Hackers who made off with personal data stolen from the Ashley Madison extramarital dating site have leaked the info, but how trustworthy is the data that's been dumped? We discuss the news, as well as potential scams that could emerge as a result of the leak.

Moving onto lighter matters, we chew the fat over a new version of Final Fantasy VII that's been released this week for Apple gadgets, and whether £11.99 to download the vintage title is a rip-off or a worthy investment.
