Coachella Website Hacked, User Data Reportedly For Sale On Dark Web

Coachella Website Hacked, User Data Reportedly For Sale On Dark Web

Coachella announced their web site got hacked most of their data has been stolen.

Your passwords are safe though.

Coachella has cemented itself as one of the top (if not the top) music festivals in North America, growing from one weekend to two (with a considered fall expansion) and constantly having the most lit guest appearances around. However, all that exposure is a double-edged sword. Their website was recently hacked, with the culprits gaining access to a bunch of user data.

Coachella sent an email out to all account holders, presumably dating back to the inaugural Coachella festival. The release assured everyone that financial data and user password were not among the leaked data. That’s a small bit of good news after acknowledging hackers had accessed usernames, first and last names, addresses, emails, phone numbers and dates of birth. Check out statements below, which warn of phishing attacks coming from fake Coachella representatives.
