Other senior managers will step in to fill the void left by Mr Biderman’s departure until a new boss is appointed, Avid Life Media said in a statement.

A hacker group identified as the “Impact Team” last week released emails and user account information of members stolen from the company’s servers, as well as corporate emails and sensitive computer source code.

Canadian police have said two suicides may be linked to the leak of the website’s 32 million members’ personal data.
