    The controversy around the Ashey Madison hack is yet to settle down, and the hackers behind the breach seem to have more data to reveal. The hacking group Impact first released 10GB of personal data of millions of users on the dating and affair site, and just a few days after, the team has released a bigger batch of data that is about double the size of previously revealed data.

    The new hack file constitutes source codes for the websites, and has a note saying "Hey Noel, you can admit it's real now." The message is aimed at Avid Life Media's CEO Noel Biderman, and the company's denial for the hacked data to be real.

    The new hacked file also has a file named ‘noel.biderman.mail.7z', which could have the personal data of the CEO. However, Verge says that this file is corrupted and doesn't open, and could be named just to take a dig on the CEO.

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been investigating the hack.

    While the Avid Life Media has not yet acknowledged if the leaked data is real, it can be said that the company has a serious issue to deal with.
