NEXSTAR) — A notorious hacker group claims it has breached the data of about 560 million Ticketmaster users globally in a recent cyberattack, according to multiple reports.

The group called ShinyHunters alleges it accessed a trove of data from the ticketing giant, including names, emails, phone numbers, addresses and credit card details. Mashable and Newsweek reported that the hackers are trying to sell the information online for $500,000.

CyberDaily, an Australian-based tech outlet that first reported the breach, said the hackers posted that price tag on a dark web forum overnight on May 28.

The Australian Broadcasting Network also noted in a separate report that the country’s Department of Home Affairs is aware of the cyber incident and is working with Ticketmaster. However, neither Ticketmaster nor its parent company, LiveNation, has issued a public statement confirming the breach. Neither companies have returned Nexstar’s request for comment.
