Amazon And GoDaddy Sued Over The Ashley Madison Data Leak

The lawsuits over the Ashley Madison data leak are starting to pile up. The company itself is already being sued, now a trio of anonymous AM users are going after the companies that are hosting the stolen data as well.

Three anonymous Ashley Madison users are suing Amazon Web Services and GoDaddy for allegedly hosting websites that leaked the affair site's customer data to the masses. In the Arizona federal court filing posted by The Register, the John Does said they are suing the companies for "intentionally inflicting emotional distress upon Ashley Madison users."
