US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said today that the Pentagon is investigating the recent leak of user data from Ashley Madison. According to The Hill, roughly 15,000 email addresses associated with the US government and military have been found in the initial document dump.

“I’m aware of it, of course it’s an issue, because conduct is very important. We expect good conduct on the part of our people,” Carter told reporters.

The Pentagon’s primary concern regarding the leak likely has to do with the blackmail of service members who may have signed up for Ashley Madison.
