A number of emails belonging to Oireachtas, RTÉ and Gardaí have been found in the Ashley Madison hack
A fun day in work today no doubt.
The Ashley Madison site has caused a stir of controversy since being hacked, and the latest news is an Irish politician's Oireachtas email address has been found on the website's leaked database, along with 16 others from government or state agencies including An Garda Síochána.
The emails were found among a database of 36 million email addresses stolen from the website that helps married people commit adultery, including these 3,260 auld Irish lads... we think.
The leaked information includes millions of email addresses, phone numbers of registered people and payment transactions.
It is not known who used the emails to register on the site as Ashley Madison does not require email verification from its users.
The Journal reported that, from a search of credit card transactions, nobody using the politician's name has been linked to a payment made on the website.
Furthermore, the politician involved in the scandal has denied ever using the website.
Other 'interesting' emails found on the site were four from RTÉ, four from the HSE, two from the Irish Defence Forces and one from An Garda Síochána, one from Departments of Justice and Social Protection.
Following questions from The Journal, RTÉ released a statement saying, "without clear and irrefutable evidence that such breaches occurred we have no further comment."
