A new much larger data dump of the Ashley Madison hack has been released on the dark web.
Ashley Madison hackers released another 20GB data archive onto the dark net. This is twice as much as in the release earlier this week. It is not clear yet if the new data contains more user data or only internal documents.

According to Motherboards, the hacker say in the signature of the package: "Hey Noel, you can admit it's real now."
With Noel they refer to Avid Life Media CEO Noel Biderman. It is interesting that they just use the first name. The hack attack has something personal to it. The hacker group has criticized the Ashley Madison to support infidelity, but there could be also personal reasons for the attack.
So far the hackers appear to be in control. The FBI is hunting them since a month, but no success.
As reported several sites have sprung up that allow users to search the leaked user data. Ashley Madison did not verify email addresses. This means if there is a match, it does not mean that this is the person.

If there is additional user data in the new leaked data archive, than the Ashley Madison Search Engines need updating.
