Ticketmaster confirms customer data breach

Live Nation Entertainment has confirmed what everyone has been speculating on for the last week: Ticketmaster has suffered a data breach.
The third party it refers to is likely Snowflake, a cloud company used by thousands of companies to store, manage, and analyze large volumes of data.
On May 27, 2024, a criminal threat actor offered what it alleged to be Company user data for sale via the dark web.
We are working to mitigate risk to our users and the Company, and have notified and are cooperating with law enforcement.
As appropriate, we are also notifying regulatory authorities and users with respect to unauthorized access to personal information.
The user data likely refers to the sales ad for 560 million customers' data that was posted online earlier this week by a group calling themselves ShinyHunters.
The data was advertised for $500,000 and says it includes customer names, addresses, emails, credit card details, order information, and more.
Bleeping Computer says it spoke to ShinyHunters who said they already had interested buyers, and believed one of the buyers that approached them was Ticketmaster itself.
Ticketmaster says it has begun notifying its users of the breach.
For now, Ticketmaster users should keep an eye on their credit and bank accounts for an unauthorized transactions and follow our general data breach tips below.
There are some actions you can take if you are, or suspect you may have been, the victim of a data breach.
Every breach is different, so check with the vendor to find out what's happened, and follow any specific advice they offer.
You can make a stolen password useless to thieves by changing it.
Choose a strong password that you don't use for anything else.
Let a password manager choose one for you.
Some forms of two-factor authentication can be phished just as easily as a password.
It's definitely more convenient to get sites to remember your card details for you, but we highly recommend not storing that information on websites.
Identity monitoring alerts you if your personal information is found being traded illegally online, and helps you recover after.
While the Ticketmaster data is yet to be published in full, it's likely you've had other personal information exposed online in previous data breaches.
You can check what personal information of yours has been exposed with our Digital Footprint portal.
