Hundreds of thousands of people signed up for infidelity website Ashley Madison in the last week, even after hackers leaked data about millions of its clients, the parent company Avid Life said today.
Recent media reports predicting the imminent demise of Ashley Madison are greatly exaggerated. Despite having our business and customers attacked, we are growing."
Earlier this month, hackers released Ashley Madison customer data after demanding the site be shut down. A second data dump contained thousands of emails and other company documents.
The company also hit back at reports that the site had few genuine female users, saying internal data released by hackers had been analysed incorrectly.
"Last week alone, women sent more than 2.8 million messages within our platform," Avid Life said, adding that 87,596 women had also signed up for Ashley Madison last week.
