sorry” cheaters wish they had acted otherwise.

Nearly 10 gigabytes worth of data, including member account details, logins and payment transaction details were posted to the dark, scary hole that is the worldwide web. According to a report in Wired, the leak was apparently accompanied by a message that looked down upon the site and its members for “fraud, deceit and stupidity.”

Canada-based Ashley Madison claimed to have more than 40 million users at the time of the hack a month ago — yes, that’s 40 million cheaters.

Avid Life Media (that’s Ashley Madison’s owner) may be kicking themselves this morning, along with 40 million individuals who have already been discovered as a cheater, or are just waiting around anxiously to have their dirty secret revealed.

Some would say this is karma, no?

When you’re using your credit card to cheat, maybe you’re just asking for it.
