Hackers claim to have leaked a massive database of users from Ashley Madison, a matchmaking website for cheating spouses

A number of Vatican addresses are listed among the 37 million users

People working at the Vatican are reportedly among the 37 million users of infidelity website Ashley Madison.

Websites of at least two dozen people with the .va address are among those who had signed up to meet married people for liaisons. There are also 15,000 people with US military addresses and 140 British government workers.

The 9.7 gigabyte file called “Time’s Up!” was posted on the internet by hackers, and includes names ages, addresses, phone numbers and credit card details.

The business works on the promise of anonymity and the motto “Life is short. Have an affair”. The hackers from the “Impact Team” carried it out because they the people are “cheating dirtbags”.

The Ashley Madison website has called it “an act of criminality” and the FBI is now investigating the hack.
