The Coachella Website Has Been Hacked, Data Breached

If you have ever used the Coachella website to buy tickets or conduct other business, beware. Goldenvoice, the people behind the festival, have confirmed that there was a hack on the website and that someone has gained access toto personal information, including full names, email addresses, phone numbers and birth dates.

The good news is that no ultra-sensitive date (passwords, credit card numbers) were stolen, but that what was taken could result in phishing scams.

[B]e aware that you may be targeted by phishing emails sent from people impersonating Coachella personnel. Please remember that Coachella will never solicit personal information or account information from you via email. Please exercise caution if you receive any emails or phone calls that ask for such information, or direct you to web sites where you are asked for personal or financial information.
