Ashley Madison employees came to work and heard AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck' from their PCs after hack It appears that large-scale corporate cyber attacks may have a theme song.
According to the Toronto police, Ashley Madison employees came to work on July 12th and were met with their PCs blasting AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" and their monitors stuck on a 'threatening message' that private data belonging to million of users was soon to be released.

As we all know, earlier this month the attackers released the names, email addresses and more of nearly 50 million cheaters and would-be cheaters as well as emails and financials for the company and employees.

In 2012, it was reported that an Iranian scientist had heard Thunderstruck from his PC following a cyber attack, so is it possible that hackers have a theme song?
