The news comes as following an alleged hack on Ticketmaster which may have resulted in the personal details of more than half a billion customers being stolen.

The hacking group, ShinyHunters, are demanding $500,000 in ransom to prevent the information being sold, the BBC reported. 

Australia’s Department of Home Affairs said it was “working with Ticketmaster to understand the incident”.

According to reports, 560 million global Ticketmaster customers have had their names, addresses, phone numbers and partial payment details accessed and stolen. 

Ticketmaster, which reported a market capitalisation of $18.23bn in 2023, has not yet commented on the hack.
