Ashley Madison has added 4 million users since its massive hack this summer

According to a rolling count on infidelity dating site Ashley Madison’s home page, the user base of the site has increased by nearly 4 million users ever since the massive data breach earlier this year.

The rolling count on the Ashley Madison homepage has revealed that the infidelity dating site had 39 million users when it was hit by the massive hack -- which exposed the identities of nearly 32 million users -- this summer. That number has now increased to a whopping 43.3 million users.

Though the rolling count on the Ashley Madison homepage clearly shows a notable customer growth after the infamous hacking episode, a spokesman for Avid Life Media – the parent company of Ashley Madison – has refrained from making any comments on the growing ranks of Ashley Madison members.

The Avid Life Media spokesman said that the adultery website had not provided any update since its last statement released on August 31, 2015.

In its last public statement in August, Ashley Madison had said that media reports predicting a possible demise of the website after the hack were "greatly exaggerated." In that statement, Ashley Madison had also said that "last week alone, women sent more than 2.8 million messages within our platform;" and added: "These numbers are the main reason that Ashley Madison is the number one service for people seeking discreet relationships."
