The hack news continues.
Last week a hacker group known only as the Impact Team released a list of users' personal information on the site Ashley Madison — a site known for married people looking to have an affair.
Since then, we've learned Josh Duggar as well as a famous Youtuber both had accounts.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg and neither are great examples of the effect the leaked information has had on married couples and families.

Not only has the hack been the cause of several extortion crimes but it's led to two unconfirmed reports of suicides in Canada as well.
Bryce Evans, the Toronto Police acting staff-Superintendent said the hack is having an "enormous social and economic fallout." Evans continued by saying,
"This hack is one of the largest data breaches in the world. This is affecting all of us. The social impact behind this leak, we're talking about families, we're talking about children, we're talking about wives, their male partners."
Though he didn't give any more information regarding the suicides, he did also mention that there were some hate crimes that might be connected to the hack as well but didn't provide any further details.
He did address the hackers saying what they did was
"illegal and will not be tolerated."
Don't get us wrong, we think that anyone who signed up for this site is pretty deceiving and is in need of a serious morality check, but it doesn't mean that hate or violence of any kind is the answer!
We just hope that everyone can get through this without anyone being physically harmed.
