Question of the day

Jul 12, 2015

Our last question asked: What infamous "dating" web site (if you can call it that!) reportedly was recently hacked? That would be Ashley Madison, which is, of course, a web site for philanderers. Now that's an awkward data leak.

Kudos to Jeanne Kirk for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Charlotte LoBuono, Bridget O'Brian (who adds "and it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of adulterers"), Anita Ferrer (who follows up with "Sorry, cheaters"), Dan Rosenbaum (who tacks on "Not that I've ever heard of her. Who did you say again? Ashley Who? What?"), Greg Miller, Becky Yerak, News NY and LI, Chris Lombardi (who notes that the site's name "sounds like a porn name out of one of those Buzzfeed quizzes"), Waterfield Designs (where they admit they are "Never in favor of hacking, but better this than another"), Ken Walker (whose answer was "Schadenfreude. Er, I mean Ashley Madison"), Bailey McGowan (who predicts "things just got a whole lot more awkward"), Hollywood Highlands, Judyth Mermelstein and Anjo Thomas for all getting that exactly right, too. Shout out, again, to Margo Howard for jokingly responding, "Dolly Madison, which I think is not quite right."

As for today's question, here it is: Speaking of hacking, Wired journalist recently experimented with a frightening idea by letting hackers infiltrate ... what?
