Ticketmaster suffered a cybersecurity breach when hackers claimed to have stolen 560 million people’s information from the company's Snowflake account. The breach included personal details such as emails, phone numbers, and encrypted credit card information. A hacker group threatened to release 170,000 ticket barcodes for Taylor Swift concerts and demanded a $2 million USD ransom. Ticketmaster has confirmed a breach but stated that barcodes could not be copied due to their SafeTix technology, which refreshes the barcode every few seconds. The breach has raised concerns over customer data privacy and the company's cybersecurity measures.
