=================================================================================================

By Simon Sharwood, 23 Jul 2014

 

eBay's ticket-selling offshoot StubHub has admitted to a breach of some users' security by a ring of fraudsters.

Reuters and AP have both received notification from New York district attorney Cyrus Vance of an event to be staged on Wednesday morning US time, at which the details of the attack will be revealed.

 

Arrests in at least three nations will apparently be revealed.

StubHub admits that around 1,000 accounts were compromised, through attacks on account-holders rather than core systems.

Six men charged in StubHub cyber-theft case
Posted on 24 July 2014. Help Net Security
 
Six individuals have been charged in the US in connection with an international cybercrime ring that was able to take over StubHub user accounts, steal personal identifying information, use victims’ credit cards to make fraudulent electronic ticket purchases, and transfer the proceeds through a global network of accomplices in the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, and Canada. 
 
Stubhub was defrauded of around $1 million.

According to the indictment, StubHub, an eBay subsidiary that operates a public website and digital marketplace for customers to buy and sell e-tickets to various entertainment events, discovered that more than 1,000 accounts were compromised by individuals who used the preexisting credit card information associated with the accounts to purchase tickets without the legitimate cardholders’ authorization.
