Ashley Madison, a website for people looking to have affairs, was hacked on Monday by a group calling themselves the Impact Team, and Twitter is having a field day on the cheaters' behalf.
The hackers claim to have obtained personal details, naked selfies and the sexual fantasies of 37 million people, including up to one million Brits. By our calculations, that means that 1.5% of the population are quaking in their boots today.
The website, which ironically boasts a 'Trusted Security Award' and a 100% discreet service, is working with police to fix the problem.
But in the meantime, people have taken to Twitter to tell the users of Ashley Madison that they're about to get what's coming to them, and it's pretty hilarious...

Isn't #AshleyMadison a place for researching baby names? That's what my wife told me when she was pregnant with my daughter Tinder anyway— Gabriel Rutledge (@gaberutledge) July 20, 2015
Don't care about this #AshleyMadison thing, but if the Dominos or Eat 24 websites ever get hacked, I will be soooo embarrassed.— Lon Harris (@Lons) July 20, 2015

it's incredible how people who can't be trusted can trust a site for people who can't be trusted ... #ashleymadison— ximad (@ximad) July 20, 2015
