Startup bank Monzo: We warned Ticketmaster months ago of site fraud


Re: If Stupidity Were a Crime

I'm not sure Ticketmaster are a startup...

Mrs. YM was hacked following a Ticketmaster transaction, like many others reporting in the original thread. I'm sure those banks are capable of seeing Ticketmaster as the common factor and reported to them. I suspect there's a cosiness of relationship involved in bad publicity, but that other banks will come forward.

I also suspect that the reason for Ticketmasters complacency is that they had another leak, one they quietly fixed (perhaps back-office personnel based?) and finding one bomb left to comlacent as to the presence of another.

... you're right, though, Ticketmaster are clearly incompetent.
