Trustify has updated their Ashley Madison search tool. According to internationally renowned web security expert, Troy Hunt this is a "positive change." Trustify's choice, according to Hunt, is "publicly now is the right thing to do."
Does he think Trustify is still blasting out those extortionist 'your boss might know' emails? "I don't know" Hunt tweeted back, "You'd need to find someone in the dump in order to check that."

About an hour later someone named Elliot Volkman weighed in, too: "The only emails tied to the search tools are the verification emails.," he said. Although Twitter and Linkedin bios indicate no Trustify affiliation, a Technical.lyDC article by Lalita Clozel refers to him as Trustify's "Head of Content Marketing" and states that Volkman, "recently deleted the messages and made his social media accounts private after receiving death threats." Yikes!
In the article CEO Danny Boice echoed Volkman's claim that Trustify is no longer harvesting email addresses which is another step in the right direction. So now do you trust Trustify?
