Coachella Site Hacked, User Account Info Stolen


WHILE ABOUT 35% CAME FROM STUDENTS. JEFF SUZIE. SUZIE: HACKERS HAVE HIT ONE OF THE LARGEST MUSIC FESTIVALS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, IF YOU’VE EVER GONE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE CRYSTAL. REPORTER: MILLION ACCOUNTS NEARLY HACKED, CHANGING PASSWORDS ACROSS ALL THEIR ONLINE SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS. ♪ ♪ FESTIVAL GO ERS SAD THAT BEYONCE WON’T HEADLINE THIS YEAR. I WAS UPSET. NOW ANOTHER LOW NOTE, COACHELLA GOERS TOLD VIA EMAIL THEIR SITE WAS HACKED AN USER PERSONAL INFORMATION STOLE SNEEN IT IS WORRYING. HACKERS GOT INFORMATION FROM THE SETUP SITE BUT NOT CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. THEY MIGHT BUY THIS DATA AND CHECK OTHER SOURCES LIKE BANKS TO SEE WHETHER OR NOT THE EMAIL ADDRESS AN PASSWORD WERE BEING USED. CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD. HE SAYS THE STOLEN INFO IS FOR SALE ON THE DARK WEB FOR JUST A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS. THE SELLER COULD BE FROM ANYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD. I’M JUST REALLY SURPRISED THAT SOMEONE CAN HACK SUCH A BIG NAME. HACKING TECHNIQUES ARE GETTING MORE SOPHISTICATED AND THERE’S FEWER PEOPLE TO DEFEND AGAINST THEM IN THE SECURITY PROFESSION SO NOW COACHELLA GOERS SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR EMAILS WANTING PERSONAL INFORMATION SOMETHING THAT COACHELLA SAYS THEY DO NOT SOLICIT. ALSO THIS IS A GOOD REMINDER FOR EVERYONE TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD OFTEN BECAUSE THIS COULD HAPPEN
