Hackers claim Ticketmaster/Live Nation data breach, more than 500m compromised

An infamous hacking collective is claiming to have 1.3 terabytes of customer data stolen from the entertainment giant.

The ShinyHunters hacking group has shared the details of an alleged hack of Ticketmaster and Live Nation and is selling the data for a one-time price of US$500,000.

The data is for sale on a popular clear web hacking forum, and ShinyHunters is claiming to have the details of 560 million Ticketmaster customers in 16 different folders and files, each dozens of gigabytes in size.

The hackers also shared a sample of the data, which includes hashed credit card numbers, the last four digits of credit cards, credit card expiration dates, and fraud details, as well as customer names, addresses, and emails.

“560 million customers full details (name, address, email, phone),” ShinyHunters said in their post. “Ticket sales, event information, order details.”

The data was posted overnight on May 28, but curiously a second hacker on a different forum – this one Russian – has made an identical post. It is unknown if the second hacker has any links to ShinyHunters.

ShinyHunters has a track record of large-scale data breaches reaching back to May 2022, when it released data belonging to Indonesian eCommerce giant Tokopedia, as well as large volumes of customer data from Microsoft and Wishbone.

In 2022 ShinyHunters leaked the information of 70 million AT&T subscribers, and other victims include Home Chef, StarTribune, and Pixlr. The group’s leader is also the admin of the Breach Forums hacking community, which was recently resurrected on both the clear and dark webs after being seized by the FBI and a team of international law enforcement agencies including the AFP in May 2024.

The group is named after the Pokémon video game franchise.

ShinyHunters told Hackread.com that they have attempted to contact Ticketmaster, but have not had any luck hearing back from them.

Cyber Daily has reached out to Ticketmaster for comment. It is currently unknown if any Australian Ticketmaster customers have been impacted.
