Thread: Ticketmaster data breach

  1. #1

    Ticketmaster data breach

    Apparently Ticketmaster have been hacked. No details from them yet (it's all over the news though). Isn't Notts ticket site run by Ticketmaster? And I would imagine loads of us have got tickets for other things through Ticketmaster.

    Just be aware folks....

    This website is pretty handy for checking whether your data has been compromised:

    Doesn't mean you have been hacked though. Mine has 18 compromises but as long as your user ID and passwords vary across platforms you are generally pretty ok. If you use the same ones that's very dangerous.

    I know, it just means someone hacked a database that included your email address. Not much they can do with it without your password, other than send you spam.

    What is disconcerting is that there is no reassuring, or indeed any, messages coming out from the affected organisations. I rang my credit card company this afternoon and the chap I spoke to was not aware of the hack. He said if I had any concerns that they could change my card. I had used the card for the purchase of tickets and coach the Notts site. Not sure if the Football Assoc still use Ticketmaster.

    I expressed concern that the hierarchy had not informed their staff nor their customers. Ticketmaster have nothing on their website.

    I've got a couple of utility bills to pay and then I think I'll get new cards. No longer trust "the powers that be" to put customers' interests first despite "Your security is important to us".

    There's some information here which 'may' be helpful...

    I don't think it should be left for the BBC to advise what potentially affected card holders should do. No doubt credit card companies cannot handle re-issuing all their cards in one go so they are just hoping for the best.

    If they have not encrypted or hashed the credit card numbers, I'd be VERY surprised. That will come with massive fines that will more than likely end Ticketmaster. It is more likely they have your name and address (that's on the electoral roll anyway) and part of your credit card number. They won't be stealing your card, but you're more at risk of scammers attempting something in the future, but with a data set of half a billion ( or around 8% of the entire world population) I think you'll be fine
