Up to five million Ticketmaster customers in Australia and New Zealand could be affected by a massive global hack of the popular ticket-selling platform. 

Dark web group Shiny Hunters has allegedly stolen the personal information of 560 million people who have used Ticketmaster or its parent company Live Nation worldwide.

The notorious hacking group is demanding a ransom of $US500,000 ($750,000) on the dark web.

It is not yet known if Australians are caught up in the data breach but there are believed to be more than five million Ticketmaster and Live Nation customers in Australia and New Zealand alone.

If the information is breached, it could cause enormous problems for those people caught up in the hack, including financial fraud and identity theft.

The Department of Home Affairs is aware of the hack and is working with Ticketmaster to ‘understand the incident’.

Ticketmaster is a subsidiary of Live Nation, operating in 32 countries around the world.

Shiny Hunters is a group that has been responsible for high-profile data breaches and is the owner of Breach Forums, a platform for known for cybercrime activities, according to HackRead.com.

This is not the first time that Australians have been affected by the group’s activities.

Nearly 200,000 Pizza Hut Australia customers had their data leaked in September last year.

The FBI tried to shutdown the forum, but Shiny Hunters were able to reclaim the domain, evading law enforcement.

Recently, the US Department of Justice filed an antitrust lawsuit to break up an alleged monopoly in the live music industry between concert promoter Live Nation Entertainment and Ticketmaster.

News Corp reported the lawsuit claimed Live Nation abused its dominant market position to raise ticket fees, squeeze out competitors and limit choices for fans, venues and artists.

US Attorney-General Merrick Garland said Live Nation relied on unlawful, anticompetitive conduct to exercise its monopolistic control over the live events industry in the US at the cost of fans, artists, smaller promoters and venue operators.

‘It is time to break up Live Nation,’ he said.

Daily Mail Australia approached Ticketmaster for comment.
