Event-ticketing company Ticketfly was still working to get back online Sunday, four days after a hacker reportedly hijacked the site and stole data from more than 26 million customers.
The breach apparently occurred Wednesday night, when a hacker took control of the site and demanded to be paid in bitcoin to release it. Last week, Vice’s Motherboard reported it communicated with someone claiming to be the hacker, who said they had asked Ticketfly for one bitcoin BTCUSD, -2.91% (around $7,500 at the time) in exchange for sharing details about the site’s vulnerability. The ransom was not paid, and the hacker posted user data online. Ticketfly said it took the site offline as a security measure.
