NEW YORK - The parent company of Ashley Madison, a matchmaking website for cheating spouses, says it was hacked and that the personal information of some of its users was posted online.

Toronto-based Avid Life Media Inc. says it has had the hackers' posts, which included personal information, taken down and has hired a technology security firm. The company and law enforcement are investigating.

The breach was first reported late Sunday by Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security, a website that focuses on cybersecurity.

Avid Life, which also operates matchmaking websites under the CougarLife and Established Men brands, says it has 40 million members around the world.
