Hey all, bit of a niche one here but I got an email yesterday from ticketmaster saying they have had a data breach, as such they're offering a years free identity monitoring service with a "leading provider" to make sure your details havent been taken.

The email says that its for anyone who has "purchased or attempted to purchase tickets" on their website between February and june 23rd.

From what I can see it looks like you'll be able to have access to the years free if you have a live ticketmaster account.

Doesnt look like theres an expiry on it but worth signing up for if you have an account or if like me you actually purchased something and may have had your data stolen!

Says identify monitoring in title
Yeah, but not really a deal is it? I'd rather have to pay for the service and not have all my details, including payment card, in the hands of crooks and scammers.
As if they don't scam enough off the public - now we can get our accounts emptied properly.
Check your emails here (https://haveibeenpwned.com). You set it up to alert you when there has been a data breach with your email address in it. It's free.

Maybe other one is more intensive I have 6 on my email lol
This is total negligence.
If you read their official statement and compare it with Monzo's report there are a number of discrepancies.
Monzo alerted them to an issue in April and it took them until mid-June to find it? Unreal!
Not only that, but Monzo saw the fraud back in December - before Ticketmaster said the problem started.

I cant see how entering your email address would have anything to do with someone having your credit card number?


im surprised the deal has been voted cold, usually free stuff is what HDUK is all about

I get the data hack, I work in finance, my point is that "i got pwned" website has nothing to do with someone having your credit card details, Im just pointing out that people are voting this cold based on being poorly informed, they'd rather use a dubious website that "checks" your email address for hacks rather than using a free professional service.

each to their own i guess.

haveibeenpwned.com is actually pretty reputable.
However not really very relevant here as the hackers haven't released the private details into the wild.....yet.

The point is if ticketmaster hadn't monumentally f'ed up then they wouldn't be offering this free service. As such they've proven their technical people to be incapable of doing their jobs properly. To be hacked, meh, it happens. To be made aware about it and do nothing for so long whilst more victims are stacked up - unforgivable.

The free service offered is effective - but it's equally effective in blocking any applications you might make yourself. Adds a couple of days to any transactions (mobile phone purchases, for example, utilities, banks etc) which would normally go through in seconds. A serious nuisance on occasion.
