A notorious hacking scandal hasn't deterred more than 4 million people from joining cheating website Ashley Madison.
According to the site, as of Tuesday more than 43.4 million members are currently registered, up from around 39 million at the time of the hacking in July.
Ashley Madison declined to comment.
Personal information from more than 32 million users was compromised in the July hack, leading to dozens of class-actions suits from customers who claimed the site failed to protect their data.
The Impact Team, the hackers who claimed responsibility for the cybersecurity hack, said its reason for the attack was that Ashley Madison had lied to users when it said it would remove personal details from its sites for a $19 fee.
"Full Delete (paid delete) netted [Ashley Madison] $1.7M in revenue in 2014. It's also a complete lie," the hacking group claimed in a manifesto, according to Krebs on Security, the site that first reported the hack. "Users almost always pay with credit card; their purchase details are not removed as promised, and include real name and address, which is of course the most important information the users want removed."
Ashley Madison denied allegations in a statement back in July, saying that "the 'paid-delete' option offered by AshleyMadison.com does in fact remove all information related to a member's profile and communications activity."
