The Ashley Madison data breach debacle continues to roll on, however is a $11.2 million fine sufficient considering that 37 million people were potentially affected? That works out at 30 cents per user, which would not appear to be much compensation for an incident that could lead to serious consequences, regardless of the morality of the service Ashley Madison provides.
Ashley Madison is still picking up the pieces two years after the massive data breach that exposed millions of users' information. The parent company of the cheat-on-your-spouse website continues to deny any wrongdoing, but it has agreed to settle the preliminary class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of 37 million users whose personal details were dumped onto the dark web. Ruby Corp is ready to pay $11.2 million for the settlement, though the amount still has to be approved by a federal judge in St. Louis.
