Ticketmaster, Ticketek Australia breached, HHS notification change

This is the same threat actor group who breached the Spanish bank Santander around the same time.
The third-party vendor in question, cloud storage provider Snowflake has denied that its products were to blame for the Ticketmaster breach, or the Santander Bank, for that matter.
When asked by The Guardian news outlet whether the third-party vendor in question was Snowflake, representatives from Ticketek remained tight-lipped.
They did add that Ticketek customer credit card information and transactions are processed via a separate payment system, which has not been impacted.
This reversal from the Department of Health and Human Services is an update from an April 19 FAQ page that stated every organization affected by the Change Healthcare hack would have to file their own breach notices with federal and state regulators.
This had apparently angered the staff of thousands of hospitals, clinics and doctor's offices who are still working through the damage caused by the attack.
The U.S. Department of Justice said on Wednesday said that it dismantled this largest botnet ever, consisting of 19 million infected devices.
The botnet was leased to other threat actors and operated in 190 countries, which is pretty much every country in the world.
It functioned as a residential proxy service known as 911 S5. A 35-year-old Chinese national was arrested in Singapore on May 24, 2024, accused of being the botnet's admin from 2014 to July 2022.
Kaspersky has announced the released a new virus removal tool for the Linux platform, named KVRT. This tool is a standalone scanner as opposed to a real-time threat detector, allowing users to scan and remove malware and other known threats for free.
