07 Jun Ticketfly Services Back Online After Breach
Ticketfly managed to restore some of its services last Tuesday after a cyber incident hit its website and compromised customer information.
Ticketfly was reportedly attacked by a hacker that goes by the handle IsHaKdZ who also put an image of the character V from the 2005 film “V for Vendetta on the website’s homepage. According to breach notification website Have I Been Pwned, the incident affected around 26 million users.
The hacker had reportedly notified Ticketfly of a flaw on their website and requested payment of 1 Bitcoin to fix it. According to Mashable who verified the hacker’s claims, it appeared that the large directory of spreadsheet files that seemed to contain personal data for Ticketfly customers and employees were authentic.
