Celebrities Revealed in Cheat Hack

Ashley Madison, the infamous dating site for people looking for extramarital affairs, is the subject of a new Netflix documentary – as is its 2015 hack.

Currently streaming, “Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies & Scandal” details the rise and fall of the dating site for cheaters, as well as the infamous data breach when unknown hackers leaked the private information of more than 30 million people. users.

It was one of the biggest hacks in internet history and it wreaked havoc on countless families. It also revealed many celebrities who were clients of Ashley Madison, like then-reality TV star (and, since then, convicted sex offender) Josh Duggar.

A new Netflix documentary looks back at the Ashley Madison scandal, which revealed celebrities were cheaters.

To make matters even more disturbing, to this day, no one knows who committed the hack.

Documentary director Toby Paton told the Post: “It’s a fascinating aspect of the whole story. The cybersecurity expert we spoke to said it was extremely unusual to have a sophisticated, high-profile (hack) and the person who did it had never done anything before and had never nothing done since. It really seemed to me that this was an isolated case. »

He added that he believed the culprit was connected to Ashley Madison “and had some sort of inside knowledge of how the company worked.” But beyond that, I really don’t think anyone knows.

“Whoever did it did an extraordinarily good job of keeping their head down,” Paton said.

Rader, a YouTube vlogger known for his videos about his family and Christian values, is the only high-profile Ashley Madison user who agreed to participate in the documentary and share her story on screen.

As Paton told the Post: “I didn’t expect it to be this difficult (finding people willing to talk), considering it was nine years ago. Many of the people whose names were revealed (in the 2015 hack) would have either repaired (their relationships) or their marriages would have ended. So I figured with so much water under the bridge, it would be easier to find people willing to come and talk.

On screen, Rader details how he signed up for Ashley Madison and cheated on his wife, Nia.

Interviewing Sam was “particularly tense and difficult” for Paton because “it’s not easy to come on camera and talk about things you’ve done that you’re ashamed of.” »

When the convicted sex offender and “19 Kids and Counting” star’s name was released on the list, he issued a public apology and admitted to cheating on his wife.

While espousing faith and family values, I secretly watched pornography on the Internet over the past few years and it became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife. I am so ashamed of the double life I have lived and grieve for the hurt, pain and shame my sin has caused my wife and family, and especially Jesus and all those who profess their faith in him.

Duggar is currently in prison, convicted of child pornography. His wife, Anna, is still married to him.
