If you pay attention to the news like we do, then you've probably heard about a number of computer hacks that have taken place over the last year. From hacks on company servers to websites, computer hacking can be devastating because it can negatively impact lives. This was perhaps best exemplified recently after the hack on the website called Ashley Madison.
Some of our Gaithersburg readers may have heard about the hack, which resulted in the release of hundreds of thousands of names and email addresses of people who used the site. For many, this was a concerning enough fact because it could lead to issues such as identity theft. But what made this hack so devastating was the fact that Ashley Madison is a dating website specifically for married people looking to cheat on their spouses.
