Josh Duggar isn’t the only person who is going to have his or her life turned upside down by the Ashley Madison hack and data dump. A second leak has been released, and the legal troubles for everyone involved are only getting started.
The Associated Press traced many of the accounts exposed by hackers back to federal workers.
They included at least two assistant U.S. attorneys; an information technology administrator in the Executive Office of the President; a division chief, an investigator and a trial attorney in the Justice Department; a government hacker at the Homeland Security Department and another DHS employee who indicated he worked on a counter-terrorism response team.
AP traced their government Internet connections — logged by the website over five years — and reviewed their credit-card transactions to identify them. They included workers at more than two dozen Obama administration agencies, including the departments of State, Defense, Justice, Energy, Treasury, Transportation and Homeland Security. Others came from House or Senate computer networks
And this particular leak seems to have been specifically designed to prove to Ashley Madison CEO Noel Biderman that the hackers do indeed have access to everything.
