Ticketfly: A “Cyber Incident” has exposed 26 million customer’s data

On May 31st the Eventbrite owned company Ticketfly experienced what they determined as a “cyber incident” which left the company taking its services offline for several days after being hacked.

The service resumed on June 2nd but it has come to light that many customers’ data was left exposed by the situation acknowledging in a statement “some customer information has been compromised as part of the incident, including names, addresses, emails, and phone numbers of Ticketfly fans.”

It has now emerged via Pitchfork that Engadget has found that 26 million customers’ data has been affected with many phone numbers, email addresses and home addresses have been leaked on a public forum.

According to Engadget, credit cards and passwords were not part of the compromised data, “but the hacker has threatened to post more data, presumably if their ransom demands are not met.“

So far there has been no further comment from Ticketfly.
