Industry publications said the leak is part of an ongoing extortion scheme against Ticketmaster, which began in May when a hacking group stole personal data from millions of its customers.

A hacking group is claiming to have leaked over 38,000 print-at-home tickets from Ticketmaster for 154 upcoming concerts including Taylor Swift’s"Eras Tour," Pearl Jam, Phish and Foo Fighters, multiple industry publications have reported.

The cyberattack was confirmed by Ticketmaster’s parent company, Live Nation, in a federal filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which stated it identified “unauthorized activity within a third-party cloud database environment containing company data.” That third-party database was identified as Snowflake, a cloud storage firm used by several high-profile companies that were involved in other data breaches.

According to industry outlets like Infosecurity Magazine and BleepingComputer, the group initially said it had barcode data for 170,000 tickets to Taylor Swift’s"Eras Tour" that it would leak if its demands were not met.
