Adultery website Ashley Madison is being investigated by the FTC
Ashley Madison encouraged its users to cheat on their partners. But did it also cheat its own customers?
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is reportedly investigating the service, which suffered a devastating hack last year that exposed details of millions of customers who signed up in the hope of engaging in extramarital affairs.
Avid Life Media, which owns Ashley Madison, told the New York Times Tuesday it doesn’t know the focus of the inquiry. But the company said it’s been sharing information with the the FTC since last August when the breach took place.
