"The Day Someone Signed Me Up For An Ashley Madison Account (That Day Would Be Yesterday)"


Yesterday afternoon, I got a message telling me "Welcome to Day 1 of your Ashley Madison Experience." Someone using my email signed me up, using the rather creative account name "masnicator." I'm kinda surprised that Ashley Madison is still even allowing online signups (let alone not using an email verification system, or for that matter even keeping the site up at all). But, perhaps even more ridiculous is that in the "welcome" email, it highlights how the service is "100% Secure."

Perhaps even more amusing is that just three minutes after this fake registration, I also got a fake message from someone.
