Hacked data claimed to have triggered suicide


Two Ashley Madison clients are reported to have taken their lives after hackers published their details according to police in Canada.

The force held a news conference about their investigation into the website hack at Toronto Police Headquarters.

Ashley Madison’s parent company Avid Life Media is offering a $500,000 (£240,000) reward for information leading to the arrest of the hackers.

Over 33m account details were stolen.

“As of this morning we have two unconfirmed reports of suicides associated with the leak of Ashley Madison’s customers’ profiles,” said acting staff superintendent Bryce Evans.
