Ticketmaster Hacked—Half A Billion Concert-Goers Allegedly Affected | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

Ticketmaster has reportedly been hacked.

Recently, Ticketmaster has been in hot water with concert-goers. Ever Since Live Nation merged with Ticketmaster in 2010, it has created a monopoly, making attending concerts increasingly tricky. Ticketmaster has been called out for ticket buyers’ ongoing struggles with bots, scalpers, sky-high prices, dynamic pricing, etc.

Last week, the U.S. Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit against Ticketmaster, intending to break up the ticketing conglomerate’s alleged monopoly. Yet, while this is ongoing, a hacker group has now targeted Ticketmaster and its customers.

According to Hackread and Cyber Daily, “notorious hacker group” ShinyHunters claimed to have stolen around 560 million Ticketmaster customers’ data from Ticketmaster. Their goal is to sell the “1.3 terabyte-sized trove of data for a one-time price of $500,000 on a popular hacking forum.” 

Unfortunately, this breach allegedly includes Ticketmaster users’ full names, phone numbers, email addresses, order history information, ticket purchase details, addresses, and even “partial payment data which includes names, the last four digits of their credit card numbers, and card expiration dates.”

Both Mashable and ShinyHunters attempted to contact Ticketmaster about the reported breach but have not received a response at the time of writing. In the meantime, you might want to update your passwords, delete your credit card info, or even delete your accounts (unless you currently have concert tickets).
