The online company has had its biggest influx of users since the site opened.

It seems that a few hacks here and there hasn't broken the spirit of the adultery website Ashley Madison. According to a statement from the company, the brand is attracting more and more new members - many of whom identify as female.

Avid Life Media, the company that owns Ashley Madison, said in a statement today that "hundreds of thousands of new users signed up for the Ashley Madison platform in the wake of an unprecedented hack that left as many as 37 million members exposed." Of the new Ashley Madison members, the company said 87,596 are women, according to CBC News.

"Recent media reports predicting the imminent demise of Ashley Madison are greatly exaggerated," a statement from Avid Life Media said. "The company continues its day-to-day operations even as it deals with the theft of its private data by criminal hackers. Despite having our business and customers attacked, we are growing."

This statement came mere moments after Noel Biderman, CEO of Avid Life Media, announced that he was stepping down from his position. Until a new CEO can be announced, the executive board will take over.

"This change is in the best interest of the company and allows us to continue to provide support to our members and dedicated employees. We are steadfast in our commitment to our customer base," a statement posted on Avid Life Media's website said. "We are actively adjusting to the attack on our business and members' privacy by criminals."

The company is offering over $300,000 USD for any information on anyone attached to the hacking that put more than 37 million people on edge. Some of those people included celebrities, reality stars, politicians, and athletes.
