Cybercriminals were able to gain access to at least 1,000 StubHub customer accounts in 2013, fraudulently purchasing tickets to concerns, sports games, and other live events. Using data breaches from other websites and relying on malware that compromised users, they were able to access account holder login and password data.




In a statement, StubHub said it applauded the efforts of New York City law enforcement to make arrests related to the case - including a case opened by the New York City District Attorney's Office. No internal technical or financial systems were breached by the hackers, and StubHub was quick to work with customers that were affected.
