Flower Market Booms as Online Adulterers Exposed


AshleyMadison, the website that specialises in facilitating adulterous affairs has had its 37 million strong customer database hacked. The customer details stolen by a group calling themselves “The Impact Team” include names, address, credit card details, sexual fantasies and pictures. The Impact Team hackers are threatening to release all the data unless AshleyMadison is shut down, though Techno suspects they are simply lapping up the free publicity and plan to sell the credit card numbers.

The “I’m very, very sorry” flower industry is already getting in on the act.

Quote of the Day

Dr Alexander Kogan, the app developer who originally harvested the Facebook data, said…

“I think what Cambridge Analytica has tried to sell is magic and made claims this is incredibly accurate and it tells you everything there is to tell about you. But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
