Emails sent by the founder of infidelity website AshleyMadison.com appear to have been exposed in a second, larger release of data stolen from its parent company, cyber security experts confirmed Thursday.The data dump by hackers who have attacked the site appears to include email messages linked to Noel Biderman, founder and chief executive officer of its Toronto-based parent company Avid Life Media.The U.S. Defense Department and Postal Service is also investigating the alleged use of military and other government email accounts on the site.Since the hack last month, Avid Life has indefinitely postponed the adultery site's IPO plans.A report in Vice Media's online technology site Motherboard, which first reported the new data dump, said the release bore the same fingerprints as Tuesday's release."These guys are very diligent about not being caught," said Erik Cabetas, managing partner of Include Security, who has done forensic work on the initial dump.The release includes source code for the website as well as smartphone apps and proprietary company data, he added.
