The Ashley Madison website hack has many people who were looking for someone other than their spouse in the hot seat.
Personal information from the website that helps married people cheat was recently stolen. Now, those hacked details are online, including names, email addresses, street addresses, some financial information and even the sexual preferences of a reported 32 million customers.
Some New Orleans residents find themselves on this list.
