Stubhub Accounts Hacked Due To Poor Password Management

Sep 25, 2014 // Jonathan Lee

Russian hackers used mismanaged Stubhub accounts to fuel their recent international money laundering operation. The hackers breached Stubhub accounts to purchase and resell high-demand tickets. Unlike Target’s security catastrophe, where the company was directly breached, Stubhub’s hack was likely a result of mismanaged passwords. Everyone should have a different password for each online account, consistently check your accounts for suspicious activity, and rotate your passwords using a strong password generator.
