Previously, the www.hukumindo.com platform has talk about "Immodestly Dressed Tourists Anger Indigenous People", "How to Open a Police Report in Indonesia?", you may read also "What's The Difference Between Police Report and Public Complaint?" and on this occasion we will discuss about 'Hackers Break into Ticketmaster Concert Ticket Website, Steal Millions of User Data'.

There's scary news for concert fans. The Ticketmaster concert ticket website was recently hacked by hackers, and the data of 560 million users was stolen. A hacker group called 'ShinyHunters' admitted its actions in an online forum. They said the stolen data included names, addresses, telephone numbers and some credit card details of Ticketmaster customers. This data is reportedly being sold for USD 500 thousand or around IDR 8.1 billion.[1]

The Australian government has checked this news and the FBI has also stepped in to help with the investigation. The Australian Department of Home Affairs is urging people with questions regarding this incident to contact Ticketmaster directly. Until now, Ticketmaster and Live Nation (its parent company) have not provided an official statement regarding this data leak. The authenticity of the data sold by ShinyHunters is still uncertain.[2]

This incident is predicted to impact around 2 million Australians and possibly foreigners, perhaps including Indonesian citizens, who have purchased tickets on this platform. Just in case, you can check your banking activities. If there is something suspicious, immediately block your credit card registered with Ticketmaster. Hopefully your data is safe![3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us for business inquiry, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.
