Tickmaster Data breach

Huge Ticketmaster data breach could affect half a billion customers

A notorious hacker group says it is selling the personal details of millions of Ticketmaster customers. Cybercriminal collective ‘ShinyHunters’ is offering the data for sale for US$500,000 (around £394,000). The data is listed for sale on a popular hacking forum.  

Ticketmaster has yet to confirm whether it has experienced another major data breach. The company previously suffered a massive data hack in 2018. Following that breach, Ticketmaster was fined £1.25 million by the UK’s data protection watchdog. The ticketing giant also settled a mass compensation claim by affected customers in 2022.  

Details about the latest hack are currently unclear. However, we do know that ShinyHunters claims to have stolen 1.3 terabytes of data. To back this up, the hackers have shared a sample of the data online. This sample includes the following customer information:  

  • Names 
  • Addresses 
  • Emails 
  • Phone numbers 
  • Hashed credit card numbers 
  • The last four digits of credit cards 
  • Credit card expiration dates. 

ShinyHunters says it contacted Ticketmaster and demanded a ransom not to release the data, but Ticketmaster did not respond.  

Customers are taking to social media to express their frustrations that Ticketmaster has not yet communicated with them about the breach.
