One Quebec bachelor has volunteered to be named as the plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against Ashley Madison, as the company’s data breach continues to make waves.
The class action lawsuit was filed in Quebec last week — one of several against the Toronto-based company Avid Life Media that owns the website famous for offering to set users up with discrete extramarital affairs.

Of the 37-million subscribers to the online cheating site AshleyMadison (AM) the quest for an extramarital affair may turn into panic and despair thanks to a team of hackers threatening to expose customer sexual fantasy profiles and matching credit card transactions.
Subscribers logging in this week were shocked to learn that hackers found a weakness at Avid Life Media (ALM), the Toronto based firm that owns AM, and randomly lifted sensitive user information, believed to be deleted, leaking some of it online. Also stolen were maps of internal company servers, employee network account information, company bank account data and salary information.
While the fantasies may be imagined, the names and addresses from credit card transactions are real.
