Hackers who stole information from affairs website 'Ashley Madison' have released the information online - which includes a number of NZ government email addresses.
An estimated 70,000 Kiwis are suspected to be listed in a 9.7-gigabyte sized file which was posted to anonymous online network, Tor.
It appears to contain the account details of the site's 32 million users, including names, addresses and credit card details.
"We have explained the fraud, deceit, and stupidity of [the site's] members," a message that appeared with the file read. "Now everyone gets to see their data."'
Ashley Madison's slogan is "Life is short - have an affair".
The file contains details of what members were looking for, including one after "someone who isn't happy at home or just bored and looking for excitement", and another who likes "to ravish and be ravished".
The passwords are encrypted, but experts don't believe they will stay that way for long.
RadioLive announcer and Story host Duncan Garner has released a snapshot list of government email account domains, including email accounts from Auckland Transport, NZ Police, and PM.govt.nz
