Hackers Threaten to Release Names, Nude Photos of Ashley Madison Users

Millions of cheating spouses may soon be caught by their husbands and wives.

Hackers are threatening to release information about more than 37 million people who use Ashley Madison, a dating website for cheating spouses.

The hackers, known as The Impact Team, have warned that they will release the names, nude photos and sexual fantasies of Ashley Madison users unless the website is shut down.

Avid Life Media, which owns Ashley Madison, confirmed the security breach.

"We apologize for this unprovoked and criminal intrusion into our customers' information," Avid Life said.

People in Charlotte may be impacted more than those in other cities. According to information released by Ashley Madison before the hack, Charlotte ranked tenth on the website's list of cities with the most adultery.

The site says roughly 65,400 of its members are in Charlotte. That's nearly 3% of the population in the Queen City.

About 75% of them identified themselves as either married of "attached."
