Ticketmaster issued a warning to its customers this morning that it had suffered a malware attack, exposing 45,000 customers data to hackers.

The virus managed to access and copy UK customers data that have accounts on Ticketmaster International, Ticketmaster UK, GETMEIN!, and TicketWeb websites.

The virus copied people’s names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, payment details, and Ticketmaster login details.

If you have an account on any of these websites, you should change your account passwords on them and also any other websites you may have used that password.

If you are affected, its worthwhile keeping an eye on your bank transactions for a while as the extensive scope of data that was hacked, can easily be used to steal your identity.
