What would you like to do?
Some idiot signed up for Ashley Madison using my email address, and now all those
sites where you can do a search will tell you I'm in there. WTF! So I bittorrented
the whole thing to see what I could find. It's pretty simple really.
aminno_member_email.dump contains:
(33572772,'harryh@gmail.com',1,0,0,0,0,0,0)
That first number is a userid. So then you can look up that id in the other files.
aminno_member.dump contains:
(33572772,1,'7F971BED75D43A1168106BBA9859D83E','203.45.209.141',0,'hairlessharr',

Note the latitude/longitude of: -24.889512, 152.3570681
This is somewhere on the East Coast of Australia: https://goo.gl/maps/CBFmm
That's just about as far away from my home in New York City as you can get
and, incidentally, a place that I've never visited.
Also that IP address (203.45.209.141) is the signupip column. It resolves to
telstra.net which appears to be an Australian ISP of some kind.
I actually remember when this happened. Since I have such a short email
address people sign up for shit using it all the time. Recently I've been
getting a lot of emails about Domino's Pizza orders in Scotland. Once
someone with a Netflix account did it. This was back in the pre streaming
days when they did DVD delivery so I changed their queue from kids movies
to soft core porn. Often times I just delete people's accounts but I
couldn't do that this time without paying that fee Ashley Madison charges
so it got stuck there forever.
In the end it's unlikely to ever matter, but it is a reminder that even
someone like me with way better than average operational security can be
subject to problems in these kinds of data breaches. The future is a
funny place.

The e-mail equivalent of caller-id spoofing. I had a rash of rude, crude, irate and threatening messages upon my return from a vacation. ...and then there was the nice lady who wanted me to have her new phone number, since she was going to be changing it...

Coming from Scotland I couldn't help but chuckle at this a little. Really sucks what you've had to go through though, all because if your chosen email address

Cool story bro, but the underscore in your plug tag is making my skin crawl.

Dude, that sucks!

Home Care Team looks like an awesome program! NY is too far me to drive to work from FL though LOL. Even though those UX positions were appealing.

Curious, did you get any mail back from Netflix where you could see the parents trying to kill somebody over at Netflix.

@bobbydharrel: Come on man.. this is 2015, we don't drive to work, we surf to work with no distance limitations. ;)
