Reports are breaking about another Ticketmaster data breach. While the ticketing giant has yet to confirm the breach, ShinyHunters, a notorious hacking collective claims to have the personal details of 560 million Ticketmaster customers available for a one-time sale. The hackers want $500,000 for the data.   

The hackers allegedly demanded a ransom for the data not to be released but claim that Ticketmaster did not respond. The stolen data is said to include customer names, addresses, emails, phone numbers and the last four digits and expiration date of credit cards. 

Ticketmaster has yet to make a statement on the alleged data hack. If sold, the data is very likely to be used to commit phishing attacks, identity theft, and more. 

At KP Law, we are investigating this breach to find out what happened and who is affected. Our data protection experts strongly advise anyone who might be involved in this breach to be vigilant and take necessary precautions. There is more information on how to do this here.     

At the moment, it looks likely that customers in Australia and New Zealand have had their data stolen. If UK customers are also affected by the latest Ticketmaster data breach, we will look to launch a no-win-no-fee group action claim to help victims living in England & Wales claim compensation.   

In 2022, Ticketmaster settled another data breach claim following successful mediation and negotiation. We were the only law firm to actively litigate this case in the UK and we represented over 1,000 customers in this action. Ticketmaster denied liability for the claims, and the settlement was made on a no-admission basis. Find out more about the case here.

In March 2024, our firm changed its name to KP Law.
