Find out if your email is part of the Ashley Madison hack – The Verge
Data from the Ashley Madison hack is now available in easily searchable form, after being released to torrent sites last night. Using a form site from cynic.al or Trustify, users can confirm whether specific emails are included in the database.
That confirmation only indicates that an email was entered into the database, and many such accounts may have remained unused after signup. Other sites are also including credit card data, location, and any sexual preferences included as part of the leak. The compromised data only includes emails input before July 11th of this year, so any signups after that date won’t be included. The total dump includes data for 36 million accounts, roughly two thirds of which have an associated email address.
