The owner of the Ashley Madison infidelity website, which was hacked in July 2015, has offered a settlement to the people suing the company.

Over the weekend the owner of the Ashley Madison site agreed to pay $11.2 million to settle USA litigation brought on behalf of roughly 37 million United States users whose personal details were exposed in a July 2015 data breach.

Lawsuits against the company alleged that Ashley Madison used inadequate data security practices and failed to protect user information, a serious issue especially concerning the nature of the service. It also said the data breach resulted in the release of account holders' personal information, including those who paid a fee to have their information deleted from the website.

"Hackers had stolen 37 million records of customers, which apparently included "all the customers" secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions".

Second-born boys more likely to commit crime
Doyle and his colleagues found that second-borns (usually boys) are more prone to have a rebellious side compared to their older siblings.

Under the proposed settlement, Ruby - which does not admit any wrongdoing - will pay a total of $11.2 million to a settlement fund that will provide, among other things, payments to settlement class members. On Friday, they company reached a tentative settlement with potential plaintiffs, to the tune of $11.2 million. Ashley Madison has long courted attention with its claim to be the Internet's leading facilitator of extramarital liaisons, boasting that "thousands of cheating wives and cheating husbands sign up every day looking for an affair".

The FTC previously described engager profiles as fakes "created by [Ashley Madison] staff who communicate with consumers in the same way that consumers would communicate with each other - as a way to engage or attract additional consumers to AshleyMadison.com".

The company says that since July 2015, it has implemented "numerous remedial measures" to boost the security of customers' data.
