It has been identified that Russian hackers have accomplished a breach of at least 97 websites, some of which are in the similar sphere as Ashley Madison.

Having breached the websites, hackers stole login credentials, therefore releasing personal, sensitive, data, and putting the privacy of thousands in jeopardy.

The company's analysts discovered batches of stolen information which was being stored in a discrete server, which was not protected by a password. This meant that critical data was open to further exposure.

It has been estimated that the breaches began occurring on the 4th July, and ended about a week ago. The data which was discovered within the server included an inclusive list of websites along with their notable software and network vulnerabilities alongside notes that were written in Russian. 

Analysts looking into the breach discovered that a number of websites demonstrated database vulnerabilities which would need hardened cyber security controls implemented in order to protect data from future breaches. It was also encouraged that Breach Detection Solutions be put in place in order to spot intruders within the system.
