    El escándalo por la difusión de los nombres de millones de infieles que usan una página web para dicho fin no deja de crecer.

    At least five lawsuits seeking class-action status have been filed over the hack of the cheating website Ashley Madison, according to North American court records, NBC News reported.

    Four federal suits had been filed in the United States as of Monday — two in California, one in Texas and one in Missouri — seeking more than a half-billion dollars.

    None of the suits has yet been certified as a class action covering the reported 37 million members of Ashley Madison, whom they characterize as having suffered humiliation and harassment over the reported publication of delicate personal information — including credit card data and, in some cases, photos and sexual fantasies — by hackers calling themselves Impact Team.

    The data purportedly published by Impact Team has yet to be independently confirmed as authentic.
