Over 17,000 Tri-Cities names show up in sex site’s hacked data

Mashable readers who saw the story on how Tecnilogica handled the hacked AshleyMadison data have a universal first reaction.

They search to see how many users the sex site had in their hometown.

Here’s some quick number grabs for the number of Tri-Cities members. According to the story about 85% are male.

Johnson City – 6,282

Kingsport – 4,149

Greeneville – 1,557

Rogersville -1,302

Elizabethton -1,117

Jonesborough – 879

Erwin –  556

Bristol, VA and Bristol TN didn’t show up on the map. But here’s a user sampling of some of the area’s smaller towns:

Blountville – 426

Church Hill – 426

Bulls Gap – 367

Gate City – 276

Piney Flats – 236

Chuckey – 187

Weber City – 55

Walnut Hill – 27

The map, which took eight hours to create, has two layers: gender ratio and number of users in each city. It also takes data hacks and how personal data is protected – or not protected – by internet sites to a new level.

According to Mashable, “The map can’t be used to identify cheaters, though. The company showed mercy to the victims of the AshleyMadison hack by stripping all sensitive data — name, address and email. They also excluded deserted middle-of-nowhere cities where there were less than 10 users who could probably be busted by process of elimination.”
