Hundreds of bankers may have used their work email addresses to register for the adultery website AshleyMadison.com, MarketWatch found after searching data provided by security researcher Robert Graham.
MarketWatch reports that hackers on Tuesday unleashed the purported email and street addresses, phone numbers and credit-card details of about 36 million people represented as users of the adultery website AshleyMadison.com.
MarketWatch searched through the email addresses, as provided by Graham, who owns Atlanta-based Errata Security, and found at least 665 emails associated with big banks.
The Hill reported that the leak appears to include more than 15,000 government and military emails.
Here are the financial institutions MarketWatch searched, and how many associated email addresses they found — bearing in mind that they cannot verify the accuracy of the data:
