As we've reported, the still-unknown individuals who hacked Ashley Madison
, a website that promotes extramarital hookups, dumped personal and financial data on an estimated 3.2 million users.

, that total could include more than 70,000 people in the metro Denver area
Curious if your spouse is among them? Numerous websites have popped up in recent days that allow you to find out.
The one that's gotten the most attention is AshleyMadisonLeaked.com
, but it's apparently overwhelmed at this writing. We've been unable to get the site to load.

, which states that the hack unleashed approximately 36 million e-mail addresses, some of which are duplicates — and the following screen capture even includes an example of it's creator's online credibility....

To paraphrase the Ashley Madison slogan: Life is short. Find out who'd like to have an affair.
