950,000 Coachella Music Festival Accounts for Sale
Data dump; Stolen credentials
Music lovers who in the past have or are planning to attend the Coachella festival may want to change their email passwords.
A data trader alleges to have more than 950,000 Coachella website user accounts for sale on a dark web marketplace called Tochka, Motherboard reported. The data includes email addresses, usernames and hashed passwords for Coachella.com and its message board.
Payment information doesn’t appear to be included, according to Motherboard.
Still, if Coachella attendees reuse usernames and passwords, they may want to brush up on how to choose a secure password and select a unique password for every site they visit.
