Ashley Madison, the website at the center of a major Internet hack last July, is being sued by a Chicago man who wants to keep dating.
According to his lawsuit, Matthew Lisuzzo wants to continue his membership with the, “world’s leading married dating service for discrete[sic] encounters,” but is seeking greater security of his personal financial information.
Lisuzzo’s request for Ashley Madison to reinforce information protection and website security was made in a petition for injunctive relief filed Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court.
The suit states that Ashley Madison’s parent company, Avid Life Media Inc., “failed to notify (Lisuzzo) in a timely manner of the nature and extent of the breach. As a result, (Lisuzzo) was unable to protect himself and suffered resulting damages.”
An Ashley Madison member since 2008, the 40-year-old Lisuzzo is requesting for the Canada-based company to take the necessary steps to strengthen the website’s overall security to prevent more of his information from being exposed.
In addition to Lisuzzo’s request to regain his privacy so he can rejoin the digital dating world, he also wants Ashley Madison to discontinue the thousands of fake female profiles created by ALM employees.
