How to Download Ashley Madison Dump?
Couple of months ago Ashley Madison (a dating website for cheaters) has suffered a massive breach, leading to stealing private information about its users including passwords, interests and much more.
The hacker group called “Impact Team” stated that if Ashley Madison didn’t shut down, it would expose the databases and information hacked from the popular online cheating site. Today it was confirmed that a hack was genuine and cheating husbands will start biting their nails.
A huge trove of data nearly 10 gigabytes in size was dumped onto the Deep Web. Ashley Madison torrent was also shared on Torrent file-sharing services over the past 48 hours. According to a story at Wired.com, included in the files are names, addresses and phone numbers apparently attached to AshleyMadison member profiles, along with credit card data and transaction information. Links to the files were preceded by a text file message titled “Time’s Up” (see screenshot below).
Security researcher Brian Krebs had an interview with Chief Technology Officer of AshleyMadison.com Raja Bhatia, who claimed that:
On a daily basis, we’re seeing 30 to 80 different claimed dumps come online, and most of these dumps are entirely fake and being used by other organizations to capture the attention that’s been built up through this release. In total we’ve looked at over 100GB of data that’s been put out there. For example, I just now got a text message from our analysis team in Israel saying that the last dump they saw was 15 gigabytes. We’re still going through that, but for the most part it looks illegitimate and many of the files aren’t even readable
AshleyMadison.com didn’t admit yet that the huge dump was real, however the truth is that 10 gigabyte data dumb includes much more information than anyone could ever imagine. Researchers find such amount of huge data unusual but some of them have already found user names, first and last names, and hashed passwords for 33 million accounts, partial credit card data, street names, and phone numbers for huge numbers of users, records documenting 9.6 million transactions, and 36 million email addresses.
Regardless of ethics, this is a massive data breach where attackers had full and maintained access to a large percentage of Ashley Madison’s organization undetected for a long period of time. Ashley Madison has not commented on the original source of the breach, how it occurred, or how they were compromised.

help…… the pc i use is running through a proxy…..(Eset) end point security, it wont let me visit peer to peer sites…..so no downloading AM data…..no torrent…….can i get the data anyother way ?
I tried Sublime text 3 and it crashes or never finishs even if i left it run overnight and turned off my power saver. Tried downloading My SQl….its a project in itself. One blogger said Wordpad worked. Its at 93% in just 10 minutes. Keeping fingers crosssed. Ill try changiing filename to csv and try Excel next.
How can i download the file
Once you uncompress the file (unzip, gzip, winzip..whatever works for you), use a command line program like grep — there’s binaries for windows out there. Within the credit transactions directory, I like to use this command on linux (will work on cygwin)– which does wildcard and ignores case and drops the data into a file:
grep -i “BOB.*SMITH” * | grep -i “broadway” | grep -i “\”CA\”” > SOMEFILENAME.csv — which in general gets me every Bob Smith, regardless of middle initial with a Broadway address in California and drops the data into a csv, which can then be loaded in Excel or text editor for consuming
i can personally confirm!
i opened the dump files with sub mile text 3
it takes time to procces, i got a pretty decent cpu and gpu. here are the specs
Gpu? Do you really think gpu makes any difference? Anyone with a 4 year old i5 with onboard video, a SSD and just 8Gb of ram will “procces” this as fast or faster than you.
Ok…I am no computer wizard, so please forgive my extreme ignorance! I downloaded the file & opened it with sublime text 3, but only the first few names came out readable (not crazy characters).
WordPad can read .dump files – spread the word!
WinRAR works easily to view files and quickly
changing the file name to .csv and opening it with Excel worked for me..the email file is horizontal – so the data flows to the right – so it only goes 500 or so records downward, but it reaches capacity to the right – which makes me think some of the data is missing by opening it up in excel. The data is truncated to the extreme right of the spreadsheet – anybody else notice this? The best way to work with this data is in a GAS type of application like IDEA or ACL …
Free File Viewer worked
change the file type from .dump to .csv and open it with excel.
Is it legal to download the torrnet?
Depends on your place of residence and local laws.
If I live in the U.S. Is there anyway the govt can track me downloading it?
yup none of those work. Do I need to do this in Linux? would prefer to do this in Windows? Is there a SQL viewer?
You can add .dump to MYSQL database too. But remember since it is a large file it will take too much resources.
I can confirm that Sublime Text 3 opens these dumps, however since dumps are very large and email dump is about 2GBs, opening this file will require a computer with good performance rate.
How do I open the .DUMP files in what appears to be the almost 10GB legitimate A.M. Hack info dump?
You can open .DUMP files with notepad or you can download Sublime Text 3. Soon we will allows anyone to search .DUMP and find out if their account has been compromised. Have a safe day online and stay tuned!
Problem is, Notepad says its too large to open, and Sublime Text doesn’t do anything…
the files are too big for notepad. How do you open the files with Sublime Text 3?
Neither Notepad nor Sublime worked for me. Notepad returned a message telling me that the dump file is too large, and Sublime didn’t show anything when I used it to open the dump file. Any alternatives?
Opening the dump in sublime will take a long time, I have a high performance pc and it’s about 5 mins running now, only about 1/4 of the way there.
If you look there is a very faint loading bar across the middle of the screen.
Thanks for those of you whom have shared ways to open. I had downloaded Sql 2014 and tried to figure that out and that was way over my head lol… damn password error.. anyway.. going to see if this works now.
